Description

This command configures the IPv6 MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. (Multi-listener discovery) parameters.

Syntax

Parameter

Description

max-members-per-group

Configure maximum members per group (1-65535). The default value is 300.

query-interval

Specify the time interval in seconds (1-65535) between general queries. The default value is 125 seconds.

By varying this value, you can tune the number of MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. messages on the link; larger values cause MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. queries to be sent less often.

query-response-interval

Specify the maximum response delay in deciseconds (1/10 seconds) that can be inserted into the periodic general queries. The default value is 100 deciseconds.

By varying this value, you can tune the burstiness of MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. messages on the link; larger values make the traffic less bursty, as node responses are spread out over a larger interval.

The number of seconds represented by this value must be less than the query interval.

robustness-variable

Specify a value between 2 to 10. The default value is 2. The robustness variable allows you to tune for the expected packet loss on a link. If a link is expected to be lossy, you can increase this value.

You must not configure the robustness variable as 0 or 1.

ssm-range

Specify the source specific multicast IPv6 range. This variable allows you to configure a valid multicast IPv6 address range for which SSM semantics needs to be applied. The default IPv6 SSM address range is FF3X::4000:1 – FF3X::FFFF:FFFF.

Usage Guidelines

You can modify the default values of the MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. parameters for IPv6 MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. snooping. You must enable IPv6 MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. snooping for these values to take effect. For more information on enabling IPv6 MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. snooping, see interface vlan.

Example

The following command configures the query interval of 200 seconds for IPv6 MLDMulticast Listener Discovery. A component of the IPv6 suite. It is used by IPv6 routers for discovering multicast listeners on a directly attached link. snooping:

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config) #ipv6 mld

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config-mld) # query-interval 200
