Need assistance for BGP session monitoring using SNMP

L0 Member

Could someone please assist with how to monitor the BGP session in pal alto using snmp , especially when it goes down/ up, through any snmp based monitoring tool.

 

Basically 

 

show routing protocol BGP summary , 

 

if the peer is down or  state changes from Established , then should get an alert.

Thank you for posting question @dasaradhi_n1 

 

To my knowledge there is no MIB to support pulling of BGP statistics by SNMP.

 

As an alternative, there are a few options. It is possible to use SNMP Traps to get alerted when BGP session goes down: https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA14u000000HBfzCAG&lang=en_US%E2%80%A...

 

Or use an email alert with the filter: ( subtype eq routing ) and ( eventid eq routed-BGP-peer-left-established )

Or use API to retrieve BGP session information.
