IGMP Snooping Querier Configuration Fields

Field Description
Admin Mode The administrative mode for the IGMP snooping querier on the device. When enabled, the IGMP snooping querier sends out periodic IGMP queries that trigger IGMP report messages from the switches that want to receive IP multicast traffic. The IGMP snooping feature listens to these IGMP reports to establish appropriate forwarding.
IP Address The snooping querier address to be used as source address in periodic IGMP queries. This address is used when no IP address is configured on the VLAN on which the query is being sent.
IGMP Version The IGMP protocol version used in periodic IGMP queries.
Query Interval (Seconds) The amount of time the IGMP snooping querier on the device should wait between sending periodic IGMP queries.
Querier Expiry Interval (Seconds) The amount of time the device remains in non-querier mode after it has discovered that there is a multicast querier in the network.
