The default multicast address seems to be, so that's the
one for your hadoop-metrics.properties.

I'm not an expert, either --- I'm using the same multicast address on
all nodes in my cluster. On each node, tcpdump shows incoming Ganglia
traffic from every other node to the multicast address. It's usually a
burst of about  200 UDP packets every 4 seconds or so (for a 6-node
cluster), so the traffic overhead should be negligible.
