I am noticing a few of my windows workstations sending out broadcast UDP packets to with length of 1462 and info of 889 Len=1420. These are showing as red background with white lettering.

What would cause this broadcast traffic?

Can you share a capture of the packets in question in a publicly accessible spot, e.g. CloudShark, Google Drive, Dropbox etc.?
