Switch IGMP subscription delays

    We have a Catalyst 3550 (12.1(2))switch and the following setup:

    Several embedded GNU/Linux systems (busybox/2.4.27) are connected directly
    to the switch. One of these systems is connected to a hub, which is in
    turn connected to the same switch. The hub is not connected to the
    multicast clients, but has several other (non IGMP based) connections.

    When everything is reset (reboot), the systems connected directly to the
    switch can take up to 60" to get subscripted to a Multicast address,
    while the system connected via the hub, synchronises much faster.

    Does anyone have an idea what this might be or if this is actually
    caused by the switch?

    Do you have portfast enabled on switch ports?

    With best regards,

    Hang, this was the thing I forgot to mention in my previous post. Yes,
    we have enabled portfast.
