branch ION devices provide statistics for multicast traffic by detecting custom applications configured for multicast. You must configure custom applications based on L3/L4 characteristics for multicast traffic statistics to be displayed under
Activity
Flows
.
You can view multicast traffic under
Activity
Flows
for a custom application, only if you create the custom application for a multicast group before there is any multicast traffic for the group. If multicast traffic is already flowing for a multicast group, and you create a custom application for the multicast group, you have to restart the traffic flow to view the traffic for the custom application under
Activity
Flows
.
