Storm-Control on X6704-10GE

Since storm-control on 10G interface was enabled, following message began logged in syslog.

>> %PM_PLATFORM-5-PORTDROP: Port TenGigabitEthernet1/1 dropped packets due  to storm control

There is no application using broadcast or multicast, so ifInBroadcastPkts and ifInMulticastPkts are very low.
And I found the message appeared only when input rate was above 50Mbps.
The suppression level was configured 0.50% at Te1/1.
I think there is a bug because 50Mbps is 0.50% of 10Gbps, but BugToolkit gave no answer.

The hardware is SUP720-3C + X6704-10GE, IOS is 12.2(33)SXH
This Cat also has X6748-SFP, and storm-control are working fine without false message on these I/F.

Any hints or suggestions are appreciated.
## port monitor will be a last way because the Cat6500 is already in customer site and they don't like we take thier data.

This is the third time you have posted this discussion and deleted the others!!

Re: Storm-Control on X6704-10GE

Is you IOS code 12-2(33)SXH4?

See this bug CSCta93296. Even though the bug says ACE, it does apply to other modules on the 6500 with that code..
