Configuring the Hardware and Software Resource Limits

The following task defines the maximum number of MLD snooping mc mcache entries and the maximum number of multicast group addresses supported.

  1. Use the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
    device# configure terminal
  2. Use the system-max mld-snoop-mcache command, specifying a value, to define the maximum number of MLD snooping mcache entries.
    device(config)# system-max mld-snoop-mcache 8000
  3. Use the system-max mld-snoop-group-addr command, specifying a value, to define the maximum number of multicast group addresses supported.
    device(config)# system-max mld-snoop-group-addr 4000

The following example sets the maximum number of MLD snooping mcache entries to 8000 and the maximum number of multicast group addresses supported to 4000.

device# configure terminal
device(config)# system-max mld-snoop-mcache 8000
device(config)# system-max mld-snoop-group-addr 4000
