Description (partial)

The replication ASIC responsible for SPAN, OTV encapsulation, and multicast replication stops replicating all traffic.  As a result, each of the above features will also fail.  This is particular to the SPAN/multicast replication pipeline so customer in an OTV environment will see that multicast traffic (including link-local multicast, along with broadcast traffic are not forwarded across the overlay.

This has been observed in OTV environment with a high rate of traffic egressing the OTV join-interface with ERSPAN configured to span the join-interface, which is very rare.
