Multicast hardware filter

Multicast Hardware Filter consumption can increase with PVLAN because of Filter Replication across secondary VLANs. As a result, Filters can get exhausted at a much faster rate than compared to Non PVLANs. The Multicast Application goes into an Error State when the System runs out of filter and starts Flooding Data. The following two commands are used to take it out of error state:

  • igmp reload
  • mld reload
