  • Patent number: 10341223
    Abstract: An I/O board of a VXLAN switch receives a multicast data packet having a first VXLAN encapsulation, removes the first VXLAN encapsulation, determines that layer 3 multicast forwarding is to be performed for the multicast data packet, and sends the multicast data packet to a fabric board. The fabric board determines that layer 3 multicast forwarding is to be performed for the multicast data packet. When a multicast group member port corresponding to the multicast data packet is a VXLAN tunnel port, the fabric board modifies a source MAC address of the multicast data packet and sends the modified multicast data packet to an I/O board corresponding to the multicast group member port. The I/O board corresponding to the multicast group member port adds a second VXLAN encapsulation to the multicast data packet and forwards the multicast data packet having the second VXLAN encapsulation to a VXLAN.
