Configuring OpMan to alert which port starts a broadcast storm.
I'm a Net Admin at a company with 8x Juniper closet switches, and 27x Juniper compact switches that my team and I manage on a daily basis. We use OpMan in our environment for most of our networked infrastructure.
Recently, we've been having a specific switch in a closet stack randomly stall as though it's experiencing a typical broadcast storm - all ports send/receiving packets at 3.5mil/sec. We've further modified the storm-control settings to briefly disable whichever port starts going nuts first which is nice, but if this fixed the stalling of said switch, then we applied a nice band-aid to a deeper wound.
I could of course search the logs for which port was the problem, but we all know csv logs can become quite cumbersome to filter through.
I'd like to configure an SNMP trap on the stack to tell us in the department when a port is spamming broadcast packets so I can track it down in person and remove it from our network, but I'm kind of a novice in OpMan.
