arrow_back What prevents the switch from responding to tracert?

Hello, everyone!

There is a funny situation going on with one of the switches. To be more precise, not one of them, but the central one.
The DELL PowerConnect 7024 switch is also a network router.

If it is pinged, everything is fine:

And if I do a trace, it doesn't respond:

Sometimes when tracing answers from it appear, but very rarely.

I have already broken my brain, I can not understand what this could be connected, especially since initially he always answered when trasert. At what point and when it could start - do not know.
Nothing unusual in the logs, the usual authorization marks.


Ask a question to tech support. it's interesting even...
Ruslan-Strannik , no. At least I did not set them up and initially everything was fine.
Incoming ICMP packets are dropped.
do you have filter rules on it?

Since ICMP is handled exclusively by CPU, sometimes devices drop extra ICMP to avoid unnecessary load. On a number of devices, the minimum allowed number of such packets is written in the code and is not configurable in any way.

I read about it, but the strange thing is that I did the tests at night, when no one was working, disconnected unnecessary ports... It didn't work.
