Frame Relay Interface Incrementing

What would cause the interface broadcast counter to constantly incrementing?

Serial0/2 is up, line protocol is up

Hardware is PowerQUICC Serial

Description: Athena F/R Cloud via BellSouth #L2HCG5578579

MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1544 Kbit, DLY 20000 usec,

reliability 255/255, txload 30/255, rxload 14/255

Encapsulation FRAME-RELAY, loopback not set

Keepalive set (10 sec)

LMI enq sent 149, LMI stat recvd 149, LMI upd recvd 0, DTE LMI up

LMI enq recvd 0, LMI stat sent 0, LMI upd sent 0

LMI DLCI 0 LMI type is ANSI Annex D frame relay DTE

Broadcast queue 0/64, broadcasts sent/dropped 4613/0, interface broadcasts 4163

Last input 00:00:00, output 00:00:00, output hang never

Last clearing of "show interface" counters 00:24:41

Input queue: 0/75/0 (size/max/drops); Total output drops: 0

Queueing strategy: weighted fair

Output queue: 0/1000/64/0 (size/max total/threshold/drops)

Conversations 0/12/256 (active/max active/max total)

Reserved Conversations 0/0 (allocated/max allocated)

5 minute input rate 87000 bits/sec, 34 packets/sec

5 minute output rate 186000 bits/sec, 39 packets/sec

46755 packets input, 12217933 bytes, 0 no buffer

Received 0 broadcasts, 0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles

0 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored, 0 abort

49990 packets output, 33356196 bytes, 0 underruns

0 output errors, 0 collisions, 0 interface resets

0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out

0 carrier transitions

Re: Frame Relay Interface Incrementing

Routing protocol traffic (hellos, updates, etc)

Re: Frame Relay Interface Incrementing

You may be having the routing protocol running over this serial link with "frame-relay-map ip.." command to map ip address with dlci. Now doyou have "broadcast" used with that frame-relay map command?

Many broadcasts are because of routing updates over that link.

Pl. post the config here to comment on that.
