Usage Guidelines

Use the per-vlan option when the number of VLANs configured on the switch is lower than half of the maximum numbers listed in Maximum Number of VLANs Supported by per-VLAN IGMP Snooping Filters. This option conserves usage of the hardware Layer 3 multicast forwarding table.

When the number of configured VLANs is larger than half of the maximum values listed in Maximum Number of VLANs Supported by per-VLAN IGMP Snooping Filters, select the per-port option. Each VLAN requires additional interface hardware ACL resources. The per-port option conserves usage of the interface hardware ACL resources.

To display the MLD snooping filters configuration, use the show mld snooping command.


The following command configures the switch to install the per-VLAN MLD snooping filters:

configure mld snooping filters per-vlan
