The Adapter supports optional full and incremental discovery of the following IP multicast-related entities:
Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP)
Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM)
The Multicast Manager diagnoses connectivity failures for the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP). The Multicast Manager works with either the IP Availability Manager or the imported information for Alcatel-Lucent devices from the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS server. The Multicast Manager discovers and monitors network devices running multicast services, diagnoses multicast-related failures, and reports alarms received and the results of its analysis to the Global Manager. The Multicast Manager also detects common configuration problems that occur when deploying and maintaining the multicast infrastructure.
