Multicast Architecture
IP multicast is the transmission of data packets to multiple hosts through a common IP address. Arista switches support multicast transmissions through IGMP, IGMP Snooping, and PIM-SM. These sections describe the Arista multicast architecture.
Section 35.1: Overview describes the multicast capabilities of Arista switches.
Section 35.2: Multicast Architecture Description describes multicast data structures.
Section 35.3: Multicast Configuration describes multicast implementation configuration tasks.
Section 35.4: Multicast Commands contains multicast command descriptions.
