BGP peer(s) down for Juniper




Indeni will alert one or more BGP peers isn't communicating well.

Remediation Steps

Review the cause for the peers being down.

How does this work?

This script logs into the Juniper JUNOS-based device using SSH and retrieves the output of the "show bgp neighbor" command. The output includes the status of active/established/inactive BGP neighbors.

Why is this important?

Due to the dynamic nature of BGP, it should be closely monitored to verify that it is working correctly. Since routing is a vital part of any network, a failure or issues in dynamic routing can cause large disruptions.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually run the command.
