what rate-limit statistics really mean
« on: November 18, 2020, 05:59:31 PM »
Hi Folks,
Ten years ago I had a great pleasure to be the moderator on this forums. Having lot's of other activities  I started to neglect my duties here. But karma always comes:). Still in Networking business I have to figure out some problem with old Nortel switches. Trying to find an issue I looked at the rate-limit statistics. Even if there is no limit on port I can see some figures. I think they show multicast/broadcast utilization but...

a) are they saying how much broadcast/multicast is received on the port

b) are they saying how much bandwidth left not used by broadcast/multicast

It strange but I tend to option b).

Looking and Nortel/Avaya doc does not help. That's only a brief statements about that. Any ideas ?

Cherrs,
Artur Gmaj

Hi,
I think I know the answer to my own question. Those statistics seem to show broadcast/multicast percentage according to all traffic (but not interface bandwidth). So if there is a little unicast traffic the numbers rise to 99% or so on.

Rgrds,
