Configures the switch to temporarily enable multicast flooding when an EAPS topology change occurs.
|on||Enables the multicast temporary-flooding feature.|
|off||Disables the multicast temporary-flooding feature.|
When this feature is set to on and an EAPS topology change occurs, the switch temporarily enables multicast flooding to all protected VLANs for the duration specified by the following command:configure eaps multicast temporary-flooding duration
If you change the configuration to off, topology changes that occur after this command do not result in temporary flooding. For example, if you change the configuration to off while flooding is in progress for a protected VLAN or set of protected VLANs (due to an EAPS topology change), the flooding continues for the configured duration period. New topology changes on the protected VLANs do not cause flooding.
When this feature is set to off and an EAPS topology change occurs, the switch does not enable flooding to all protected VLANS during the topology transition. The default switch response for multicast traffic during an EAPS topology change is that defined by the following command:configure eaps multicast send-igmp-query
You can also use the following command to configure the switch response for multicast traffic during an EAPS topology change:configure eaps multicast add-ring-ports
The following command enables the temporary-flooding feature:
configure eaps multicast temporary-flooding on
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.2.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
