Switch Questions

May 12th, 2015 in SWITCH 300-115 Go to comments

Question 1


The command “mac address-table aging-time 180” specifies the time before an entry ages out and is discarded from the MAC address table. The default is 300 seconds. Entering the value 0 disables the MAC aging.

Question 2

Question 3


The switch learns which port the host is attaching by examining the source MAC address in frames received on a port. For example switch receives a frame with source MAC of 0000.0000.aaaa (abbreviated as “aaaa”) on port Fa0/1, it populates its MAC address-table with an entry like this “host aaaa on Fa0/1”. If the switch receives a frame with the same “aaaa” MAC from Fa0/2 then there will be a flap and the switch will log something like this:

%MAC_MOVE-SP-4-NOTIF: Host 0000.0000.aaaa in vlan 1 is flapping between port 0/1 and port 0/2

This flapping phenomenon may be the result of a Layer loop somewhere in your network, especially when STP is disabled for some reasons.

If you don’t want to see this message then issue the “no mac-address-table notification mac-move” or place a static entry with the “mac-address-table static 000.0000.aaaa vlan 1 interface fa0/1″on the switch. The command “mac-address-table notification mac-move” is disabled by default on 6500 & 7600 series but enabled by default on other series.

Question 4


Storm control prevents traffic on a LAN from being disrupted by a broadcast, multicast, or unicast storm on one of the physical interfaces. A LAN storm occurs when packets flood the LAN, creating excessive traffic and degrading network performance. Errors in the protocol-stack implementation, mistakes in network configurations, or users issuing a denial-of-service attack can cause a storm.
Storm control (or traffic suppression) monitors packets passing from an interface to the switching bus and determines if the packet is unicast, multicast, or broadcast. The switch counts the number of packets of a specified type received within the 1-second time interval and compares the measurement with a predefined suppression-level threshold.

Storm control uses one of these methods to measure traffic activity:
+ Bandwidth as a percentage of the total available bandwidth of the port that can be used by the broadcast, multicast, or unicast traffic
+ Traffic rate in packets per second at which broadcast, multicast, or unicast packets are received
+ Traffic rate in bits per second at which broadcast, multicast, or unicast packets are received

With each method, the port blocks traffic when the rising threshold is reached. The port remains blocked until the traffic rate drops below the falling threshold (if one is specified) and then resumes normal forwarding. If the falling suppression level is not specified, the switch blocks all traffic until the traffic rate drops below the rising suppression level. In general, the higher the level, the less effective the protection against broadcast storms.

The command “storm-control broadcast level 75 65” limits the broadcast traffic up to 75% of the bandwidth (75% is called the rising threshold). The port will start forwarding broadcast traffic again when it drops below 65% of the bandwidth (65% is called the falling threshold).

Note: If you don’t configure the falling threshold, it will use the same value of the rising threshold.

Question 5


By using the “storm-control broadcast level [falling-threshold]” we can limit the broadcast traffic on the switch.

Question 6


The command “show mac address-table” displays the MAC address table along with the port associated for the switch. The ‘show mac address-table address ” gives a more specific view of a specific MAC address.

Question 7

Question 8


The command “storm-control action {shutdown | trap} ” specifies the action to be taken when a storm is detected. The default is to filter out the traffic and not to send traps.
+ Select the shutdown keyword to error-disable the port during a storm.
+ Select the trap keyword to generate an SNMP trap when a storm is detected.

    My exam was taken on 3/25/2016 as I ended up with a humiliating 643/1000. All my study material was from the CiscoPress eBook (300-115), CBT Nuggets, VCE dumps (191q) and Certprep. I put in 6-7 study hours a day for nearly a month to pass 300-115 with extreme confidence, but I was shot down when I was roasted by the exam. The latest dumps from this site only covered about 25% of the questions given, but all the Lab Sim simulation were correct as I had LACP with STP / HRSP / AAA. I was easily able to finish the lab sims on the exam with success but fell way short when it came the questions with educated guesses. I would like to know if anyone can help me out to receive the latest dumps soon. Thanks. c_brotha @ yahoo.com

    @ all
    I took the exam and I passed with a score of 937 out of 1000.
    Study dumps from EnsurePass.Here is the question from it.

    The network monitoring application alerts a network engineer of a client PC that is acting as a rogue DHCP server. Which two commands help trace this PC when the MAC address is known? (Choose two.)
    A. switch# show mac address-table
    B. switch# show port-security
    C. switch# show ip verify source
    D. switch# show ip arp inspection
    E. switch# show mac address-table address
    Correct Answer: AE
    These two commands will show the MAC address table, including the switch port that the particular host is using. Here is an example output:
    Switch>show mac-address-table

    Dynamic Addresses Count: 9
    Secure Addresses (User-defined) Count: 0
    Static Addresses (User-defined) Count: 0
    System Self Addresses Count: 41
    Total MAC addresses: 50
    Non-static Address Table:
    Destination Address Address Type VLAN Destination Port
    ——————- ———— —- ——————–
    0010.0de0.e289 Dynamic 1 FastEthernet0/1
    0010.7b00.1540 Dynamic 2 FastEthernet0/5
    0010.7b00.1545 Dynamic 2 FastEthernet0/5

    However, I highly suggest to read the Cisco Press and watch CBT nuggets tutorials.
    Thanks for sharing your experienced here and thanks Certprepare.

    I spent alot of time studying other than list of questions from this site . That was a somewhat waste of time as Surprisingly all the questions were the same as I downloaded from a link in comments at certprepare. I should have studied just certprepare with fulll questions and answers. I was lucky the link was there and remembered the cerprepare q and a.
    But didnt know labs AAA and STP Lacp inside and out. Drag and drop was cdp and lldp features. and hsrp sim Find the link or pay and get questions as they are same as tst
