Question:
What is the outcome of a Layer 2 broadcast storm?

  • Routers will take over the forwarding of frames as switches become congested.
  • New traffic is discarded by the switch because it is unable to be processed.
  • CSMA/CD will cause each host to continue transmitting frames.
  • ARP broadcast requests are returned to the transmitting host.

Explanation: When the network is saturated with broadcast traffic that is looping between switches, new traffic is discarded by each switch because it is unable to be processed.
