configure msdp peer mesh-group

configure msdp peer [remoteaddr | all] mesh-group [mesh-group-name | none] {vr vrname}


This command configures an MSDP peer to become a member of a mesh-group. To remove a peer from a mesh-group, enter the none CLI keyword for the mesh-group.

Syntax Description

mesh-group-name Specifies the name of the MSDP mesh-group.
none Removes a peer from a mesh-group.
peer all Specifies all MSDP peers.
remoteaddr Specifies the IP address of the MSDP peer.
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

A mesh-group is a group of MSDP peers with fully meshed MSDP connectivity. Any SA messages received from a peer in a mesh-group are not forwarded to other peers in the same mesh-group.

Mesh-groups achieve two goals:
  • Reduce SA message flooding.
  • Simplify peer-RPF flooding.


The following example configures an MSDP peer with the IP address to become a member of a mesh-group called "intra":

configure msdp peer mesh-group intra
