MRM - Multicast Routing Monitor

A tool designed to notify network admin of any multicast routing problems.

There are 3 components to MRM

The configuration is laid out on the doc cd under 'Using IP Multicast Tools'(well apart from the fact it neglects to inform you how to start the test!)

I implement MRM on the same topology used in the previous MSDP post.

The test sender is on R1

int s1/0
ip mrm test-sender

access-list 1 permit
access-list 2 permit
ip mrm manager test1
manager fa0/0 group
senders 1
receivers 2 sender-list 1

int s1/0
ip mrm test-receiver

And so to the crucial piece of config NOT on the doc cd.
On R2 the manager

mrm test1 start
