Multicast messages

Hello all,

After enabling IGMP on a switch I started to receive some messages. One of them is this one : %MCAST-6-DELGDA

I checked on CCO the meaning of this one and I found out that the reason of this one is a multicast entry being deleted.

I think that such messages may be ignored. Am I right?

Does someone has the same kind of messages?

Best regards.

Re: Multicast messages

Given the explanation in Output Interpreter (which you found yourself):

%MCAST-6-DELGDA (x1): Deleting a GDA [chars] in vlan [dec]

Explanation: This message indicates that a multicast entry in the given

VLAN is being deleted because an IGMP leave from the last host for this

GDA was received.

[chars] is the group destination address and vlan [dec] is the VLAN number.

it's safe to ignore this message.

It just tells you that the last member of a given multicast group left the group.

On the humorous side Output Interpreter, for some absurd reason states that

"Recommended Action: Contact your technical support representative."

which is hardly necessary.

Re: Multicast messages

Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

I also don't understand why they mentioned to contact the technical support.

Regards.
