I am seeing a ton of multicasts on my server interface. These multicasts come from HSRP peers on the same vlan.
My question is, is it possible to filter out these multicasts on the ports connected to servers, becasue they dont really care to hear them and its extra processing on the NICs.
I enabled "ip igmp snooping" on the switch but i can still see the multicasts.
Is there anything I can do, or what is the best practice?
IGMP snooping does not work with HSRP, simply because it cannot work with reserved addresses(e.g.126.96.36.199/01-00-5e-00-00-02)
