group-threshold (Protocols MLD Interface)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the threshold at which a warning message is logged for the multicast groups received on a logical interface. The threshold is a percentage of the maximum number of multicast groups allowed on a logical interface.

For example, if you configure a maximum number of 1,000 incoming multicast groups, and you configure a threshold value of 90 percent, warning messages are logged in the system log when the interface receives 900 groups.

To confirm the configured group threshold on the interface, use the show mld interface command.


By default, there is no configured threshold value.


value—Percentage of the maximum number of multicast groups allowed on the interface that starts triggering the warning. You configure a percentage of the group-limit value that starts triggering the warnings. You must explicitly configure the group-limit to configure a threshold value.
