Hello Carl,

connect a PC with wireshark on a port of the same vlan and see what they are: being broadcast you should receive them.

Also be aware that depending on platforms there can be a single counter for both broadcast and multicast frames.

Hope to help

Hi there

I have already done this and from any port can see 13 broadcasts per sec,

Is this high? it seems to be to me!

Re: broadcasts high or not ?

Seems high to me too. Why would it even be broadcasting. Even if you are using DHCP that wouldn't account for that much traffic. Is it only IP or do you see other protocols (Netware, Appletalk, etc...) broadcasting?

Re: broadcasts high or not ?
