mrinfo uses the ASK_NEIGHBORS IGMP message
to query the specified multicast router. If the router responds, the version
number and a list of their neighboring multicast router addresses is part of
the response. If the responding router has a recent multicast version
mrinfo requests additional information
such as metrics, thresholds, and flags from the multicast router. Once the
specified multicast router responds, the configuration is displayed to the
The options are as follows:
- sets the debug level. When the debug level is greater than the default
value of 0, additional debugging messages are printed. Regardless of the
debug level, an error condition will always write an error message and
mrinfoto terminate. Non-zero debug levels have the following effects (printed to stderr):
- packet warnings.
- all level 1 messages plus notifications of down networks.
- all level 2 messages plus notifications of all packet timeouts.
- sets the neighbor query retry limit. The default is to do 3 retries.
- sets the number of seconds to wait for a neighbor query reply. The default timeout is 4 seconds.

For each neighbor of the queried multicast router, the IP of the queried router is displayed, followed by the IP and name of the neighbor. In square brackets the metric (cost of connection) and threshold (multicast ttl) is displayed. If the queried multicast router has a newer version number, the type (tunnel, srcrt) and status (disabled, down) of the connection is displayed.
