Cisco 2821 high CPU with Multicast

I have two Cisco 2821 that I tried to use for MCAST but once MCAST traffic is enabled, the CPU goes to 98% and the HSRP process starts to flip flop between both routers. Could the 2821 routers be used for MCAST?

on your interfaces do you have ip mroute-cache? if not try adding that - also make sure CEF is enabled.

yes, I do.

what is the bandwidth of the stream?

Re: Cisco 2821 high CPU with Multicast

the problem seems to be with over subscriptions. We are dropping a significant number of packets once we turn on MCAST.

so all you are doing is configuring pim? No multicast flows? If you have a flow how much is the pps total? The reason i ask is i have destroyed a 7200-npe-g1 with a 1-10mb flow of multicast.

If I understand your question. Yes, I only have ip pim rp address and ip pim sparse-mode configured on the device.

I resolved the problem. The routers' CPU were clearly not able to handle multicast so I redesign the network to use the 3750G switches.
