Configuring MSDP

To configure the Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP), include the msdp statement:

msdp {disable;active-source-limit {maximum number;threshold number;}data-encapsulation (disable | enable);export [ policy-names ];group group-name {... group-configuration ...}import [ policy-names ];local-address address;peer address {... peer-configuration ...}rib-group group-name;source ip-prefix</prefix-length> {active-source-limit {maximum number;threshold number;}}traceoptions {file filename <files number> <size size> <world-readable | no-world-readable>;flag flag <flag-modifier > <disable>;}group group-name {disable;export [ policy-names ];import [ policy-names ];local-address address;mode <mesh-group | standard>;peer address {... same statements as at the [edit protocols msdp peer address] hierarchy level shown just following ...}traceoptions {file filename <files number> <size size> <world-readable | no-world-readable>;flag flag <flag-modifier> <disable>;}}peer address {disable;active-source-limit {maximum number;threshold number;}authentication-key peer-key;default-peer;export [ policy-names ];import [ policy-names ];local-address address;traceoptions {file filename <files number> <size size> <world-readable | no-world-readable>;flag flag <flag-modifier> <disable>;}}}

You can include this statement at the following hierarchy levels:

  • [edit protocols]
  • [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name protocols]
  • [edit logical-systems logical-system-name protocols]
  • [edit logical-systems logical-system-name routing-instances routing-instance-name protocols]

For an overview of logical systems and a detailed example of logical system configuration, see the JUNOS Logical Systems Feature Guide.

By default, MSDP is disabled.

For a configuration example, see Example: Configuring MSDP.
