Hello,

A broadcast storm occurs when a network system is overwhelmed by continuous multicast or broadcast traffic. When different nodes are sending/broadcasting data over a network link, and the other network devices are rebroadcasting the data back to the network link in response, this will eventually cause the whole network to melt down and lead to the failure of network communication.

There are many reasons a broadcast storm occurs, including poor technology, low port rate switches and improper network configurations.

Thanks,
Hruthika.

hi,

Broadcast radiation is the accumulation of broadcast and multicast traffic on a computer network. Extreme amounts of broadcast traffic constitute a broadcast storm. A broadcast storm can consume sufficient network resources so as to render the network unable to transport normal traffic.

Thanks

A broadcast on a network that causes multiple hosts to respond by broadcasting themselves, causing the storm to grow exponentially in severity.

Hiiiiiiii

broadcast storm
A broadcast storm is the situation in which messages broadcast on a network cause multiple hosts to respond simultaneously by broadcasting their own messages, which, in turn, prompts further messages to be broadcast, and so on.

thankz
