    Hi all,

    is there a command how to activate the filtering of

    The last couple weeks we have quiet often the Problem with a MC / BC
    Storm and the Network goes down really bad.

    I activated the Automatic Control under the HP switches now but don't
    know the command for the Cisco devices (2950 / 35XX)

    Thank you in advance

    Configuring Port-Based Traffic Control

    Would seem to be what you need.

    Try the storm-control statement on the interfaces. Look at the options,
    you can define percentages of bandwidth from the physical port to let
    broadcasts/multicasts through.

    Thank you for the quick response.
    Does anybody have a good number for the level?


    Thank you

    Your problem is most likely being caused by a spanning-tree loop.
    Storm-control is not going to fix the problem, it will only cause a
    different one. You need to investigate why and where this is happening.
    Map out you layer 2 network connections and figure out where to break
    connections to break the network into separate ones. Do this in advance so
    the next time you see the problem you have a game plan for trying to figure
    out why it is happening.
