Create Multicast Routing Profiles

Use multicast routing profiles for PIM Interface Timers and IGMP Interface Queries for an Advanced Routing Engine.
On an Advanced Routing Engine, create the following routing profiles to apply to an IPv4 multicast configuration:
  • Multicast IPv4 PIM Interface Timer Profiles
    —Use on the PIM General tab (Interface General Timer) and on the PIM Interfaces tab to override the Interface General Timer.
  • Multicast IPv4 IGMP Interface Query Profiles
    —Use on the IGMP tab for a Dynamic IGMP interface.
  1. Create a multicast IPv4 PIM Interface Timer profile.
    1. Select
      Network
      Routing
      Routing Profiles
      Multicast
      .
    2. Add
      a
      Multicast IPv4 PIM Interface Timer Profile
      by
      Name
      . (maximum of 63 characters). The name must start with an alphanumeric character, underscore (_), or hyphen (-), and can contain a combination of alphanumeric characters, underscore, or hyphen. No dot (.) or space is allowed.
    3. Specify the
      Assert Interval
      —Number of seconds between PIM Assert messages that the logical router sends to other PIM routers on the multiaccess network when they are electing a PIM forwarder; range is 0 to 65,534; default is 177.
    4. Specify the
      Hello Interval
      —Number of seconds between PIM Hello messages that the logical router sends to its PIM neighbors from each interface in the interface group; range is 1 to 180; default is 30.
    5. Specify the
      Join Prune Interval
      —Number of seconds between PIM Join messages (and between PIM Prune messages) that the logical router sends upstream toward a multicast source; range is 60 to 600; default is 60.
    6. Click
      OK
      .
  2. Create a multicast IPv4 IGMP Interface Query profile.
    1. Select
      Network
      Routing
      Routing Profiles
      Multicast
      .
    2. Add
      a
      Multicast IPv4 IGMP Interface Query Profile
      by
      Name
      (maximum of 63 characters). The name must start with an alphanumeric character, underscore (_), or hyphen (-), and can contain a combination of alphanumeric characters, underscore, or hyphen. No dot (.) or space is allowed.
    3. Specify the
      Max Query Response Time
      —maximum number of seconds allowed for a receiver to respond to an IGMP membership Query message before the logical router determines that the receiver no longer wants to receive multicast packets for the group; range is 1 to 25; default is 10.
    4. Specify the
      Query Interval
      —number of seconds between IGMP membership Query messages that the logical router sends to a receiver to determine whether the receiver still wants to receive the multicast packets for a group; range is 1 to 1,800; default is 125.
    5. Specify the
      Last Member Query Interval
      —number of seconds allowed for a receiver to respond to a Group-Specific Query that the logical router sends after a receiver sends a Leave Group message; range is 1 to 25; default is 1.
    6. If you enable
      leave group immediately when a leave message is received
      , when there is only one member in a multicast group and the logical router receives an IGMP Leave message for that group, this setting causes the logical router to remove that group and outgoing interface from the multicast routing information base (mRIB) and multicast forwarding information base (mFIB) immediately, rather than waiting for the Last Member Query Interval to expire. Enabling this setting saves network resources. (Default is disabled.)
