Any network that supports broadcast but not multicast, addressing: Support for local IP multicasting includes sending multicast datagrams, joining multicast groups and receiving multicast datagrams, and leaving multicast groups.
IP multicasting is defined as the transmission of an IP datagram to a “host group”, a set of zero or more hosts identified by rrfc single IP destination address. IGMP is an asymmetric protocol and is specified here from the point of view of a host, rather than a multicast router. This communication chain ends with the router of the data stream transmitter, which in turn duplicates the IP packet if required, if it has several outgoing interfaces to serve.
All IP multicast datagrams are sent as-is, inside the local framing. There are three versions of IGMP. The original version of the protocol frc itself does not specify which router should be used for multicast queries regulated by the Multicast Routing Protocol. All of the following sections of this memo are applicable to level 2 implementations. Imgpv3 all other Reply messages, the group address field contains the same host group address iympv3 in the corresponding Request message.
The ogmpv3 of IP host group addresses to physical hosts may be considered a generalization of the binding of IP unicast addresses. The IP module must maintain a data structure listing the IP addresses of all host groups to which the host currently belongs, along with each group’s loopback policy, access key, and timer variables.
IGMP is responsible for organizing multicast groups that allow IP data igmppv3 to be itmpv3 to multiple recipients. A multicast datagram is delivered to all members of its destination host group with the same “best-efforts” reliability as regular unicast IP datagrams, i. IGMP can be used for one-to-many networking applications such as online streaming video and gamingand allows more efficient use of resources when supporting these types of applications.
If a host uses a pseudo-random number generator to compute the reporting delays, one of the host’s own individual IP address should be used as part of the seed for the generator, to reduce the chance of multiple hosts generating the same sequence of delays.
However, the most important new feature of IGMPv2 is that the logoff process has sped up: IGMPv1 is the first published version of the communication protocol to include some basic features, many of which can also be found in more recent versions. However, minor changes have been made to the IGMP header: When a host receives a Query, rather than sending Reports immediately, it starts a report delay timer for each of its group memberships on the network interface of the incoming Query.
The IGMP header has a total length of 64 bits. By including the Router Alert option in the IP header of its protocol message, RSVP Resource ReSerVation Protocol can cause the message to be intercepted while causing little or no performance penalty on the forwarding of normal data packets.
For hosts that are not connected to networks with multicast-routing gateways or that do gfc need to receive multicast datagrams originating on other networks, IGMP serves no purpose and is therefore optional for now. But what do the respective extensions look like in detail? There is at least one multicast agent directly attached to every IP network or subnetwork that supports IP multicasting. A host requests membership to a group through its local router while a router listens for these requests and periodically sends out subscription queries.
If a second or additional terminal in a private network is to be added to the same multicast group, the internet router can immediately grant the application for access, whereas data streams that have already been received are forwarded directly.
This would make it practically impossible to keep the service permanently available.
This new distribution of responsibility is consistent with the lightweight, soft-state gateway architecture of the Internet, and it allows the IP multicast services in the same way as the IP unicast services to be used among hosts on a single network when no router is up or present on the network. When the data packet is transmitted, the checksum is computed and inserted into this field. This very specific information is followed by the source address or a list of the individual source addresses 32 bits eachif several sources are to be defined.
The gateways use this information, in conjunction with a multicast routing protocol, to support IP multicasting across the Internet. Mappings for other types of networks will be specified in the future.
A host requests the creation of new groups, and joins or leaves existing groups, by exchanging messages with a neighboring agent. Protocol Independent Multicast PIM is then used between the local and remote multicast routers, to direct multicast traffic 376 hosts sending multicasts to hosts that have registered through IGMP to receive them.
Queries are addressed to the all-hosts group address How does IGMP work? It is expected that IGMP will become recommended at some future date, when multicast-routing gateways have become more widely available.
The IP multicast extensions specified in this memo are significantly different from those specified in Rtc In order to avoid an “implosion” of concurrent Reports and to reduce the total number of Reports transmitted, two techniques are used:.

Kgmpv3 versions are always backward compatible, which means that an IGMPv3 device automatically supports versions 1 and 2. Unlike its predecessor, IGMPv3 allows a host to join one group and leave another in a single transaction — IGMPv2 still requires two separate messages.
