Configuring Storm Control on Alcatel OmniStack LS 6224

In this article I will give an example of setting up broadcast and multicast control on the Alcatel OmniStack LS 6224 switch.

Connect to the switch and go into the configuration mode:


Select the ports on which you want to enable Storm Control:

interface range ethernet e1-24

Turn on the control of broadcast traffic and specify a limit of 70 kilobits per second:

port storm-control broadcast enable
port storm-control broadcast rate 70

If you want to limit also multicast traffic, then execute the following command:

port storm-control include-multicast

The standard value is 3500, the possible range for ethernet ports is 70 – 100000, for gigabit ports 3500 – 1000000.

Now it remains to exit the configuration mode and save the configuration:

copy running-config startup-config

To see the data of the packet counters on the port, for example:

show interfaces counters ethernet g1
