hi! we r currently running multicast with pim dense mode enabled in all the 6509 vlan interfaces. i noticed that, when we are doing clonning (multicast) for the PCs using ghost, the traffic spike(for the period of cloning...eg 1 hr) of about 50mbps are seen in almost all the edge sw uplink to the 6509 core sw. Is that normal? Is pim dense mode advisable to be used in a LAN environment?
do i need to turn on RP even if i'm using pim dense mode? it seems that i didn't hv any RP configured in my 6509.
If ii would to use pim sparse mode instead, what would be the configuration/command required?
