How to Detect Excessive Flooding

Most switches implement no special command to detect flooding. Catalyst 6000 Supervisor Engine 2 and higher running Native IOS software 12.1(19)E and higher implements 'unicast flood protection' feature. In short this feature allows the switch to monitor the amount of unicast flooding per vlan and take specified action if flooding exceeds specified amount. Actions can be to syslog, limit or shutdown vlan - the syslog being the most useful for flood detection. When flooding exceeds the configured rate and the action configured is syslog, message similar to the following will be printed:


%UNICAST_FLOOD-4-DETECTED: Host 0000.0000.2100 on vlan 1 is flooding to an unknown unicast destination at a rate

greater than/equal to 1 Kfps

I don't think it is available in cat 4k. You can try to look in the Feature Navigator tool.
