BGP nei soft-reconfiguration

Can I apply 'BGP nei soft-reconfiguration' to my neighbours in the CCIE lab so that they can learn configuration faster. Is it safe to do this.

Re: BGP nei soft-reconfiguration

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

Re: BGP nei soft-reconfiguration

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.

Re: BGP nei soft-reconfiguration

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,

Guru Prasad R
