Hierarchy Level


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.



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