Following table lists some key attributes for PIMHop. The Multicast Manageruses these and other attributes to detect PIMHop events.
|GroupAddress||The Multicast group IP address for this hop.||String: IpAddress, an application-widetype representing an IPv4 internet address|
|HopNumber||The sequential hop number within the path. This value represents the distance, in terms of hops, from the furthest source. The numbering of hops starts from 1.||Integer|
|IsSharedTree||Indicates whether the hop is part of a multicast shared tree (RPT, or Rendezvous Point Tree) or a source tree (SPT, or Shortest Path Tree).||Boolean: true or false|
