configure pim register-rate-limit-interval

configure pim {ipv4 | ipv6} register-rate-limit-interval interval


Configures the initial PIM-SM periodic register rate.

Syntax Description

ipv4 Specifies the IPv4 address family.
ipv6 Specifies the IPv6 address family.
interval Specifies an interval time in seconds. Range is 0 - 60. Default is 0.


The default interval is 0.

Usage Guidelines

Configuring a non-zero interval time can reduce the CPU load on the first hop switch, in case register stop messages are not received normally.

When a non-zero value is configured, the first hop switch sends a few register messages and then waits for a corresponding register stop from the RP for time seconds. The process is repeated until the register stop is received. This command should be used when the (S,G) tree between the first hop router and the RP is not converging quickly.

When the default value is zero in default mode, the switch sends continuous register messages until the register stop is received.


The following example configures the initial PIM register rate limit interval:

configure pim register-rate-limit-interval 2
