Thanks

Re: Storm Control

it's depending on how much your broadcast and multicast traffic you expect. from my experience, i limit b/c and m/c to 10% each for normal customer traffic. if you have many application sending multicast and broadcast, like video-conference, database collaboration and so-what application, it might be suitable to increase the ratio.

Storm Control

hi,

in my network, we do have network sharing file, which contain video, music files, if i set this b/c or m/c to 10%, will it stop this file sharing?

pls advise

i want to set this b/c or m/c or unicast traffic, just want to prevent in future, if there is any virus spread or any network looping or any network broadcast storm which may congest network issue.

pls advise

Hi,

I wouldn't set storm-control for multicast too high because then it could stop all traffic on your switch because when the threshold for multicast isnreached then even broadcast and unicast are dropped.

Regards.

Storm Control

hi,

so in my scenario, it is not using multicast and broadcast for video / music streaming, right? as we only shared the network drive to access, and play the video and music.

1. so it will not influence my m/c or b/c percentage, right?

2. pls give me guideline, and to set m/c or b/c is good to help to prevent when there is a lot traffic such as broadcast storm/virus spreading, right?
