Error Message    %BCAST-4-Q_ADD_FAILED: Broadcast/Multicast queue add failed. 

Explanation    The system failed to add a message to the broadcast/multicast message queue because the queue might already be full. This issue might occur due to a host on the DS flooding with too many broadcast ARP requests for a wireless client in a short span of time. Alternatively, the issue might occur due to too many CDP packets over a short span of time. In both scenarios, the packets are dropped until the number of outstanding messages in the queue becomes less than 512. There is no other performance impact. If the message is seen repeatedly, it means some host in the network is flooding with too many broadcast ARP requests or CDP packets.
