I am trying to ghostcast a group of PC's over a layer 3 network. I am able to reach them via multicast but it seems like it's taking too long to get them all done. For 8 it took about an hour to do. I am using PIM Sparse Mode and pointing everything to an RP that is the vlan interface's ip address that the ghost cast server is on (as it is the only thing currently capable of multicast currently being used on the network). Here's the path it follows..
Gig connected GhostCast Server on a 6513 with a 720 sup engine.
10 Gig Layer 3 Fiber connection to another 6513 to the PC's which are 100 meg connected
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to speed this up? Is Sparse-Dense mode a possibility?
