Multicast traffic UDP 239.1.1.1

Unanswered Question
Oct 10th, 2007

I have two call manager servers in the voice VLAN of 10.100.10.0/16

We have our normal servers in data VLAN of 10.10.10.0/24.

I am seeing a huge amount of UDP traffic when sniffing in promiscuous mode on one of the Data servers.

According to the Voice consultants that configured the network, this is normal and is just the MOH traffic.

But, should I be seeing this traffic on my data server is a different VLAN?

I have this problem too.

The server vlan is configured as such in the core switch where the devices are linked:

ip pim dense-mode

ip multicast ttl-threshold 2

ip route-cache flow

ip igmp join-group 230.0.0.1

ip igmp join-group 230.0.0.2

I see the same config in the workstation VLAN, but I do not see that multicast traffic on that VLAN.

also see this:

ip cef load-sharing algorithm original

ip multicast-routing

no ip igmp snooping

ip tcp path-mtu-discovery

no ip domain-lookup

ipv6 mfib hardware-switching replication-mode ingress

mls ip multicast flow-stat-timer 9

no mls flow ip

no mls flow ipv6

mls qos map cos-dscp 0 8 16 24 32 46 48 54

mls qos

no mls acl tcam share-global

mls cef error action freeze

I just talked with the Voice guy and he said multicasts are like broadcasts but can trverse layer 3.

I think as you said the network has to be configured to allow that correct?

I see nothing configured in the Voice vlan and the multicasts are on 239.1.1.1, not 230.0.0.1 or 2

What I mean by a huge amount is that using wireshark and doing a packet capture, that is all I see on the interface.

In a matter 30 seconds there are 10,000 pakets all udp sourced from the Call Manager server.

It is non stop.
