BGP Description

The Datasource BGP- shows per BGP instance a Description based on snmp OID which is the bgp peer identifier.

That is not the actual description that's configured in the switch.
Here is an example of BGP configurations.

address-family ipv4 vrf t01-WAN
bgp router-id
network mask
network mask
network mask
neighbor remote-as 65500
neighbor description t01 wan koppeling naar rack z1.3.23
neighbor password ***********
neighbor activate
neighbor soft-reconfiguration inbound
neighbor prefix-list t01-WAN-IP-BLOKKEN out
neighbor maximum-prefix 200 50

address-family ipv4 vrf a07-GTT-sip
bgp router-id
network mask
neighbor remote-as 65135
neighbor description a07 gtt euro fiber
neighbor password *********
neighbor activate
neighbor send-community
neighbor prefix-list a07-TO-GTT out

A snmpwalk on SNMP OID doesn't show the neighbor description.
How can we get the bgp neighbor description into the LogicMonitor BGP instance description ?

  • That datasource only uses the SNMP data available, so you won’t be able to do it without changing the discovery method from SNMP to script and using that script to log into the device via SSH and parse the config to pull that information out.
