    Layer 2 MAC header. IGMP snooping can help reduce cluttered traffic on the LAN. With IGMP snooping enabled globally, the Web-Smart Switch will forward multicast traffic only to connections that have group members attached.
  • Page 47 Query Interval (60-600 sec): The Query Interval is the interval between General Queries sent. By adjusting the Query Interval, the number of IGMP messages can increase or decrease; larger values cause IGMP Queries to be sent less often. Default is 125 seconds. Max Response Time (10-25 sec): The Max Response Time specifies the maximum allowed time before sending a responding report.
  • Page 48 Router Timeout (60-600 sec): This is the interval after which a learnt router port entry will be purged. For each router port learnt, a 'RouterPortPurgeTimer' runs for 'RouterPortPurgeInterval'. This timer will be restarted whenever a router control message is received over that port.
