Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.2X50-D10.

Description

Configure the storm control level as the bandwidth in kilobits per second of the available bandwidth used by the combined broadcast, multicast, and unknown unicast traffic streams.

Note

When you configure storm control level on an aggregated Ethernet interface, the storm control level for each member of the aggregated Ethernet interface is set to that bandwidth. For example, if you configure a storm control level of 15,000 Kbps on ae1, and ae1 has two members, ge-0/0/0 and ge-0/0/1, each member has a storm control level of 15,000 Kbps. Thus, the storm control level on ae1 allows a traffic rate of up to 30,000 Kbps of combined broadcast, multicast, and unknown unicast traffic.

Default

On EX4300 switches—If you do not specify the storm control level using either the bandwidth-level or the bandwidth-percentage statements, the storm control level defaults to 80 percent of the available bandwidth used by the combined broadcast, unknown unicast, and multicast traffic streams.

On EX9200 switches—Storm control is not enabled by default.

On MX Series routers—Storm control is not enabled by default.

Options

bandwidth-level kbps—Traffic rate in kilobits per second of the combined broadcast, multicast, and unknown unicast traffic streams.

Range: 100 through 10,000,000

Range: 100 through 100,000,000 on QFX10000 Series switches

Default: None
