pim sparse-dense and dynamips

vinbuckvinbuck Member Posts: 785
Anyone had these messages before when using PIM sparse-dense on dynamips? IOS is c7200-a3jk9s-mz.124-25e.bin. I don't seem to be getting the same thing when using real gear which makes me suspect dynamips. it just bounces over and over and gives the same console message.

Cisco was my first networking love, but my "other" router is a Mikrotik...

    Although I have not really messed with GNS3 Multicast Labs, I can assure you that, GNS3 does have bugs in it and not every aspect of IOS is flawless. So it is very possible this is a bug.

    Haven't deen it in GNS3 but I used to work with multicast a lot and always saw this error if an interface flapped for any reason.

    It looks like the underlying problem is dropped packets between Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. It's dropping about 5% of the packets sent. I may try a different IOS image or router type and see what happens

    hmm interesting, what is your CPU / memory utilization? check the idle PC on your devices.

    I've got a pretty good idle cpu...sits around 3-4 percent when i'm not doing anything and goes up to about 50-60 percent when i'm trying to pass traffic. This is with 7 7200s. I've got 2GB ram on Windows 7
