Storm control issue

I have two core switches (3750 in stack).

Access Switch IE-3010.

ON THE ACCESS SWITCH CCTV CAMERA ATTACHED. THE L-3 VLAN IS CONFIGURED ON CORE SWITCHES.

DEFAULT ROUTE IS CONFIGURED ON ACCESS SWITCH TOWARDS CORE SWITCHES.

I HAVE CONFIGURED THE STORM CONTROL UNICAST , MULTICAST, BROADCAST  LEVEL 65 - 87 ON TRUNK PORT IN & OUT. INTERFACE LIKE ACCESS TO CORE TRUNK LINK ONLY.

NOW ISSUE IS THAT HOW TO DECIDE THE PARAMETERS OF STORM CONTROL LEVEL. 

HOW TO CHECK THE STORM CONTROL TRAFFIC ON INTERFACE FOR PARAMETERS.

SHOW INTERFACE GIG X/X COUNTERS 

IS THERE ANY TOOL FOR PMEASE SUGGEST.

THANKS & REGARDS

Hello! Good morning, 

Hello! Good morning, 

To check the counters and the outputs of the storm control, please use the next commands:

Use the show interface typeX/X capabilities command to determine the mode in which storm control is supported on an interface.

Use the show interfaces counters storm-control command to display a count of discarded packets.

You can also use the command show storm-control. In that output “current” represents the percentage of traffic suppressed at a given instant, and the value is N/A for ports that perform suppression in hardware.

Hello

Start with a higher level and monitor the interfaces over a certain amount of time and then you should get a good baseline as to whats is a good level to sustain you network without diminishing connectivity.

sh storm control xxxx (unicast/broadcast/mulitcast)

Note : Broadcast and multicast are in situate when both enabled at the same time, Meaning if ether or both of their define levels are exceeded traffic will be blocked.
