Hello Just,

in a lab environment you can use the old clear ip bgp * without no risk to have impact in a production network.


In general you can do what is not explicitly forbidden but adding unrequested commands require some time.


Hope to help

Giuseppe

the other way you may want to clear BGP routing table updates is to use;


"clear ip bgp x.x.x.x in" where x.x.x.x is your neighbor ip address. this way your router will prompt the neighbour router to re-sent bgp table update. much more safer in the production network.

Hi Just,


In Production Environment Perspective:


-Occupies additional memory for storing routing update information.


Recommendations: -


-Use the dynamic soft reset method for resetting the BGP table using: clear ip bgp - - - - soft in/out


Hope I am Informative.


Pls RATE if HELPS


Best Regards,
