IGMP Querier IP

You can configure an IGMP querier IP address for a VLAN or as a global IGMP querier. The IGMP querier sends IGMP General Query messages over the network.

If you do not specify a querier IP address, then Netvisor ONE uses as the default value. There can be a unique querier IP for each VLAN, or you can configure the same Querier IP address for all the VLANs participating in IGMP snooping. The Querier IP address should have a local scope, and every switch should have a unique Querier IP address. 

With a valid source IP address on IGMP Query packets, Netvisor ONE adds the VLAN receiving the Query to an IGMP Snoop switch list and reflects in the output, and the IGMP queries sent to the peer switch as well. This event solicits a report from the hosts listening on the peer switch. 

There are features and functions used in UNUM Manager and UNUM Analytics that are common throughout the user interface (UI). Please refer to the Common Functions section for more information on the use of these functions and features.
