clear msdp sa-cache

clear msdp sa-cache {{peer} remoteaddr | peer all} {group-address grp-addr} {vr vrname}


This command purges all SA cache entries and notifies the PIM that the SA cache is empty.

Syntax Description

peer all Specifies all MSDP peers. All matching SA cache entries from all peers are removed from the database.
grp-addr Specifies the IP address and subnet mask of the multicast group you want to clear. All SA cache entries that match the specified group address are removed from the database.
remoteaddr Specifies the IP address of the MSDP peer. All matching SA cache entries learned from the specified peer are removed from the database.
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

MSDP receives SA messages periodically. After clearing SA cache entries from the local database, MSDP relearns those entries during the next advertisement from its peer.


The following example clears SA cache records for an MSDP peer with the IP address
