Just wondering if anyone has encountered this problem before.
I have tested this on a 2950, 2960 and 3560 and they all seem to react the same
When we have devices connected to ports with Unicast storm controll enabled traffic passes without any problems. as soon as we start a SCP file transfer it triggers unicast storm controll. All other forms of file transfer works fine.
Here is the sw version info from the 2960 I just tested it on
It seems that the switch sees all SCP traffic as a unicast flood even though the source and destination mac addresses are known to the switch.
If I copy a file using FTP transfer I can transfer between server and client as fast as the network will allow and "sho storm-control unicast " shows the unicast storm level to be 0%. As soon as I change over to SCP it registers all the SCP traffic as unicast flood.
I want to enable flood protection on the network as that sometimes does get triggered for valid reasons, but if I do it, it will break other things like when our systems guys have to vmotion a host across the network.
Also some of customers will be using SCP to copy files and I do not want to impact legitimate traffic. My concern is that I have now identified this as a problem so who knows what other protocols will also trigger Unicast storm control.
Looks like I will have to log a tac case on this, was just wondering if anyone else came across this.
