too many questions unanswered in your problem description..Your question is almost like me asking, why did my vehicle, a 1996 toyota corolla start running slow on friday..
A technician might need to need to know;
firmware version on the switch
running configuration or a show debug
maybe simultaneous wireshark captures to validate your description
To check the traffic type
to see if the traffic is originating from a single traffic source NIC
Is the observed traffic an infusion of multicast or broadcast packets from a bad NIC card, dunno
Why not open a case with the good folk at Small Business Support Center (SBSC) and seek their advice or a solution to the issues. Normally they look at break/fix issue not network performance, but those tremendous folks try their best to help my customers. So give them a go.
Hi Elvind, judging on the date of this topic, I would venture to say he is running older firmware which had a bug every 50 days it would 'broadcast' all traffic on all ports due to the cam table dropping. This bug was fixed on 126.96.36.199 release.
