What is Broadcast storm protection logic in Vamp 50 and Vamp 200 series.

Dual port Ethernet interface with an integrated switch includes a function protecting the switch system from receiving too many broadcast packets. As the broadcast packets are forwarded to all ports except the source port, an excessive number of switch resources (bandwidth and available space in transmit queues) may be utilized. It can lead to performance degradation within a network. To prevent such situations, the storm protection logic can be enabled separately for each port under ETHERNET PORT group on PROTOCOL CONFIGURATION tab in Vampset. Storm protection limit parameter can   be used to adjust how many broadcast packets should be forwarded. This setting is common for both ports. 

Remember that Storm protection logic cannot be enabled on any port if Sniffer mode is already enabled.
