How managed switches handle Broadcast Multicast and Unicast?
An application published broadcast message to a network, and caused network switch to drop packet. I have been told this is a Broadcast Storm.
I'd like to understand
On a typical managed switch (1Gb Ethernet/10Gb Ethernet),
a) how many broadcast message can it handle, without causing a broadcast storm?
b) what is the bandwidth and latency characteristics when a switch is handling broadcast messages, under low/median/high load?
