I should have been more specific. I want to generate an e-mail alarm to our NOC when any one of these BGP peer sessions drops from its Established state.
I am using a syslog rule looking for *Down BGP Notification sent*, * sent to neighbor*(hold time expired)* in the Message
I do this via the syslog alerting for BGP, EIGRP, and OSPF.
In the case of BGP:
- create a new rule, name it
- Under the Message tab, set the "message type pattern" to "BGP-5-ADJCHANGE" (for cisco)
- Under alert action, have it send an email to the right group with the info.
