Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 16.1.


Configure the SNMP options and customize the behavior of BGP-related MIBs. By default, SNMP generates traps when a session moves from a higher state to a lower state. For example, from Active to Idle or from Established to Idle. This can result in many uninteresting traps, especially when there are a large number of unconfigured BGP sessions that toggle continuously betweenActive and Idle state. Set the backward-traps-only-from-established option to eliminate the uninteresting traps, and receive backward trap notifications only when transitioning away from the Established state. This can substantially reduce the number of traps sent.


backward-traps-only-from-establishedLimit the generation of traps for backward transitions to session states that are moving from Established state only.
