Hierarchy Level


Set the maximum time in milliseconds to delay sending override join messages for a multicast network that has join suppression enabled. When a router or switch sees a prune message for a join it is currently suppressing, it waits for the interval specified by the override timer before it sends an override join message.


This is a random timer with a value in milliseconds.

  • Range: 0 through maximum override value

  • Default: 2000 milliseconds
