    Multicast is the delivery of packets to a group of destinations on a network in a single transmission. Multicast enables many advanced network services such as multimedia distribution, finance, education and desktop imaging just to name a few and is used primarily to reduce the amount of bandwidth traffic. Because of the complexity of multicast networking, traditional SNMP monitoring tools and methods will not provide the necessary level of detail to troubleshoot multicast related issues. See how SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor's advanced multicast monitoring can aid in monitoring and troubleshooting IP multicast networks.
