  • Page 47: Flow Control

    Switching Flow Control Flow Control When a port becomes oversubscribed, it may begin to lose data by dropping traffic intermittently. When 802.3x flow control is enabled, a lower-speed switch is able to communicate with a higher-speed switch without losing data by requesting that the higher-speed switch refrain from sending packets. Transmis- sions are temporarily halted to prevent buffer overflows.

The HP PS1810 series switch software provides an automatic Loop Protection feature. Loop Protection may be enabled or disabled globally and on a port-by-port basis. When enabled globally, the software sends loop protection packets to a reserved layer 2 multicast destination address on all the ports on which the feature is enabled.
