Storm Control Question
I have a question about Storm Control;
In the Solution Guide Vol II, Lab 4, it states the following;
When the threshold of unicast or broadcast traffic is exceeded, traffic in excess of the threshold is dropped.
However in the configuration guide, it states the following:
With each method, the port blocks traffic when the rising threshold is reached. The port remains blocked until the traffic rate drops below the falling threshold (if one is specified) and then resumes normal forwarding.
I try to validate which is correct- all traffic filter or just excessive traffic filtered - , but I found it difficult because the switch only logs when the filter kicks IN not when it kicks out. But from a "eye ball" test, no timestamp verification it appears that all traffic gets filtered.
*Note, I was testing the unicast storm control.
