Re: Broadcasts rates on Radio and ethernet interface

Hi John,

The received broadcasts shown in your CLI output is not a rate, but rather a total count of broadcast packets received on that interface. The difference in the count on your gig0 interface verses Rad0 simply means you have more traffic on gig0.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,

-John
