    Whether it makes sense or not depends on the network. I've seen setups similar to this with eight plus routers on a single broadcast domain.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    That's fair (I've also had multiple routers on one broadcast domain), but it doesn't make sense for this network, since the routers are only connecting to switches that are already on the same broadcast domain. The routers have no traffic to route from client machines (other than server0, which was also in the large broadcast design in OP's diagram, but is segmented in this version).

    Wow. I'm not sure I can help how incorrect your understanding is, but I'll try. Routers on the same logical switched network are on the same broadcast domain, period. The switches in that diagram are connected to each other. That they are also connected to routers does not magically separate their broadcast domains. There are six broadcast domains in the pictured network, five between each router and one with every single device. Nothing needs to get routed to go from any router to any other router, because they are all connected by switches.

    Edit: Just to ensure there's no ambiguity about which diagram I'm referencing, it's this one:

    you said before that there were 6 broadcast domains... thats why i ilustrated the diagram.

    There are six in OP's diagram. You changed one switch to a router, which created two more. Perhaps he intended it to be a router, but it wasn't.
