Storm Control vs. Port Blocking
Understanding Storm Control
Storm control prevents traffic on a LAN from being disrupted by a
broadcast, multicast, or unicast storm on one of the physical
A value of 0.0 means that all broadcast, multicast, or unicast traffic on that port is blocked.
Switch(config-if)# storm-control broadcast level 0
Switch(config-if)# storm-control unicast level 0
Switch(config-if)# storm-control multicast level 0
Configuring Port Blocking
By default, the switch floods packets with unknown destination MAC
addresses out of all ports. If unknown unicast and multicast traffic is
forwarded to a protected port, there could be security issues. To
prevent unknown unicast or multicast traffic from being forwarded from
one port to another, you can block a port (protected or nonprotected)
from flooding unknown unicast or multicast packets to other ports.
Switch(config-if)# switchport block multicast
Switch(config-if)# switchport block unicast
My question - Does storm-control broadcast level 0 same as switchport block unicast?
Is it right for multicast -storm-control multicast level 0 and switchport block multicast
