After enabling DoS protection, the switch will count the packets
handled by the CPU and periodically evaluate whether to send a notification and/or
create an ACL to block offending traffic.
can configure a number of the values used by DoS protection if the
default values are not appropriate for your situation.
values that you can configure are:
- interval—How often, in seconds, the switch evaluates the DoS
counter (default: 1 second)
- alert threshold—The number of packets received in an interval
that will generate an ACL (default: 4000 packets)
- notify threshold—The number of packets received in an interval
that will generate a notice (default: 3500 packets)
- ACL expiration time—The amount of time, in seconds, that the ACL
will remain in place (default: 5 seconds)
