Can protocol packets be sent if an interface with a loop detected is blocked on an S series switches

Can protocol packets be sent if an interface with a loop detected is blocked on an S series (except the S1700) or E series switch?
For S series switches (except the S1700), the destination MAC address of LDT packets and tagged LBDT packets is all Fs. These packets cannot be sent through an interface if it is blocked. The destination MAC address of untagged LBDT packets is a BPDU MAC address. These packets can still be sent through an interface even if it is blocked.
For E series switches, the destination MAC address of tagged LBDT packets is all Fs. These packets cannot be sent through an interface if it is blocked. The destination MAC address of untagged LBDT packets is a BPDU MAC address. These packets can still be sent through an interface even if it is blocked.

Will the device management be affected if an interface with loop detected is blocked
The blocked interface does not affect device management because the ping and Telnet functions are not affected. Blocking the interface only affect Layer 2 forwarding on the interface because the blocked interface does not learn MAC addresses.

Can a box switch record logs and alarms after a loop detection-enabled interface detects a loop
A fixed switch can record alarms but not logs after a loop detection-enabled interface detects a loop. The configurations are as follows: In V100R005 and V100R006, you can run the snmp-agent trap enable feature-name ldttrap command to enable the alarm function for loop detection. If snmp-agent trap enable has been configured globally, the alarm function has been enabled. Loop detection and loopback detection have been available since V200R001. You can run the snmp-agent trap enable feature-name ldttrap command to enable the alarm function for loop detection and run the snmp-agent trap enable feature-name lbdt command to enable the alarm function for loopback detection. You can run the display trapbuffer command to view alarms.
