Description (partial)


A multicast traffic stream may be switched over from the default Multicast
Distribution Tree (MDT) to the Data MDT when the actual data rate of the
stream is 10 to 15 percent less than the configured switchover threshold.


1) An MDT data group has been configured for a multicast Virtual Private 
Network (mVPN) with the following command:

mdt data <I>mdt-group-address/mask</I> [threshold <I>threshold-value</I>][<I>acl-name</I>] 

2) A multicast stream which matches the <I>mdt-group-address/mask</I> specified
is being forwarded at a rate 10 to 15 percent below the <I>threshold</I> value
