VLANs are like classrooms, where the size of the room is relative to the IP address block size. Anytime you try to send a message, like passing a paper note, you have to send it to everyone in the room before your message leaves the room, where the door is the default gateway and the closest person to it hands it off. People in other rooms (VLANs) will not see the note unless it was allowed and explicitly sent to them, in which case the hall monitor (router) will give it to that room. The note is then passed around in that room until it reaches the intended recipient.

Hey all, We recently upgraded our network to a full Meraki deployment and have 2 MX84s in an HA pair at the WAN edge. Due to our current IP addressing + demarcation situation with the secondary INET though, we don't have full dual WAN HA redundancy. So while there is WAN redundancy on the Primary, without setting up either a VIP configuration or using an ISP switch, our WAN2 link is permanently down on the Secondary MX. That issue aside, on the Summary Reports we've observed values on the WAN2 link showing 50% packet loss and uptime. This leads me to believe that these stats are aggregated between both the primary and secondary appliances, but I have not been able to find any information that confirms this. Am I correct in assuming that?
