Convergence time of multicast routing protocols?

Hi!

I'm Min-ho in korea and I have a question about convergence time.

I have designed the network(see the below image) and each node operates multicast server(source) & client.

I think that multicast routing protocol is used in this configuration like PIM-SM/DM, MOSPF, DVMRP...

Iknow that most of cisco L3 switches support this protocols.

Q1.

In case of  the physical link, switch ports or L3 switch(black) is failed, each protocol is carring out re-routing.(convergence)

How long dose it takes?(what's convergence time?) and the (convergence) time includes error detection time?

Q2.

If all switch operate L2, RSTP is used to prevent loop. I know RSTP has sub-second convergnece time.

RSTP convergence time includes error detection time?

I think not included.

please your reply & opinion.

thanks and sorry for short english.
