netif.rateLimitThreshold

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when the protocol rate threshold is reached on a network interface.

Corrective Action

Fix the faulty network configuration or incorrect setup that enables a sudden spike in broadcast packets to bring down the node. If you still want a high ARP rate threshold, use the "bootarg.arp.ratelimit.threshold" boot argument to set that threshold.

Syslog Message

High rate limit on network interface %s for broadcast protocol %s being detected: %d pkts/sec.

Parameters

ifName (STRING): Name of the network interface that reached the protocol rate threshold.
protocol (STRING): Name of the broadcast protocol that overloaded the network.
packetRate (INT): Observed incoming packet rate per second on the interface.
