Hello everyone, I am simulating a fat tree topology with ECMP. When one of my host sends an ARP request in broadcast, the packet is broadcasted through all switches which creates more and more traffic because I have no STP. My question is simple. What is the best way to get rid of these immortal packets? I thought of using something similar to a TTL header which would be decremented every time the packet hits a switch and dropped when it gets to zero however this method seems a bit too complicated to implement and I was wondering if there was a better, more simple way to do so using OVS?

Thank you in advance.
