Subject: [unisog] rendezvous storm?

If this has already been covered to death, please give me a hint where
to find it in the archives.

We sometimes get wiped out by a Windows machine on our network spewing
large numbers of packets per second aimed at multicast address using UDP 5353. I can see such traffic as part of the
background noise which seems to be about media sharing .... but once it
a while it rises to apparently unhealthy heights, as it seems to be
co-incident with our router spiking at 100% CPU and ceasing to forward
traffic for a while. 

Can anyone point us to more knowledge on this subject?
