How to configure Storm Control?

Storm control prevents interfaces from disruptions by providing protection against excessive ingress rates of unknown-unicast, multicast, and broadcast traffic. The function can be set under switch-profile.

 

See an example below .
The settings are to allow only 50% of interface speed to be used for unknown unicast, broadcast and multicast traffic.

 

(host) (config) #interface-profile switching-profile STORM_CONTROL

(host) (switching profile "STORM_CONTROL") #storm-control-bandwidth 50

(host) (switching profile "STORM_CONTROL") #storm-control-unknown-unicast

(host) (switching profile "STORM_CONTROL") #storm-control-multicast

(host) (switching profile "STORM_CONTROL") #storm-control-broadcast

(host) (config) #interface gigabitethernet 0/0/20

(host) (gigabitethernet "0/0/20") #switching-profile STORM_CONTROL
