ip pim interface-type (for a VLAN)

Specify whether the selected interface is active or passive. You can change the state of a PIM interface after you create the interface but only if you disable PIM on the interface. An active interface accepts PIM control transmitted and received traffic. A passive interface prevents PIM control traffic from transmitting or receiving, thereby reducing the load on a system. Use this feature when a high number of PIM interfaces exist and connect to end users, not to other switches.
