Usage Guidelines

If a VLAN is specified, MLD snooping is disabled only on that VLAN, otherwise MLD snooping is disabled on all VLANs.

The with-proxy option can be used for troubleshooting purpose. It should be enabled for normal network operation.

Enabling the proxy allows the switch to suppress the duplicate join requests on a group to forward to the connected Layer 3 switch. The proxy also suppresses unnecessary MLD done messages so that they are forwarded only when the last member leaves the group.


The following example disables MLD snooping on the VLAN accounting:
