Free CompTIA Network+ N10-008 Practice Question

An administrator has noticed that several switches within the network are experiencing higher than normal loads and excessive broadcast traffic. Upon investigation, it is observed that multicast traffic is being propagated to all ports on the switches, rather than just the ports that are members of the multicast group. What is the most likely cause of the observed multicast flooding?

  • Multicast traffic has been improperly assigned to the wrong VLAN

  • There is a rogue DHCP server on the network

  • IGMP snooping is disabled on the switches

  • Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) has been disabled on the switches
