MVR Interface Status Fields

Field Description
Interface The interface associated with the rest of the data in the row. When configuring MVR settings, this field identifies the interface(s) that are being configured.
MVR Interface Mode The administrative mode of MVR on the interface. MVR must be enabled globally and on an interface in order to listen to the Join and Report messages for the configured groups.
Type The type of interface, which can be one of the following:
  • Source: The port where multicast traffic is flowing to. It must be a member of the multicast VLAN.
  • Receiver: The port where listening host is connected to the switch. It must not be a member of the multicast VLAN.
  • None: The port is not an MVR port.
Status The active state of the interface, which can be one of the following:
  • Active: The port has link up and is in the forwarding state.
  • Inactive: The port may not have link up, not be in the forwarding state, or both.
Immediate Leave The MVR immediate leave mode on the interface. It can only be configured on the receiver ports. MVR handles IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) Leaves in Normal or Immediate leave mode. When a Leave message is received, in the normal mode a general IGMP query is sent from the switch to the receiver port, whereas in the immediate leave mode the switch is immediately reconfigured not to forward specific multicast stream to the receiver port. The immediate leave mode is used for ports where only one client may be connected.
