How can we how many multicast receivers are present in a group.I can only find the joinGroup and leaveGroup functions but there are no options for knowing the exact number of recievers of that message

Please use html tags to format code blocks.

Only the router (the one serving the group) knows this, right? there could be an SNMP function provided for querying this info, by your router, perhaps, depending on the router brand & OS?

Plus what if one receiver on your particular router is actually a router for still another subnet full of additional receivers? do you want to count that as 1 receiver?
