RSPAN floods traffic over all ports

Hi,

we have some Cisco switches in IBM Bladecenters:

CIGESM Software (CIGESM-I6Q4L2-M), Version 12.1(22)EA9.

They are connected to 6513 SUP720.

I'm starting the following monitoring session on 6513:

monitor session 1 source remote vlan 500

monitor session 1 destination interface Gi13/35

and on the blade's switche:

monitor session 1 source gig0/3

monitor session 1 destination remote vlan 500 reflector-port gig0/20

Switch's management VLAN is 352

The trunk config on blade switch looks like:

Port Vlans allowed on trunk

Gi0/1 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/2 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/3 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/4 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/5 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/6 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/7 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/8 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/9 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/10 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/11 348,900,904,908,912,916,920,924,928,932,936,940,944,948,952

Gi0/14 2-351,353-499,501-4094

Gi0/15 352

Gi0/19 600

Po1 1-497,499-4094

On the system connected to the interface Gi13/35on 6513 I can see the traffic from the bladeswitch's monitored port, but after around 5-10 minutes I can see that the traffic on interfaces Gi0/1-10 and Gi0/14 on the blade switch inreaces dramaticaly (see the picture) from 100 Kbits to 200Mbit and sometimes it leads to the "overutilisation" of interface and connected systems are loosing the network.

What is the problem? Configuration bug or IOS bug. Have anybody met such a problem?

thank you

Re: RSPAN floods traffic over all ports

Hi,

How is gig0/20 on the blade switch configured ?

How is STP setup ?

BR,

Re: RSPAN floods traffic over all ports

Gig0/20 is not configured, has the defaults:

interface GigabitEthernet0/20

switchport mode access

spanning-tree bpdufilter disable

spanning-tree bpduguard enable

we use MSTP:

(VLAN 498 has some special purpose and routed)

Re: RSPAN floods traffic over all ports

Hi,

I've found some problem in our MST configuration, but it was not related to RSPAN problem - the dedicated interfaces for VLAN498 was configured as access and not as trunk.

and the question again,

why should the RSPAN session flood the traffic over all ports on the source switch?
