dude, the Exploding Cars are so much easier to drive than the ones from
Vendor L.  (tic)

I think it sucks that they are exploding on MY highway.

With that in mind is it time yet to talk about solutions to problems like
this from the network point of view?  Sure its easy to put up access list's
when needed but I have 100megs available to me on egress and I was trying to
push 450megs.  Is there anything protocol, vendor specific or otherwise that
will not allow rogue machines to at will take up 100% of available
resources?  I know extreme networks has the concept of Max Port utilization
on thier switches, will this help?  Suggestions?
