Change node status based on routing neighbor status
We are running NPM 12.1
I have recently enabled alerting for BGP Neighbor status. The alerting is working as designed, but I was hoping to be able to change the status of the Node, so when the BGP neighbor goes down, the node shows in the "Nodes with Problems", similar to how the node will be green with a flashing red child dot when an interface is down. I tried using the "Set Custom Status" in the alert configuration, but that only customizes the alert status.
On our MPLS network, interfaces rarely drop since carrier equipment isn't propagating status, so using the BGP Neighbor status to identify circuit drops is needed.
