MTU error message

Unanswered Question

I have a CAT6509 with MPLS.. two redundant MSFC2 blades. Whenever I go in to configure one of the MSFC's I get the message:

%MROUTE-4-MTU_MISMATCH : WARNING: With IP multicast enabled, interfaces which transmit traffic from larger to smaller MTU interfaces may not be hardware switched due to fragmentation. A degradation in performance may occur.

According to Cisco:

Explanation This warning message provides information about transmitting traffic from larger to smaller MTU interfaces.

Recommended Action Set MTU values on all interfaces to be identical to avoid fragmentation.

I am not sure what to do about this because I do not see any specific MTU settings. Can someone help me with this?

you need to check the mroute table.

Check the oil list.Foreach oil check the MTU with "shwo ip int " command.That should give a clue to you.
