Cisco Multicast Manager 3.1 simplifies discovery, visualization, monitoring, management, and troubleshooting of multicast networks to help ensure the availability of mission-critical services delivered over multicast. The video operations solution (VOS) add-on feature provides monitoring support for video probes to proactively detect poor-quality video that is being transported across an IP multicast infrastructure. The Multicast VPN (MVPN) add-on feature gives customers the ability to manage their Virtual Route Forwarding (VRF) tables by monitoring the service provider edge routers along with presenting on-demand views of the MVPN environment by provider edge router or VRF table.
Configurable Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) trap descriptor
For SNMP traps originated by Cisco Multicast Manager, the user now has the ability to populate two free-format trap description fields that are included in the trap as variable bindings.
Service description in SNMP traps
SNMP traps originated by Cisco Multicast Manager will now have a service description for source and group (SG) for easy identification of the stream. The service description is obtained from the address management database in Cisco Multicast Manager.
Video Monitoring (VidMon) support
VidMon provides inline video monitoring of MPEG2 transport streams and uncompressed video.
Identification of down Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) interfaces
If a multicast trace performed by Cisco Multicast Manager fails due to one or more PIM interfaces being down, this feature allows the user to quickly identify the PIM interfaces that are down.
Time-based SG polling
Support is added to limit polling of specific multicast flows to a defined time range for selected days of the week.
SG delta trap change
Information provided in the SG delta trap has been expanded to include information about the router reporting the high or low deviation in measured packets per second rate of the multicast flow. This information helps identify the affected router.
Maximum login attempts
Non-administrator user accounts are locked after three failed login attempts.
Enhanced Cisco Multicast Manager user audit log
The types of user operations captured by the Cisco Multicast Manager audit log have been significantly expanded in Cisco Multicast Manager 3.1.
Dashboard metrics graph
A dashboard metrics graph feature allows users to monitor the traffic flow (metrics) for a selected set of configured polling entries.
TIBCO API enhancement
Cisco Multicast Manager 3.1 exposes an API for polling configurations.
