Hi Everyone,
This may not be covered by my ccent book: What is a frame storm? Is it any different than a loop? Should STP control storms?

Thanks

    Flooding is when there's no entry for the destination MAC in the CAM table. Loops is when each switch receives and rebroadcasts the frame, this is where STP comes in.
