Assume 3 switches connected in a ring topology forming a loop. If STP is disabled, a single broadcast packet is going to create a broadcast storm.
If i assume a broadcast packet size to be 100bytes and all the links to be 100Mbytes per sec, how can i quantify/calculate how much of the bandwidth is being utilized because of this packet storm? To avoid complications lets assume there are no other traffic. Just a single broadcast packet that got in and the switches.
edit:i do not necessaryily need to measure it in the network. I was looking at an equation that can estimate it based on the link speed, transmission delay etc
