Re: BGP Logs not getting reflected on Intrested (Still not clear

I agree with the comments of Giuseppe in the older thread you had posted. There exist cases of interconnection methods where failures on physical media are not reflected very well on router interface status. But there is one more thing. If the interface associated with a BGP session goes down (and assuming there is no other way for rerouting the traffic to the BGP neighbor address), the BGP session will also go down. The inverse is not always true. I mean, if the BGP session went down, this doesn't necessarily mean the interconnection circuit has failed (this is only one of the possibilities). Maybe something else went wrong on the peer BGP router. Do you have access to that router as well to see what happened there and how the event looked from the peer's perspective? Maybe the peer had high CPU load or lack of memory and started dropping sessions for example or any other malfunctions occured there.
