Confirmation on 'storm-control broadcast' command

Answered Question
Apr 17th, 2009

Folks, if I use the config below on my 6513, what will be the action taken if broadcast levels go let's say, 20%?

I mean, I want to confirm that the below is enough to prevent action against broadcast, or in addition to the command below, I need to do "#storm-control action..." as well?


int f3/1


switchport mode access

no ip access

storm-control broadcast level 15.00

storm-control muticast level 15.00


I have this problem too.

if inbound broadcast traffic is more then 15% in a 1 second interval it is dropped.

No additional action should be needed.

Verify the type of linecard you have because there are some differences


Hope to help
