Computer network is a essential element that has become a critical element in modern human life. As a critical element, some distraction may occur on computer network, till can interfere computer network operations. The kinds of distractions such as distraction from physical (hardware) and software. To minimize this distractions, Cisco Systems. Inc develop some redundancy protocols namely HSRP, VRRP and GLBP. Generally, each protocol have a similiar procedure with differences in the algorithm. Because that, testing is carried out to know differences in the performance of each protocol in minimizing the distraction. Each protocol tested with four test parameters, such as Quality of Service, Recovery Time, Routing Overhead and CPU and memory usage. From the test results, can be concluded each protocol has pretty good performance, without significant interference. HSRP protocol has advantages on lowest delay and jitter, VRRP protocol has advantages on lowest memory usage and Routing Overhead, and GLBP has advantages on lowest packet loss, throughput, CPU usage and recovery time.
