Join/leave multicast on 'bladeA' briefly disrupts traffic on 'bladeB'

hi all

 

i have a working UCS setup with multiple blade server chassis that we use for video processing tests.

We have a range of video test feeds available on the network (all multicast in SSM range) that all servers can join.  No problem there, works just fine.

 

However, we recently discovered that when you have 2 blades that both join the same multicast feed, they can influence each other :

On serverA and B we join (IGMP) the same test feed > both get the video feed > OK

Now when we leave the multicast stream on serverA, we get a short interruption of that feed on serverB

Both servers have a dedicated mgmt vnic an dedicated video vnic.  The video vnics on A and B both connect to vlan 1601.

 

It almost seems like the join on the video vlan interface is removed (even though serverB is still joined to the stream) and ten immediately re-joined.  Only a small number of packets are lost, but in our application this is a showstopper.

 

Any ideas ?

Re: Join/leave multicast on 'bladeA' briefly disrupts traffic on 'bladeB'

Wonder if the UCSM/FIs have fast leave or explicit-tracking enabled...

What firmware level are you on?

From FI nxos:

FI-A(nxos)#show run all | in igmp

Hmm, seems like those settings are optimal to avoid the condition, that you are hitting.

You are probably going to need open an official tac case, get a FI port monitor session going for the uplinks handling that traffic (for wireshark purposes), as well as crank up the debug level on the FIs for igmp related.
