Storm control problem

Unanswered Question

Hi!


I need to config storm control to Catalyst2960s Swith to prevent broadcast traffic.


So I did a test making a self-loop but storm control was not working.


And I found that port was blocked by spanning tree. I configed "no spanning tree"command and then storm control was working.


I want to limit broadcast traffic by storm control command not spanning tree block.


Does anyone know about this problem?


Thanks in advance

Hi,


When Cat2960S switch experiences self-loop at a port with spanning tree configured then STP blocks the port. This is quite normal and expected behaviour which has nothing to do with the storm control. So you should choose another method of the broadcast storm control test (with spanning tree enabled).


Best regards,

Antonin
