Buffer Misses On an hourly basis

Can anyone advise on guidelines I should pay attention to when determining if there is to much broadcase traffic in my network?

For instance if I am looking at my switch should I see any buffer misses within a one hour time period?

Are buffer misses a negative thing?

Thanks.

Re: Buffer Misses On an hourly basis

Buffer Misses identifies the number of times that a buffer has been requested and the RP detected in which pool additional buffers were required. In other words, the number of buffers in the free list has dropped below min level. The misses counter represents the number of times the RP has been forced to create additional buffers.

Check out the following link for more info on Buffer Misses :
