Release Information

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

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

Description

(Optional) Specifies the IPv4 or IPv6 address for the BMP connection on the device. We recommend that you configure a local address. For both active and passive modes, configure a loopback local address. This provides a consistent local endpoint, is useful for debugging, and assures greater reliability for the BMP connection since it is not tied to a single router interface.

For passive mode, specifying a local address is required. It also provides some security against a malicious BMP connection. For active mode, we also recommend configuring a local address to help ensure reliability.

If you change the local address, the BMP station connection flaps when you commit the configuration.

Options

addressSpecify the IPv4 or IPv6 address for the BMP connection on the local device.
