Configuring the PIM Join/Prune Message Interval for IPv6

When you use the router for PIM, the router sends join/prune message to the upstream RPF neighbor. The default join/prune message interval is 60 seconds. You can configure the join/prune message interval using the ipv6 pim join-prune-interval command. The ipv6 pim join-prune-interval command in Router Configuration mode configures the join-prune interval on all the PIM interfaces on the router. To override this global setting on a particular interface, use the ipv6 pim join-prune-interval command in Interface Configuration mode.

The hold-time associated with the PIM join/prune interval messages is 3.5 times the PIM join/prune message interval.

Note: You cannot configure the PIM join/prune message interval on PIM dense mode interfaces.

Note: You can configure multicast on IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces. For information about configuring PIM on IPv4 interfaces, see Configuring PIM for IPv4 Multicast .
