Hierarchy Level


Configure a limit for the number of incoming (S,G) PIM registers.


The maximum limit settings that you configure with the maximum and the family (inet | inet6) maximum statements are mutually exclusive. For example, if you configure a global maximum PIM register message limit, you cannot configure a limit at the family level for IPv4 or IPv6. If you attempt to configure a limit at both the global level and the family level, the device will not accept the configuration.


family (inet | inet6)—(Optional) Specify either IPv4 or IPv6 messages to be counted towards the configured register message limit.

  • Default: Both IPv4 and IPv6 messages are counted towards the configured register message limit.

The remaining statements are described separately.
