create msdp mesh-group

create msdp mesh-group mesh-group-name {vr vrname}


Creates an MSDP (Multicast Source Discovery Protocol) mesh-group.

Syntax Description

mesh-group-name Specifies the name for the MSDP mesh-group.
vrname Specifies the name of the virtual router to which this command applies. If a name is not specified, it is extracted from the current CLI context.



Usage Guidelines

A mesh-group is a group of MSDP peers with fully meshed MSDP connectivity. Create a mesh-group to:
  • Reduce SA message flooding.
  • Simplify peer-RPF flooding.

SA messages received from a peer in a mesh-group are not forwarded to other peers in the same mesh-group, which reduces SA message flooding.

A mesh group name must begin with an alphabetical character and may contain alphanumeric characters and underscores ( _ ), but it cannot contain spaces. The maximum allowed length for a name is 32 characters. For name creation guidelines and a list of reserved names, see Object Names.


The following example creates a mesh-group called "verizon:":

create msdp mesh-group verizon
