enable pim iproute sharing

enable pim {ipv4 | ipv6} iproute sharing


Enables the PIM ECMP feature.

Syntax Description

iproute IP Route.
sharing Equal Cost Multipath Routing.



Usage Guidelines

Use this feature to allow downstream PIM router to choose multiple ECMP path to source via hash from one of the following selections without affecting the existing unicast routing algorithm:
  • Source
  • Group
  • Source-Group
  • Source-Group-Next-Hop

This feature does load splitting, not load balancing, and operates on a per (S, G) and (*;G) basis, splitting the load onto the available equal cost paths by hashing according to the selection criteria defined by the user.

Make sure that IP route sharing is also enabled using enable iproute {ipv4| ipv6} sharing.


The following command enables the PIM ECMP feature:

enable pim ipv4 iproute sharing


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 15.3.2.
