I need to protect 6509 with 6724-sfp module from loop. So I want to use storm control. But cisco said:

When multicast suppression is enabled, traffic storm control suppresses BPDUs when the multicast suppression threshold is exceeded on these modules:








When multicast suppression is enabled on the listed modules, do not configure traffic storm control on STP-protected ports that need to receive BPDUs.

You know there will be much broadcast and multicast when loop occurs.

So how to protect 6509 with 6724-sfp module ?

You can configure storm control on a port and enter the threshold level that you want to be used by a particular type of traffic.
