Delay LAN Message Propagation

This example delays messages from VLAN 5 before sending them to the interface for 120 seconds.

  1. Enable PIM globally.
    SEFOS# configure terminal
    SEFOS(config)# set ip pim enable
  2. Enter Interface Configuration mode for the interface.
    SEFOS(config)# interface vlan 5
  3. Associate the VLAN interface with the PIM component.
    SEFOS(config-if)# ip pim componentId 1
  4. Specify how often (in seconds) the switch sends PIM messages to the interface.
    SEFOS(config-if)# ip pim query-interval 60
  5. Specify how many seconds message propagation is delayed.
    SEFOS# ip pim lan-delay 120
    SEFOS(config-if)# end
  6. Ensure that the correct interval is set.
    SEFOS# show ip pim interface detail
