BGP peer(s) down-paloaltonetworks-panos

Vendor: paloaltonetworks

OS: panos

Description:
Indeni will alert one or more BGP peers isn’t communicating well.

Remediation Steps:
Review the cause for the peers being down.
Consider starting at https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Configuration-Articles/BGP-Routes-are-not-Injected-into-the-Routing-Table/ta-p/54938 . You can also log into the device over SSH and run "less mp-log routed.log\

How does this work?
This alert uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current status of the BGP peers (the equivalent of running “show routing protocol bgp peer” in CLI).

Why is this important?
Once BGP is configured on a Palo Alto Networks firewall (using a guide such as https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Configuration-Articles/Tech-Note-How-to-Configure-BGP/ta-p/62581 ) it is important to track the health of each BGP connection. If a BGP peer is not responding, certain dynamic routes which were expected might not be available, resulting in service disruption.

Without Indeni how would you find this?
The status of BGP peers is accessible through the CLI. An administrator would normally review their status during a service outage.
