BGP Peer down monitoring through SNMP Traps

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how I can monitor with BGP peer went down using SNMP traps or any other methods that are out there. Basically I would like to get a trap that tells me the IP address of the peer that went down.

Looking over the SNMP MIBs for BGP all i can find is snmp traps that tell me there was a change in states in BGP, but don't say which neighbor.

Is there any way to get such information? Would I have to use EEM with some script? This seems like a very common thing that people would want to know.

Thank you in advance,

Tom

Re: BGP Peer down monitoring through SNMP Traps

SNMP notifications can be configured on the router and GET operations can be performed from an external management station only after BGP SNMP support is enabled.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. snmp-server enable traps bgp [state-changes {[all] [backward-trans] [limited]}] | [threshold prefix]

4. exit

You can find scripts for this purpose here:
