    "As might be expected" means "as you can reasonably expect, as you might have expected."
    It means that it is what we all reasonably expect.


    2)Root Bridge election is an ongoing process, triggered by Root Bridge ID
    changes in the BPDUs every 2 seconds
    i don't understand why trigger take ed (is it an adj or past simple)

    Root Bridge election is an ongoing process, which is triggered by Root Bridge ID changes in the BPDUs every 2 seconds.

    It is an ongoing process, and it is triggered by Root Bridge ID changes in the BPDUs every 2 seconds.
