Broadcast issue


Our network has been facing some Broadcast issues originating at the Brocade MLX 16 device. i have attached a ethereal capture for the same.

Another issue is that the Brocade MLX engine sometimes reboots automatically, not regularly, hasnt happened for a month now, but its an issue we have been facing for some time. What could be the possible issue and how do i troubleshoot..

Any help would be appreciated.

There are two files in the rar file inside the zip file.

What frame no should we be looking at?  A quick look show a lot of ARP on the first file file.  Bit more infomration please.
