Re: Wed Sep 7 at 9:30am Pacific/4:30pm UTC is September's multicast-cg meeting

Catching up and looking through the notes from the Aug mtg:

"Separately, some interesting developments on multicast itself. Feedback 
from one of the network operators using it for TV delivery. Problem with 
IGMPv3, when they see a IGMPv1 packet it downgrades to IGMPv1, which stops 
SSM from working. RFC 3376 (IGMPv3) section 7.2.2 says you MAY suppress 
further IGMPv3 membership reports when you see IGMPv1 report on the LAN. 
We have a case for changing the may to a should not, and submitting a 
patch to Linux. Make multicast more reliable on home networks. Thanks Max 
for pointing out the relevance. Its timely to get the spec changed since 
the PIM wg is working on promoting IGMPv3 to a full internet standard 
instead of its current proposed standard status."

It's been a while, but last I checked the IGMPv3 spec actually did a 
decent job with backards compat.  If a v3 router receives a v2 join, it 
will drop to v2, *but only for that particular group*.  All other groups 
will remain on v2 for the LAN.  Further, the routers should ignore any ASM 
behavior in the SSM range.  That means IGMPv1/2 reports, (*,g) joins, PIM 
registers, MSDP SAs for any groups in 232/8 should always be ignored.  At 
least that's the behavior on Juniper and Cisco routers, and I would 
assume other vendors as well.

Now that's the behavior of v2-v3 interop.  TBH, I never looked at v1-v3 
interop as I kind of assumed v1 went away in the late 90s.  V2 pretty 
quickly got implemented on host stacks, replacing v1, while v3 took a bit 
longer, but should be pretty pervasive by this point.  For that reason, I 
wonder if this is a red herring- an issue someone saw in a lab years ago 
and decided v3 was not viable.  Also, wondering if they could have been 
hitting a bug, not a spec issue.  Anyway, if you have more details on what 
they saw, and why they have v1 hosts in the first place that they have 
directly connecting to their routers, I'd be very curious.
