1. On the device command line interface execute the "show ethernet-switching interfaces" command to review the status of interfaces.

3. Check if the storm control is in effect.

4. Review whether multiple devices are connected to the port.

5. Check if the device is not moving too frequently or rate-limiting is not exceeded.

6. Review the following article on Juniper tech support site: Ethernet Switching Feature Guide: show ethernet-switching interfaces.
