Configuring a Broadcast Limit on the Switch

 

 



Solution:

Broadcast-limit <0-99>

This is the maximum of network bandwidth in per cent that can be used for broadcast and multicast traffic. Any broadcast or multicast limit exceeding that limit will be dropped

Enables or disables broadcast limiting for outbound broadcasts on a selected port on the switch. The value selected is the percentage of traffic allowed, for example, broadcast-limit 5 allows 5% of the maximum amount of traffic for that port. A value of zero disables broadcast limiting for that port.

Switch to port context level before issuing the broadcast-limit command. This feature is not appropriate for networks requiring high levels of IPX or RIP broadcast traffic

HP-Switch-5406zl(config)# show interface brief a5
