Errdisable Port State Recovery

All,

I am testing 2960 24 S  with storm-control  and Errdisable Port timer interval 60s , connected HUB on fa0/17 to make traffic / loop

After Strom Control detection the interface goes down thats ok  after 60s they will try to recover the interface and going up although the loop is still there.

For my understanding if the interface detect still a loop on that interface they will disable the port again for 60s and will check  again

any idea ?

00:55:10: %PM-4-ERR_DISABLE: storm-control error detected on Fa0/17, putting Fa0/17 in err-disable state

00:55:10: %STORM_CONTROL-3-SHUTDOWN: A packet storm was detected on Fa0/17. The interface has been disabled.

Errdisable Port State Recovery

Hi,

storm control has got nothing to do with loops, it's just a feature that measures the amount of broadcast or unicast or multicast frames entering the port and when a threshold is attained it will either drop the traffic or errdisable the port which is your case.

when you reenable the port if the level of broadcast is below the threshold then the port will stay up.

Regards.

Hi Alain,

thanks for your reply. As you descripted with reenable the port .. but I did not reenabled the port manually.. they should check if  still Broadcast ,unicast  etc. reached the threshold if yes the interface should go down again at second time but during the second time check the port is up automaticly.

Regards,

Ahmet

Hi,

So that probably means the level of broadcast is then under the configured threshold, can you do sh storm-control broadcast as well as sh interface to verify.

Regards.

Hi,

storm-control was not in effect in both cases as the current broadcast level was under the threshold.

Hi,

For how long does your fa0/17 interface go up after re-enabled via the timer? As the traffic measurements and comparisons are based on 1 second time interval it should always go up for at least 1 second after re-enabled even if the loop remains there.

Best regards,

Antonin

Hi,

the Fa0/17 goes up after the timer and was still up I don't see any logs.

Best Regards,

Ahmet
