[RFE] Add MLDv1 / MLDv2 snooping to bridge
Last modified: 2016-10-04 00:32:13 EDT
Description of problem:
The bridge module recently added support for IPv4 multicast by adding support for IGMP snooping. This request is to extend that support to IPv6 multicast by snooping for MLDv1 and MLDv2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
IPv6 mulicast message are broadcast on all ports
IPv6 multicast messages are only sent to ports with multicast receivers.
May require additional support in bridge-utils
Upstream commit for MLDv2:
Subhendu, it looks like RHEL6 already has the MLD snooping support courtesy of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=716263
Can you please verify that this fulfills your needs? Thanks!
See comment#9. The feature seems to be already in
RHEL6; therefore, close as CURRENTRELEASE.
