    Was reading through the maintenance guide and came across, "etherMonBroadcast Set command value to 1 to include broadcast network packets in packet capturing. Default value 0 does not capture broadcast network packets.".

    So this has me wondering if pcap's initiated from director do not capture broadcast traffic. We ran some pcaps on a switch recently to troubleshoot call control issues suspecting network congestion or a broadcast storm. We did not see a broadcast storm, but maybe this is why.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not a pcap initiated from director would reveal broadcast storms on the network?
