Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP) is a distance vector protocol, used in the MBone (Multicast Backbone), and originally was derived from the RIP (Routing Information Protocol) unicast routing protocol.
Normally this standard is used over IP-IP tunnels, where the DVMRP router encapsulates the multicast datagram into a unicast datagram before sending it to the remote DVMRP router.
If a packet's remaining TTL is lower than the threshold of the tunnel that DVMRP wants to send the packet onto, the packet is dropped.
DVMRP is based on the exchange of routing table information with directly connected neighbors (router to router).
The authors in [9] defines the performance metric for evaluation of multicast protocols DVMRP, MOSPF, PIMSM, PIM-DM and CBT and also outlines the simulation parameters and different methods to evaluate the performance of protocol.
The MBone is a collection of Unix workstations running a routing daemon called "mrouted," which is an implementation of another multicast routing protocol called the Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP;).
