Multicast Routing Table Management (M-RTM)
 
 

M-RTM provides efficient, scalable and flexible routing table support for multicast Routing Protocols. The module enables the integration of additional multicast Routing Protocols by using queues and messages.



M-RTM Highlights and Literature

EION M-RTM module demonstrates the following key features:

  • Maintains source and group routes with distribution tree information for the process of efficiently sending traffic from a source to many receivers across the network
  • Allows the propagation of its own routing table, making it convenient to have separate paths for Unicast versus Multicast datagrams
  • Maintains its own Reverse Path Forward unicast routing table taking input from policy, the unicast RTM and multicast RPAs such as DVMRP which compute their own Reverse Path Forward table
  • Provides support for dynamic learning of host membership information with IPv4 through its embedded IGMP.
  • Interfaces with the RPAs when membership changes are implemented.
  • Allows for multiprocessor usage in multiple processor architecture as messages between M-RTM and multicast RPAs will not pass pointers
  • Handles Unicast Routing Table Manager (U-RTM) changes via RPA signaling
  • Designed to allow efficient interoperation among multiple independent multicast routing domains in conformance with RFC 2715 via “alerts”
  • Provides interfaces to the forwarding Engine via the Open IP Environment Forwarding Plane Interface for forwarding cache management and statistics
