Muticast question:Is "RP" detected via autorp?

Hi, can you clarify this;when I do on my L3 switch:

'show ip pim autorp' I do not see any rp listed.

Then if I do 'show ip pim rp' I see rp's listed.

On the respective L3 switch, I do not see any rp listed manually.

Question:How are RP's being detected in this case? If it is via 'autoRP', why the command show ip pim autorp does not show any rp listed then?

switch1#show ip pim bsr-router

PIMv2 Bootstrap information

switch1#show ip pim rp

Group: 239.254.3.11 **

Group: 239.254.3.3

Group: 239.254.34.4

Group: 239.254.3.23

Group: 239.254.34.3

** note:edited numbers.

switch1#show ip pim autorp

AutoRP Information:

AutoRP is enabled.

PIM AutoRP Statistics: Sent/Received

RP Announce: 0/0, RP Discovery: 0/0

switch1#

This is the configuration on the L3 switches. I do not see any mention of manual RP configuration.

Re: Muticast question:Is "RP" detected via autorp?

That's correct. Pay close attention to the Flags on the right.

'sTI' means the Mcast groups are running on SSM

You also notice, there aren't any *,G joins as the receivers are sending S,G joins since they know which source they want to receive the Mcast data from.

Re: Muticast question:Is "RP" detected via autorp?

Based on the portion of your config, you are using SSM (Source Specific Multicast), thus the sources and receivers know where to go hence no need for RP.

If you post the 'show ip mroute' more information regarding the groups can be illustrated.

Re: Muticast question:Is "RP" detected via autorp?

Try the command 'show ip pim rp mapping'. This should show you what RP's are handling what multicast groups and how this mapping was learned - i.e. static config, auto-rp or bsr.

Re: Muticast question:Is "RP" detected via autorp?

Here it is. I noticed that 'show ip pim rp map' did not list anything. So it means there are no RP's, since we are using static sm, correct?
