Disabling PIM SM Snooping Globally

If PIM SM snooping has been enabled, you can disable it globally. One scenario where PIM SM snooping does not work, is on a PIM dense mode router which does not send join messages. When disabling PIM SM, you may also want to disable IP multicast traffic reduction.

  1. Enter global configuration mode.
    device# configure terminal
  2. To disable PIM sparse snooping globally, enter the no ip pimsm-snooping command.
    device(config)# no ip pimsm-snooping
  3. If you also want to disable IP multicast traffic reduction, enter the no ip multicast command.
    device(config)# no ip multicast
