"show ip mroute active" output possible bug?

Please can someone tell me what the output "Rate: -56 pps/104 kbps(1sec), " on group means. I don't understand the minus sign. Is this a bug?

Many thx

Re: "show ip mroute active" output possible bug?

Usually this means the packets are getting dropped for a variety of reasons. I would guess in your case its an RPF failure or you have no Outgoing Interface (OIF) for that group. Check your mroute table 'show ip mroute' and see if it has any interfaces in forwarding state.
