Traffic storm control monitors the level of each traffic type for which you enable traffic storm control in 1-second traffic storm control intervals. Within an interval, when the ingress traffic for which traffic storm control is enabled reaches the traffic storm control level that is configured on the port, traffic storm control drops the traffic until the traffic storm control interval ends.

The following are examples of traffic storm control behavior:

* If you enable broadcast traffic storm control, and broadcast traffic exceeds the level within a 1-second traffic storm control interval, traffic storm control drops all broadcast traffic until the end of the traffic storm control interval.


* If you enable broadcast and multicast traffic storm control, and the combined broadcast and multicast traffic exceeds the level within a1-second traffic storm control interval, traffic storm control drops all broadcast and multicast traffic until the end of the traffic storm control interval..

Put sniffer and do mirror port on switch. See TOP ten talkers or top ten broadcast generators.
