Jeff Wheeler, Innovative Network Concepts

Jeff Wheeler is a consultant to small- and medium-sized hosting companies, datacenter operators, and others. Typically serving as the highest level of escalation for troubleshooting and the point-man on design decisions, Jeff's daily interaction with a variety of different networks allows him to work on many different and interesting networking problems, in addition to a normal share of "traceroute tickets."
Abstract: If a layer-2 switch running MLD-snooping learns multicast state for IPv6 Solicited-Nodes addresses used by Neighbor Discovery (ND), it may exhaust its multicast state resources and perform in an unspecified or degraded manner.
This presentation outlines the problem, test procedure, and possible work-arounds and solutions
