COPP - class station-ip.

  • 1.  COPP - class station-ip.

    Posted Sep 03, 2019 07:41 AM

    In a new deployment i see a lot of COPP messages on a 2930M switch about class station-IP. COPP is enabled with default values, can someone explain what a class station-ip traffic means?

    I had actually opened a ticket about this not to long ago. TAC had told me that station-ip is essentially taffic that is intended for the switch falls into that class.

    We have a lot of SNMP/ICMP monitoring(Airwave/PRTG/etc) which I assumed to be the culprit, so I just increased the default value

    Thanks for your suggestion, as we are still in project phase we have no SNMP or airwave connected to the switches yet. But i did enable ClearPass to read snmp.

     

    i have disabled snmp read from clearpass yesterday afternoon, and since then the messages stopped.
