    Hello,

    my datacenter told me that my server is generating a unicast "storm" in their network and their switch is shutdowning the port

    Here is the switch log:



    7w5d: %STORM_CONTROL-2-SHUTDOWN: Storm control shut down FastEthernet0/17
    7w5d: %LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/17, changed state to administratively down
    7w5d: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/17, changed state to down
    7w5d: %STORM_CONTROL-2-SHUTDOWN: Storm control shut down FastEthernet0/17
    7w5d: %LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/17, changed state to administratively down
    7w5d: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/17, changed state to down
    7w5d: %STORM_CONTROL-2-SHUTDOWN: Storm control shut down FastEthernet0/17
    7w5d: %LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/17, changed state to administratively down
    7w5d: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/17, changed state to down
    7w5d: %STORM_CONTROL-2-SHUTDOWN: Storm control shut down FastEthernet0/17
    7w5d: %LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/17, changed state to administratively down
    7w5d: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/17, changed state to down
    7w5d: %STORM_CONTROL-2-SHUTDOWN: Storm control shut down FastEthernet0/20
    7w5d: %LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/20, changed state to administratively down
    7w5d: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/20, changed state to down



    is there anyway to stop this. I would be greatly thankful to anyone that could stop it.

    THank You
