show ipv6 pim6 pending


show ipv6 pim6 pending [<GROUP-ADDR>] 
     [all-vrfs | vrf <VRF-NAME>] [vsx-peer]


Shows the pending joins on a PIM router. Optionally you can specify display information by VRF. If no options are specified, it shows information for the default VRF.

Use this command to determine what flows are being requested on the PIM network. If data availability for a flow is expected, and a join for the flow is pending, the troubleshooting search moves to the source of that flow, since the routers are verified to be seeing the request for data.
