Layer 3 switching running PIM. Should I also run IGMP querier snooping?

In my opinion, no, but I want to hear from the experts. My layer 3 switch is a Cisco 3750.

 

If I'm running PIM, by default, will the layer 3 switch send out general membership queries already?

 

AFAIK, IGMP querier snooping only sends out general membership queries if there is not a multicast router already sending general membership queries out on the same subnet.

When you enable PIM, you also enable IGMP as well.

In your case, the 3750 is running PIM because is layer-3 device. So, the switch will send out IGMP queries to address 224.0.0.1 every 60 seconds.
