Configuring the Switch to Send Query Messages When Network Topology Changes

Configuring the Switch to Send Query Messages When Network Topology Changes

Context

When the Layer 2 network topology changes, multicast forwarding paths may change. You can configure the switch to send MLD Query messages when the network topology changes. When multicast group members reply with MLD Report messages, the switch updates group memberships based on the Report Messages. This ensures that multicast data traffic can be quickly switched to the new forwarding path.

Procedure

  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run mld snooping send-query enable

    The switch is configured to send MLD General Query messages when network topology changes.

    By default, the switch does not send MLD General Query messages when network topology changes.

    This command enables the switch to send MLD General Query messages to update group memberships when the Layer 2 network topology changes, so that group members can continuously receive multicast data.

  3. (Optional) Run mld snooping send-query source-address ipv6-address

    The source IPv6 address of MLD General Query messages is configured.

    By default, the source IPv6 address of MLD General Query messages is a link-local address, namely, an IPv6 address starting with FE80::. If the specified address is being used by another device on the network, run this command to change the source IPv6 address.

  4. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
