I have multiple switches with PtP ubiquity UHD5x systems. I noticed in aruba-central, those ports are causing a massive flood of random clients throughout our site in just one port, the uplink port of the PtP. The ARP of the switch is practically flooded from that port. Any ideas? Suggestions? How do I stop this PtP from flooding ARP.
Not sure what that equipment is or does, but from PtP it may be that these devices are 'mesh' APs. If you have mesh APs, you probably only need to connect the 'primary' to the network, others use the wireless network to connect back.
If these devices also have wired network ports, and they mesh/bridge on their wired network ports as well, you create a network loop that not only forwards ARP but any traffic.
If this is not the issue, having more understanding about the network topology (diagram) would help.
Here's a quickly sketched drawing lol.. All it is a wireless point to point system. Simple, system yet it seems to be causing issues with Aruba-Central client sight.
Seems there is no loop in there.... I would to a packet capture on the ports reported to be flooded and see what is the traffic and where it originates from, now I would not have an idea. You may work with your Aruba partner or Aruba support on that as having interactive access and checking things on the fly will help to speed up the resolution.
