mld-static-group-create

Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) is a Layer 3 multicast protocol used between IPv6 hosts and routers similar to how IGMP is used for IPv4. MLD snooping allows a switch to examine MLD packets and make forwarding decisions based on their content.

MLD snooping constrains IPv6 multicast traffic at Layer 2 by configuring Layer 2 LAN ports dynamically to forward IPv6 multicast traffic only to those ports that want to receive it.

The default behavior, when MLD Snooping is not configured, multicast traffic is forwarded to all the switch ports, impacting switch performance.

Syntax   mld-static-group-create [group-ip ip-address] [vlan vlan-id] [ports port-list]

group-ip ip-address

Specifies the name of the IP group for the MLD configuration.

vlan vlan-id

Specifies the ID of the VLAN for the MLD configuration.

ports port-list

Specifies the list of the ports for the MLD configuration

Defaults   None.

Access   CLI

History   Command introduced in Version 2.3.

Usage   The default behavior, when MLD Snooping is not configured, multicast traffic is forwarded to all the switch ports, impacting switch performance.

Examples  To create a multicast group memberships for the local switch, use the following command:

CLI network-admin@switch > mld-static-group-create
