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:
exit exit copy running-config startup-config
To see the data of the packet counters on the port, for example:
show interfaces counters ethernet g1
