Excessive Broadcast traffic on Lan
Posted on 1998-09-08
Since the installation of 50 NT servers on the Lan, broadcast traffic has increased exponentially.
We have 42 individual networks, some on the routers, and a major 800 user Fast Ethernet segment on Layer three switches.
Is there any broadcast traffic that can be totally eliminated using WINS servers (or any other means), or any time settings that can be changed on the NT/95 boxes that would make a substantial reduction in broadcast traffic?
