show ip bgp summary

Unanswered Question
Jan 22nd, 2008

I was searching cisco's site and found this page.

When the sh ip bgp nei comman is issued

there are 2 network entries for for bgp neighbors that are configured. However I dont quite understand the State/PfxRcd

entry. The first has a number of 23 under it. The second has a number of 0

Does this mean that the first neighbor is advertising 23 network routes to my router. and the 2nd neighbor is advertising 0 ?

I have this problem too.

The correct general explanation is that the local router received 23 prefix from BGP peer/neighbor and received nothing from BGP peer/neighbor.

The neighbor/s maybe advertising more to the local router but it depends on the local router configuration (filter) on the number of prefixes it received.
