Implement and Troubleshoot IGMP Exam Essentials
- IGMPv3 adds support for source filtering, that is, the ability for a system to report interest in receiving packets from specific source addresses, or from all but specific source addresses sent to a specific multicast address. This feature is also known as Source Specific Multicast (SSM).
- IGMP filtering allows users to configure filters on a switch virtual interface (SVI), a per-port, or a per-port per-VLAN basis to control the propagation of IGMP traffic through the network.
- When you enter an IGMP filtering command, a user policy is applied to a Layer 3 SVI interface, a Layer 2 port, or a particular VLAN on a Layer 2 trunk port.
