Excessive IGMP Snooping statistics.

For quite some time now, I have been getting the following in my logs:

Nov 21 15:40:42.390: %MCAST-SPSTBY-6-ETRACK_STATS_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: Number of entries in IGMP snooping explicit-tracking statistics has exceeded the maximum limit (32000)

Nov 21 15:40:42.399: %MCAST-SP-6-ETRACK_STATS_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: Number of entries in IGMP snooping explicit-tracking statistics has exceeded the maximum limit (32000)

Nov 21 15:40:59.614: %MCAST-SP-6-ETRACK_STATS_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: Number of entries in IGMP snooping explicit-tracking statistics has exceeded the maximum limit (32000)

Nov 21 15:40:59.611: %MCAST-SPSTBY-6-ETRACK_STATS_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: Number of entries in IGMP snooping explicit-tracking statistics has exceeded the maximum limit (32000)

This is on our core switch, a 6509E with redundant 720Sup modules and version pasted below:

Occasionally, our processor usage will also spike to 99%.  I'm not sure if that is related, but it began occuring around the same time.  What further information would the community need to point me in a direction to start rectifying this?  Thanks so much!

Excessive IGMP Snooping statistics.

Hi Sean,

Nov 21 15:40:42.390: %MCAST-SPSTBY-6-ETRACK_STATS_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: Number of entries in IGMP snooping explicit-tracking statistics has exceeded the maximum limit (32000)

The above log message is written because the number of explicit-tracking statistics entries is bounded to avoid monopolizing of system resources by IGMP/MLD snooping. The explicit-tracking statistics database maximum size is set to the same as that of explicit-tracking limit.

The statistics are split into two banks: permanent and volatile. The statistics entries will be stored permanently (volatile) until the permanent entries threshold is reached, after which the statistics will be stored temporarily up to the database maximum size. When the size of the database exceeds the permanent threshold, a group will be removed on receiving an IGMP/MLD leave. Groups can be removed whether they were installed above or below the permanent threshold. If the number of statistics entries grows beyond the maximum size of the database, then no statistics will be stored for any newly formed groups.

You can disable ip igmp snooping explicit-tracking by the following

1) Configure "no ip igmp snooping explicit-tracking"

2) Configure "ip igmp snooping limit track 0" on global.

3) After ET is disabled, please do a "clear ip igmp snooping statistics".

Re: Excessive IGMP Snooping statistics.

I haven't been able to fully test it as our traffic load nearly hits the floor around Christmas time. We are a university and all students and most staff are no longer On campus until the new year.

Excessive IGMP Snooping statistics.

Hope your multicast usage exceeds the limit, C6509 support 32K igmp groups only. But I'm wondering how many multicast receivers are attched to that switch.?
