This MIB module defines management objects for the
Multicast Switching features on Cisco Layer 2/3
Definition of some of the terms used in this MIB:
Multicast Replication - The mechanism by which a
system creates one or more copies of a multicast
packet for forwarding.
Ingress Multicast Replication - A type of multicast
replication where the replication engine on the
ingress module always performs the whole replication.
Egress Multicast Replication - A type of multicast
replication where the replication engines on both
the ingress and egress modules perform the replication.
VPN - Virtual private network.
A secure IP-based network that shares resources
with one or more physical networks.
VRF - VPN Routing and Forwarding instance
Consists of an IP routing table, a derived
forwarding table, a set of interfaces that use
the forwarding table, and a set of rules and
routing protocols that determine what goes into
the forwarding table.
MVPN - Multicast VPN
MVRF - Multicast VRF
A VRF which has multicast routing enabled.
VRF-lite - A feature that enables a service
provider to support two or more VPNs, where IP
addresses can be overlapped among the VPNs.
LTL - Local Target Logic
A hardware resource table to aid in switching.
OIF - Outgoing Interface

DF - Designated Forwarder.
