Description (partial)

Symptom:
Aug 23 17:06:31.631 SHYMKEN: %MCAST-SP-STDBY-6-GC_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: IGMP snooping was trying to allocate more Layer 2 entries than what allowed (100000)
Aug 23 17:07:24.427 SHYMKEN: %MCAST-SP-STDBY-6-GC_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: IGMP snooping was trying to allocate more Layer 2 entries than what allowed (100000)

After checking the Mcast MAC addresses and GCE on both Active and standby SP I see following:



On Active Sup SP there are about 10000   static Multicast MAC records like:

SHM-AMTS-PE-01#remote command switch sh mac-address-table static | in 0100.5e
No  Yes  No   997    0100.5e15.057f        static          0   0x4C00
No  Yes  No   997    0100.5e03.438b        static          0   0x3DA8


On Standby SP:

About 13000 so almost equal:

SHM-AMTS-PE-01#remote command standby-sp sh mac-address-table static | in 0100.5e
No  Yes  No   997    0100.5e33.0556        static          0   0x58C0
No  Yes  No   997    0100.5e15.057f        static          0   0x4C00



On Active SP there are about 10000 GCE:

SHM-AMTS-PE-01#remote command switch show mmls verbose gc gce

On standby SP just above 100000
