Title: Scaling IP Multicast on Datacenter Topologies
Many datacenter applications experience multicast communication patterns, and they could benefit from
the reduced bandwidth consumption and server overhead from using IP multicast. Unfortunately, traditional
IP multicast management protocols, designed for arbitrary service-provider or enterprise networks, do not
provide sufficient scalability in the number of supported multicast groups.
This paper examines how the unique topological structure of modern datacenter networks can be leveraged
to increase group scalability. Our basic approach carefully partitions the multicast address space and assigns
them across switches in datacenters’ multi-rooted tree networks. Our approach further improves scalability by
locally aggregating multicast addresses at bottleneck switches, at the cost of slightly inflating downstream traffic.
We evaluate the system’s scalability, traffic overhead, and fault tolerance through a mix of simulation and analysis.
Experiments show that a datacenter with 27,648 servers and commodity switches can support up to 100,000
multicast groups with 50 members on average, which allows each physical server to subscribe to nearly 200
multicast groups concurrently.
