what is the name of that tree!?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,



One of the things that make the multicast harder for me is tree naming, In sparse mode, the tree that originated from the root toward multicast recievers (*,G) is called shared tree, some times RPT "root path tree" since it is rooted from the RP,



But I didn't find a unified name for the tree that orginated from the Source toward the RP (S,G) tree, some time they called SPT "I dont know what does it stand for but Shoretest Path Tree is something very different and cannot be here" and some time they call it shared tree, these different namings make understanding other advanced multicast technologies much harder form me, I just would like clarify those basic things hoping that it will make multicast technologies easier...
