Support for Multicast Multi-VRF

PIM sparse mode (PIM-SM) and PIM dense mode (PIM-DM) are supported by the Multicast Multi-VRF feature on Ruckus devices.

  • The procedure for configuring PIM within a VRF instance is described in the “Enabling PIM on the device and an interface” and the “Configuring global PIM Sparse parameters” sections.

system-max Command Changes

Several changes have been made to the system-max commands in support of Multicast Multi-VRF. The system-max pim-mcache command has been deprecated and replaced by the system max pim-hw-mcache command.

The following new runtime commands have been introduced:

  • max-mcache—The maximum number of repeated cache entries for PIM traffic being sent from the same source address and being received by the same destination address. To define this maximum for the default VRF, configure the max-mcache command in router PIM configuration mode; to define the maximum for a specific VRF, first configure the router pim vrf command.
  • ip igmp max-group-address—Configures the maximum number of IGMP addresses for the default virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) instance or for a specified VRF. The ip igmp max-group-address command replaces the system-max igmp-max-group-address command.

Show and Clear Command Support

The following show and clear commands have been updated to support the Multicast Multi-VRF feature:

  • clear ip igmp [ vrf vrf-name ] cache
  • clear ip igmp [ vrf vrf-name ] traffic
  • show ip igmp [vrf vrf-name] group
  • show ip igmp [vrf vrf-name] interface
  • show ip igmp [vrf vrf-name] settings
  • show ip igmp [vrf vrf-name] traffic
