Re: How to monitor with MRM? I get no output when debugging posted 11/29/2008

I disabled PIM on R7-R8 and restarted it then got some good stuff. Here is a
sample

Nov 29 22:10:21.770: MRM: Receive Status Report from 172.31.80.8 on
FastEthernet0/0
Nov 29 22:10:21.770: MRM: Send Status Report Ack to 172.31.80.8 for group
239.1.1.1
Nov 29 22:10:21.770: IP MRM status report -- Test:MyTest  Receiver:
172.31.80.8
Nov 29 22:10:21.770:   Sender:172.31.12.2      Pkt Loss:7(28%)  Ehsr:0
Nov 29 22:10:21.778: MRM: Receive Status Report from 172.31.200.7 on
FastEthernet0/0
Nov 29 22:10:21.778: MRM: Send Status Report Ack to 172.31.200.7 for group
239.1.1.1
Nov 29 22:10:21.778: IP MRM status report -- Test:MyTest  Receiver:
172.31.200.7
Nov 29 22:10:21.778:   Sender:172.31.12.2      Pkt Loss:15(60%)  Ehsr:0

Also the show command showed "ACK" now, not sure what N-Ack was about.

It all seems to be good now
