Protocol Independent Multicast
Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) distributes multicast data using routes gathered by other protocols. PIM Sparse Mode (PIM-SM) is designed for networks where multicast group recipients are sparsely distributed, including wide-area and inter-domain networks. These sections describe the Arista PIM implementation:
Section 37.1: Introduction provides an introduction of PIM.
Section 37.2: Overview provides an overview of PIM.
Section 37.3: Configuring PIM describes configuration tasks that implement PIM.
Section 37.4: Multicast Example provides a multicast implementation scenario.
Section 37.5: PIM Commands contains PIM command descriptions.
