Switch Questions

April 15th, 2017 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.

    I took the CCNP switch exam on the 19th of September. The SIMs were LACP, HSRP and AAAdo1t1x and there were exactly the same as posted on this website. All the objectives questions were from this website as well. I thought I would’ve scored 1000/1000 because all the answers I provided were exactly what was on this website but to my dismay I passed with only 811/1000. So please use other sources to verify your answers if possible. Cheers.

    I readed 191q and have same answers than pass4sure exam, and the same answers than certprepare, the only difference could be at the lab trunk between switch_A and switch_B, since switch B could be a 3500 or greater it needs configure encapsulation dot1q and 2960 switch does not need it, so I guess 191q version is only designed for this lab with two switchs 2960, but you need to check at the exam wich types of switchs are you facing with the ” show version ” command

    I passed the written exam by scoring 95%. Most of the questions are from the http://www.testmayor.com dumps, though the sequences of choices are changed, so it is better to understand the concepts beforehand and go through the dumps so that you will not be surprised in the exam.

    Both sites seems to be sister concern, same design… Cannot garuntee on these sites, there are no comments from people in this site. Please post some genuine websites which has clients feedback.

    If I say, it is not very tough to clear CCNA certification exam while studying by yourself. Several online documents and tutorials are available which can help you to get through the concepts and tricks. But, to a little extent it is required to have some practical knowledge in networking before attempting CCNA exam with self study. https://www.braindumps4it.com/braindumps-300-115.html
