I'm looking for some good technical explanations on what affect unicast flooding or just excessive unicast traffic can have on a network. I know that my network's cam and arp timers are out of sync and unicast flooding is occurring every 5 minutes, but I'm looking for justification to get these synced up.
Here's the partial results of a 'sho int' from one of my vlans:
L2 Switched: ucast: 5804246620 pkt, 2701867618253 bytes - mcast: 4704092 pkt, 335588163 bytes
L3 in Switched: ucast: 177252646 pkt, 124539366887 bytes - mcast: 0 pkt, 0 bytes mcast
L3 out Switched: ucast: 611349324 pkt, 96313958155 bytes mcast: 0 pkt, 0 bytes
Thanks in advance.
