Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 11.3.
Support for range from 2 through 20 (for BGP) introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1.
multipath option introduced in Junos OS Release 16.1R2.
Support for 64 BGP add-paths introduced in Junos OS Release 18.4R1 for the MX Series.
include-backup-path and path-selection-mode options introduced in Junos OS Release 18.4R1 for the MX Series and PTX Series.
Enable advertisement and/or reception of multiple paths to a destination to/from the same BGP peer, instead of advertising/receiving only the active path to/from the same BGP peer.
The minimum configuration for the send side is add-path send path-count <n>. The configuration for the receive side is add-path send receive.
You cannot just configure add-path. You must configure at least one send/receive. (If you attempt to configure only add-path, it will fail.) If only send/receive is configured, the corresponding support is enabled: send for advertisement of add-path routes and receive for reception of add-path routes.
The effective receive/send add-path state of a BGP session depends on the add-path capability advertisement from both the ends. That is, if R1 configures send, but R2 doesn't configure receive, then R1 will not send add-path to R2.
The remaining statement is explained separately. See CLI Explorer or click a linked statement in the Syntax section for details.
