What is Cisco BGP?

Cisco Border Gateway Protocol, commonly known as Cisco BGP, is an exterior gateway protocol (EGP) that is utilized within enterprise network environments. Its primary function is to facilitate the exchange of routing and reachability information, often referred to as prefixes, between Autonomous Systems (AS). Unlike interior gateway protocols (IGPs) that operate within a single AS, BGP is designed to manage how packets are routed across multiple AS, making it a crucial element for Internet communication. It offers advanced routing features and supports a wide array of BGP attributes, allowing for flexible routing policies. Additionally, it includes features to validate routing information authenticity and protect the network from common routing threats.

How to monitor Cisco BGP?

ServicePilot makes it very easy to monitor Cisco BGP enabled equipment. Simply configure the SNMP interface of the Cisco BGP enabled device. Then use the ServicePilot web interface to add a resource from the ServicePilot network-cisco-bgp package.

How to install a cisco-bgp resource?

  1. Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
  2. Add a new cisco-bgp resource via the web interface (/prmviews or /prmresources) or via API (/prmpackages page), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.

Details of the cisco-bgp package are located in the /prmpackages page of the software.
