Brocade: Redundant Fiber Links And 99% CPU Utilization

You gotta have spanning-tree folks when you do redundant fiber links.  Either that, or do what I prefer which is static trunks (which is the same as Cisco etherchannel).  Networks dont like loops, and can you blame them?  They cause havoc!!!
I sat at home tonight while another engineer who lived close to this customer went onsite.  99% utilization on the core and as it turns out, if you plug that second fiber in, the network goes nuts.
