Description (partial)

Poor performance for multicast on asr1k over dmvpn

1) Multicast packet has to be coming in on a Tunnel interface (not a physical interface).
2) NS (negate signaling) flag has to be set on one of the interfaces in the MFIB (S,G) entry.

If both these conditions are met, then the packet is punted to control plane & forwarded in software in addition to the hardware forwarding thus causing duplicates. Note that the NS punts are periodic/throttled and not all multicast packets are punted because of NS. Thus the duplication is intermittent/periodic.
