Please I have switches on my network, all connected to a multilater switch with trunking and mant VLAN.I normaly have series of broadcast on the LAN. Please how can I detect broadcast,the source,the vlan and the particular switch.
2. If a cable is remove from any port on any switch on any VLAN,will I know by checking ''terminal monitor ''on any switch.
I am not sure,if I understood your questions,but I will try to answer according to what I believed it what you want.
1. "Please how can I detect broadcast,the source,the vlan and the particular switch.".
Each Vlan has separate Broadcast and by doing show "Vlan brief" you can know which vlan belong to which Broadcast.
"Show int trunk or Show vtp" ,will show you which source and the port. Also you can try "show interface Status". It will shows you which port is connected. finally, try "Show cdp neighbour or show cdp neighbour detail". This will show each source to your connection sand the appliances(switches)with their Vlans.
I had an issue like this a few years back. My client has one BIG FAT Layer 2 network (1 VLAN only!). We have a broadcast storm happening every afternoon around 5 pm. It took time, but we found out that it was caused by a Cisco switch being turned OFF when the owner would go home. It was also caused by the fact that portfast was enabled at both ports.
Unfortunately, it was no quick fix. We all had to trawl through the switch (3500XL running XU IOS) and find out which ports should have portfast turned off.
My suspicion is that you are in the same situation as I do. Enable spanning-tree bpduguard (globally or interface) and this should shut down ports where possible loops are coming from and fix each ports as you go.
yeah, thnx for reply. What I am saying is that. there was a time we had loop or broadcast issue where the return time is around 200 instead of 1. Its a network with many switches connected with many VLAN. what I need is a way to detect the loop on the network, either through 'terminal emulator' or any effective tools
