I need to know how to map the interface on a catalyst 3524 closet switch to the IP address of the node connected to that interface.

Basically, we have 4 cisco catalyst switches in a subnet and one of the nodes in theses subnets is causing a lot of traffic, so I want to figure out the switch and the interface on the switch that connects to this node. Is there a network managment tool that does this for me?

2 more related questions that I have are:

1. Can a cisco catalyst 3524 switch  act as a DHCP server
2. Can a cisco catalyst 3524 swict block traffic on a certain port based on a threshhold traffic value.

1) no, this is a switch
2) no, this is a switch, not a router/firewall Switches work on the MAC adress to send packages to the right port, they don't care what protocol you're using.

Switch port mapper from Solarwinds does this. Or you could do it manually, get the mac address from the mac-address-table on the switch then look in your routers arp cache to determine the IP address being used.  Thats all Solarwinds does but of course its automated.

You can get a free 30 day download to evaluate it at www.solarwinds.net

Other 2 questions:

1.  No, I'm pretty sure it can't act as a DHCP server

2.  Yes, use storm control.

Determine the mac address of the node from the arp cache on your router.
sh arp

query the cam table on the switch for the mac address
show mac-address-table

This will give you the port# used by that mac address.

>1. Can a cisco catalyst 3524 switch  act as a DHCP server
I'm absolutely sure it can't

2. Can a cisco catalyst 3524 swict block traffic on a certain port based on a threshhold traffic value
after 11.2(8)SA
port storm-control {{action {filter | shutdown} | threshold {rising rising-number falling falling-number} | trap}}
