Last Modified: 2016-11-27
I want to enable the Storm Constrain Feature of our switches in order to increase network stability in case of packet storms.

my interface lets me configure 3 types:
Broadcast Threshold :       Lower Limit + Upper Limit (in pps)
Multicast Threshold: Lower Limit + Upper Limit (in pps)
Unicast Threshold: Lower Limit + Upper Limit (in pps)

How can I find good values for the three types?
