A typical multicast receiver expresses interest in a multicast stream by sending IGMP messages, the last hop router would then convert this IGMP to a PIM message and propagate upstream. As part of this feature when an IGMP message or PIM message is received in a VRF and there is a corresponding VRF leak configuration, the IGMP / PIM state is then leaked into the source VRF and processed only in the source VRF.
