IGMP Snooping VLAN Status Fields

Field Description
VLAN ID The VLAN associated with the rest of the data in the row. When enabling IGMP snooping on a VLAN, use this menu to select the desired VLAN. Only VLANs that have been configured on the system and are not already enabled for IGMP snooping appear in the menu. When modifying IGMP snooping settings, this field identifies the VLAN that is being configured.
Admin Mode The administrative mode of IGMP snooping on the VLAN. IGMP snooping must be enabled globally and on an VLAN for the VLAN to be able to snoop IGMP packets to determine which network segments should receive multicast packets directed to the group address.
Fast Leave Admin Mode The administrative mode of Fast Leave on the VLAN. If Fast Leave is enabled, the VLAN can be immediately removed from the Layer 2 forwarding table entry upon receiving an IGMP leave message for a multicast group without first sending out MAC-based general queries.
Group Membership Interval (Seconds) The number of seconds the VLAN should to wait for a report for a particular group on the VLAN before the IGMP snooping feature deletes the VLAN from the group.
Max Response Time (Seconds) The number of seconds the VLAN should wait after sending a query if does not receive a report for a particular group. The specified value should be less than the Group Membership Interval.
Multicast Router Expiration Time (Seconds) The number of seconds the VLAN should wait to receive a query before it is removed from the list of VLANs with multicast routers attached.
Report Suppression Mode The IGMPv1 and IGMPv2 report suppression mode. The device uses IGMP report suppression to limit the membership report traffic sent to multicast-capable routers. When this mode is enabled, the device does not send duplicate reports to the multicast router. Note that this mode is supported only when the multicast query has IGMPv1 and IGMPv2 reports. This feature is not supported when the query includes IGMPv3 reports. The options are as follows:
  • Enabled: Only the first IGMP report from all hosts for a group IGMP report is forwarded to the multicast routers.
  • Disabled: The device forwards all IGMP reports from all hosts in a multicast group to the multicast routers.
