Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.6 for EX Series switches.
Shut down or disable interfaces when the storm control level is exceeded, as follows:
- If you set both the action-shutdown and the port-error-disable statements, the interfaces are disabled temporarily and recover automatically when the disable timeout expires.
- If you set the action-shutdown statement and do not the specify the port-error-disable statement, the interfaces that are enabled for storm control are shut down when the storm control level is exceeded and they do not recover automatically from that port-error condition. You must issue the clear ethernet-switching port-error command to clear the port error and restore the interfaces to service.
The action-shutdown option is not enabled. When the storm control level is exceeded, the switch drops unknown unicast and broadcast messages on the specified interfaces.
