Configure the SPT Switching Period

You must configure the SPT group and source thresholds before you configure the SPT switching period. The received register packets should exceed the threshold in the SPT switching period so that the receiver initiates the switching to the SPT.

  1. Set the SPT group threshold to 10 packets and the source threshold to 15 packets.
    SEFOS# configure terminal
    SEFOS(config)# set ip pim threshold spt-grp 10
    SEFOS(config)# set ip pim threshold spt-src 15
    SEFOS(config)# end
  2. Set the SPT switching period to 5 seconds.
    SEFOS# configure terminal
    SEFOS(config)# set ip pim spt-switchperiod 5
    SEFOS(config)# end
  3. Review the SPT switching period.
    SEFOS# show ipv6 pim thresholds
