Multicast:Understanding output from mtrace

Folks, application folks in my company complain that multicast traffic for a group 239.254.13.31 does not work. They say that traffic for group 239.254.13.32 works OK. I do mtrace from Layer 3 switch and the difference I notice is that the last path (-4 10.12.17.3) is not listed for the 239.254.13.31. Can someone confirm what I can infer from this mtrace output?

switchL3#mtrace 10.12.17.3 10.12.49.15 239.254.13.32

Type escape sequence to abort.

Mtrace from 10.12.17.3 to 10.12.49.15 via group 239.254.13.32

From source (?) to destination (?)

Querying full reverse path...

0 10.12.49.15

-1 10.12.49.60 PIM [10.12.17.0/26]

-2 10.12.60.105 PIM [10.12.17.0/26]

-3 10.12.60.61 PIM [10.12.17.0/26]

-4 10.12.17.3

switchL3#mtrace 10.12.17.3 10.12.49.15 239.254.13.31

Type escape sequence to abort.

Option 2 allows you to map different source|group pairs thus it is more scalable. With that said, to keep things simple, go with Option 1 for your current setup.

10.12.17.3 is not sending to 239.254.13.31 multicast group.

10.12.17.3 is only sending to 239.254.13.32.

Re: Multicast:Understanding output from mtrace

Great. On each of those PIM hops listed, I see the entry:

!------

ip igmp ssm-map static ssm-source1 10.12.17.3

!

ip access-list standard ssm-source1

permit 239.254.13.32

!-----

I see I have two options to accomodate this. Do you see any need or advantage in doing Option 2) below?

Option 1)

ip access-list standard ssm-source1

permit 239.254.13.31

or

Option 2)

ip igmp ssm-map static ssm-source2 10.12.17.3

!

ip access-list standard ssm-source2

permit 239.254.13.31
