Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.2X51-D15 for the QFX Series.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 13.3.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1X53-D20 for the OCX Series.

Description

(Optional) Allows you to specify an initiation message for a type 0 TLV to be sent to the BMP station. The message is transmitted when a BMP station establishes a connection to the device. You can provide some information to the BMP station system administrator (for example, a contact phone number). The initiation message includes a type 1 TLV containing the SNMP sysDescr value specified in RFC 1213 Management Information Base for Network Management of TCP/IP-based internets: MIB-II and a type 2 TLV containing the SNMP sysName value also from RFC 1213. The string in the initiation-message message is UTF-8.

The normal time for sending an initiation message is when the BMP session is first established. However, an initiation message change also triggers the transmission of an initiation message to current BMP sessions.

Another event that triggers the transmission of an initiation message is when you change in the sysName or sysDescr values in the SNMP configuration. The initiation message is sent to current BMP sessions.

Options
