Packet Dropped

Hi Team,


Need your help.

While running global counter I can see continously packets are gettignn dropped with below error.


a609598@paf-ld6-mvs-01-01(active)> show counter global filter packet-filter yes delta yes severity drop

Global counters:
Elapsed time since last sampling: 9.310 seconds

name                                   value     rate severity  category  aspect    description
flow_fwd_l3_bcast_drop                     2        0 drop      flow      forward   Packets dropped: unhandled IP broadcast
Total counters shown: 1


If someone can please let me know what does this mean and how to resolve it. BIT URGENT.


Any leads would be appreciated.
