RRAS Multicast Group Manager

Updated: December 16, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The Multicast Group Manager (MGM) application programming interface (API) enables developers to write multicast routing protocols that interoperate with routers running the Multicast Group Manager. When more than one multicast routing protocol is enabled on a router, the MGM coordinates operations between all routing protocols. The MGM informs each routing protocol when group membership changes occur, and when multicast data from a new source or destined to a new group is received.

 

Aspects

The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:

Name Description

RRAS MGM Audits

The Routing and Remote Access service has determined that Multicast Group Manager (MGM) audits generated an audit entry when a system event was executed successfully. These events confirm successful MGM operations.

RRAS MGM Initialization

The Multicast Group Manager (MGM) application programming interface (API) enables developers to write multicast routing protocols that interoperate with routers running the Multicast Group Manager. When more than one multicast routing protocol is enabled on a router, the MGM coordinates operations between all routing protocols. The MGM informs each routing protocol when group membership changes occur, and when multicast data from a new source or destined to a new group is received.

After MGM is initialized on the interface, group membership changes can be comunicated.

 

RRAS Routing Protocol Registration

The Multicast Group Manager (MGM) application programming interface (API) enables developers to write multicast routing protocols that interoperate with routers running the Multicast Group Manager. When more than one multicast routing protocol is enabled on a router, the MGM coordinates operations between all routing protocols. The MGM informs each routing protocol when group membership changes occur, and when multicast data from a new source or destined to a new group is received.

After the routing protocol registers with MGM, group membership changes can be communicated.
