Modifying the IGMP Join State Timeout

This section describes how to configure the join state timeout.

A downstream router periodically sends join messages to refresh the join state on the upstream router. If the join state is not refreshed before the timeout expires, the join state is removed.

By default, the join state timeout is 210 seconds. You can change this timeout to allow additional time to receive the join message. Because the messages are called join-prune messages, the name used is the join-prune-timeout statement.

To modify the timeout, include the join-prune-timeout statement:

user@host# set protocols pim join-prune-timeout 230

The join timeout value can be from 210 through 240 seconds.
