Hi,

 

Please answer the following question in order to understand;

 

1) Device Role?

2) it is downlink or uplinks?

3) Access interface or Trunk?

4) Connected end host devices?

5) Any special QoS configuration applied?

6) When do you start facing this issue and its new devices or old?

7) Did you check is there any broadcast storm in your network usually when broadcast devices are connected you will face a similar issue?

Re: WS-C4510R-E / Troubleshooting

Hi Jhon,

 

I got you, The AG switch is receiving the high number of broadcast traffic coming from broadcast devices and a result the interface drop the packets after the TX buffer getting full.

Solution: Please trace the devices and drop the mac on the access device to stop the packets being sent.

 

Please don't forget to rate!

Re: WS-C4510R-E / Troubleshooting

Hello,

 

what does the configuration look like, do you have any QoS configured ? Which IOS version are you running (post the output of 'sh ver') ?

Re: WS-C4510R-E / Troubleshooting

To adds to Georges post , are there gig device connected to these fast ethernet ports you maybe easily oversubscribing the ports ?

You will nearly always see drops but the drop rate should stay below 1 % if not you have an issue as per Cisco standard , have you calculated the drop rate compared to the data rate going through the ports to see what percentage it is ?

Hi @TAYYAB MUNIR

  • Device working as a Aggregator.

Thanks

Re: WS-C4510R-E / Troubleshooting

IF this switch is acting as a Distro, what kind of line card? Not all like cards, particularly line cards designed for access switching have deep buffers.
What happens if you move the links to the supervisor card?

Re: WS-C4510R-E / Troubleshooting

What device was causing the broadcasts ? And how did you finally resolve this ?

Re: WS-C4510R-E / Troubleshooting

HI,

 

We found TP-Link devices are connected with the 2960 switch and its generating huge Broadcast in the network, I drop the mac address of the TP-Link device and clear the counter so far everything is OK.

Re: WS-C4510R-E / Troubleshooting

set storm control on the Cisco ports especially going back to the TP switches make sure it doesn't happen again
