  • Patent number: 9807013
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions for automatically filtering network broadcast traffic are described. For example, network broadcast traffic can be automatically filtered by turning broadcast filtering on and off (e.g., as a continuous strobe pattern that alternates enabling and disabling of broadcast filtering). For example, a computing device (e.g., via a network interface or management controller of the computing device) can automatically enable network broadcast traffic filtering during a first time period (e.g., a four second time period) and disable network broadcast traffic filtering during a second time period (e.g., a one second time period). A computing device can also automatically enable and disable network broadcast traffic filtering according to an on-off pattern (e.g., based on various criteria, such as network queue size, broadcast traffic volume, etc.).
