Usage Guidelines

Cache timeout is the time after which the cache entries are deleted if traffic is not received for that duration. This applies only for snooping and MVR caches and does not apply for PIM caches.

The range is 90 to 100000 seconds. You can use the option none if you do not want the cache entry to be deleted. If none is configured, the cache entries could be deleted only using the following command:

clear igmp snooping


The following example configures the IPv6 multicast cache timeout to 400 seconds.

configure mcast ipv6 cache timeout 400

The following command clears he IPv6 multicast cache timeout.

configure mcast ipv6 cache timeout none
