4500G Sending Broadcast ARP



We have 2 4500G switches (our only 2 in our network) which are sending out ARP traffic at an unusual rate.  They appear to be requesting ARP for devices that are not directly connected to it.  In 12 minutes we had 7000 ARP broadcasts from one of these switches alone.


They are in a pretty much default configuration, 1 SFP GBIC and STP configured.


Any help from any body would be grately appreciated.
