What I'm confused about is #3 -- how would that be germane? If some "host" sends SNMP traps to an IP broadcast address, the switch should ignore them because it will not be listening on UDP port 162. If instead of SNMP traps, the host were broadcasting SNMP GETs, that would make it as far as the community string check, which would require buffer storage for the switch SNMP process. And assuming that check failed, the generation of an authentication_failed trap to multiple trap receivers would require more buffers.
Can anyone (especially from the TAC) clarify this?
