A group of Windows PCs in a new subnet has been added to an Ethernet network.
It has two conceptually separate but closely coupled layers in the OSI model sense: VL1 is the underlying peer to peer transport layer, the "virtual wire," while VL2 is an emulated Ethernet layer that provides operating systems and apps with a familiar communication medium.
VL1 is a peer to peer network that does the same thing by using encryption, authentication, and a lot of networking tricks to create virtual wires on a dynamic as-needed basis. A user can start a new ZeroTier node without having to write configuration files or provide the IP addresses of other nodes.
It's also designed to be fast. Any two devices in the world should be able to locate each other and communicate almost instantly. At the base of the network is a collection of always-present root servers whose role is similar to that of DNS root name servers.
Roots run the same software as regular endpoints but reside at fast stable locations on the network and are designated as such by a world definition. World definitions come in two forms: The protocol includes a secure mechanism allowing world definitions to be updated in-band if root servers' IP addresses or ZeroTier addresses change.
There is only one planet. Earth's root servers are operated by ZeroTier, Inc. There are currently twelve root servers organized into two six-member clusters distributed across every major continent and multiple network providers. Almost everyone in the world has one within less than ms network latency from their location.
A node can "orbit" any number of moons. A moon is just a convenient way to add user-defined root servers to the pool. Users can create moons to reduce dependency on ZeroTier, Inc.
For on-premise SDN use a cluster of root servers can be located inside a building or data center so that ZeroTier can continue to operate normally if Internet connectivity is lost.
Nodes start with no direct links to one another, only upstream to roots planet and moons. Every peer on VL1 possesses a globally unique bit 10 hex digit ZeroTier address, but unlike IP addresses these are opaque cryptographic identifiers that encode no routing information.
To communicate peers first send packets "up" the tree, and as these packets traverse the network they trigger the opportunistic creation of direct links along the way. The tree is constantly trying to "collapse itself" to optimize itself to the pattern of traffic it is carrying.
Peer to peer connection setup goes like this: A wants to send a packet to B, but since it has no direct path it sends it upstream to R a root. If R has a direct link to B, it forwards the packet there. Otherwise it sends the packet upstream until planetary roots are reached.
Planetary roots know about all nodes, so eventually the packet will reach B if B is online. R also sends a message called rendezvous to A containing hints about how it might reach B.
Meanwhile the root that forwards the packet to B sends rendezvous informing B how it might reach A. A and B get their rendezvous messages and attempt to send test messages to each other, possibly accomplishing hole punching of any NATs or stateful firewalls that happen to be in the way.
If this works a direct link is established and packets no longer need to take the scenic route. Since roots forward packets, A and B can reach each other instantly. A and B then begin attempting to make a direct peer to peer connection.
If this succeeds it results in a faster lower latency link. We call this transport triggered link provisioning since it's the forwarding of the packet itself that triggers the peer to peer network to attempt direct connection.The purpose of a network performance baseline is to record the characteristics of a network during normal operations.

This is a tricky question. We know the switch with lowest value of priority is elected the root switch. Therefore in this question the switches with priority of , , (which are lower than the current value of the root bridge ) are not joining the root bridge election by somehow.
