Networking Requirements

As shown in Figure 1, Host B wants to receive multicast data from Host A (Source) through the PICA8 Switch.

Figure1. User Configuration Topology of PIM-SM








Follow the configuration roadmap below to complete the configuration on PICA8 Switch.

  1. Create the L3 VLAN interfaces.
  2. Enable multicast interface function on the L3 VLAN interfaces.
  3. Enable IGMP on the L3 VLAN interfaces.
  4. Enable PIM-SM on L3 VLAN interfaces.

Procedure

Host A (Source)

•  Add route on Host A to reach Host B.

    For example, use the following command on Linux system,

    sudo route add default gw 10.10.60.10 eth1

•  Run iPerf on Host A. 

Host B (Receiver)

•  Add route on Host B to reach Host A.

    For example, use the following command on Linux system,

    sudo route add default gw 10.10.61.10 eth1

•  Run iPerf on Host B. 

PICA8 Switch

Step1         Create the L3 VLAN interfaces and assign VLAN to ports.            

admin@Xorplus# set vlans vlan-id 2 l3-interface vlan2
admin@Xorplus# set vlan-interface interface vlan2 vif vlan2 address 10.10.60.10 prefix-length 24
admin@Xorplus# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/2 family ethernet-switching native-vlan-id 2
admin@Xorplus# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/2 family ethernet-switching port-mode trunk
admin@Xorplus# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/2 family ethernet-switching vlan members 3
admin@Xorplus# set vlans vlan-id 3 l3-interface vlan3
admin@Xorplus# set vlan-interface interface vlan3 vif vlan3 address 10.10.61.10 prefix-length 24
admin@Xorplus# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/3 family ethernet-switching native-vlan-id 3
admin@Xorplus# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/3 family ethernet-switching port-mode trunk
admin@Xorplus# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/3 family ethernet-switching vlan members 2

Step2         Enable IP routing.

admin@Xorplus# set ip routing enable true

Step3         Enable the VLAN interfaces as multicast interface.

admin@Xorplus# set multicast-interface interface vlan2 vif vlan2
admin@Xorplus# set multicast-interface interface vlan3 vif vlan3

Step4         Enable IGMP on the L3 VLAN interfaces.

admin@Xorplus# set protocols igmp interface vlan2 vif vlan2 disable false
admin@Xorplus# set protocols igmp interface vlan3 vif vlan3 disable false

Step5         Enable PIM on the L3 VLAN interfaces and assign the group ID.

admin@Xorplus# set protocols pimsm4 interface vlan2 vif vlan2
admin@Xorplus# set protocols pimsm4 interface vlan3 vif vlan3
admin@Xorplus# set protocols pimsm4 static-rps rp 10.10.60.10 group-prefix 226.0.0.0/8
 admin@Xorplus# set protocols pimsm4 static-rps rp 10.10.61.10 group-prefix 226.0.0.0/8

Step6         Configure the log level.

admin@Xorplus# set protocols pimsm4 traceoptions flag all disable false
admin@Xorplus# set protocols igmp traceoptions flag all disable false
admin@Xorplus# set system log-level trace

Verify the Configuration


•     Run the run show igmp interface command to check the IGMP interface configuration.     

admin@XorPlus# run show igmp interface
Interface    State    Querier         Timeout   Version   Groups 
------------  --------   ---------------      ---------    ---------   --------
vlan2        UP    10.10.60.10       None      2         3    
vlan3        UP    10.10.61.10       None      2         3

•  Run the run show pim interface command to check the PIM configuration and status.

admin@Xorplus# run show pim interface
Interface    State      Mode     V   PIMstate   Priority   DRaddr       Neighbors
----------     --------      ------      -   --------     --------   ---------------     ---------
vlan2        UP         Sparse   2   DR         1       10.10.60.10       0     
vlan3        UP         Sparse   2   DR         1       10.10.61.10       0

•  Run the run show multicast interface command to check the multicast interface configuration.

admin@XorPlus# run show multicast interface

•  Run the run show vlan-interface brief command to check the VLAN interface configuration.

admin@XorPlus# run show vlan-interface brief
