sh int status

HI ,

 

When I see "sh int status" from core switch --access switch port, I am getting huge count of Broadcast/multicast packet

 

How to refrain that behaviour & how to check what machine/host is generating the traffic.

 

Also any fine-tuning needs to be done in our network to control that behaviour.

Hi Subhojit,The only way that

Hi Subhojit,

The only way that you will be able to know the source of the broadcast / multicast traffic is by getting a sniffer capture and analyzing it.

In order to contain / limit unicast / broadcast / multicast traffic, you need to configure storm-control on the affected ports. You may refer the following link for detailed information.

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

Arun
