%STORM_CONTROL-3-FILTERED: A Unicast storm detected on

Goodday,

For some days i'm getting the following "error"  message on the switch

%STORM_CONTROL-3-FILTERED: A Unicast storm detected on GI0/47  A packet filter action has been applied

Port 0/47 is connected to a another switch with the following stormcontrol configuration. 

storm-control broadcast level 30.00
storm-control multicast level 40.00
storm-control unicast level 70.00

my question is how to troubleshoot on the switch which is connected to GI0/47  which device is causing the unicast traffic.

Thanks in advance

Hello Topcu

If you are continuously facing this problem, then the best way to investigate this issue is to perform a sniffer capture. Configure a span session on the switch and redirect the traffic coming on port gi0/47 towards a port connected to a PC having wireshark. This will help understand from where you are receiving the traffic and what is the src mac for that frame.

I would also like to know what platform are you having. Could you please share the show version output from the switch.

Thanks

Hello,

You can also configure that specific interface to send snmp traps to a server as well as Vinit solution. Please take a look at the link below
