Synopsis

  • This module provides configuration management of global BGP parameters on devices running Cisco IOS-XR

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
config
dictionary
Specifies the BGP related configuration.
address_family
list / elements=dictionary
Specifies BGP address family related configurations.
afi
string / required
    Choices:
  • ipv4

redistribute
list / elements=dictionary
Specifies the redistribute information from another routing protocol.
id
string
Identifier for the routing protocol for configuring redistribute information.
Valid for protocols 'ospf', 'eigrp', 'isis' and 'ospfv3'.
metric
integer
Specifies the metric for redistributed routes.
protocol
string / required
    Choices:
  • ospf
  • ospfv3

  • isis
  • static
  • connected
  • lisp
  • mobile
  • rip
  • subscriber
Specifies the protocol for configuring redistribute information.
route_map
string
Specifies the route map reference.
safi
string
    Choices:
  • flowspec
  • unicast ←
  • multicast
  • labeled-unicast
Specifies the type of cast for the address family.
bgp_as
integer / required
Specifies the BGP Autonomous System (AS) number to configure on the device.
log_neighbor_changes
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enable/disable logging neighbor up/down and reset reason.
neighbors
list / elements=dictionary
Specifies BGP neighbor related configurations.
advertisement_interval
integer
Specifies the minimum interval (in seconds) between sending BGP routing updates.
The range is from 0 to 600.
description
string
Neighbor specific description.
ebgp_multihop
integer
Specifies the maximum hop count for EBGP neighbors not on directly connected networks.
The range is from 0 to 255.
enabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Administratively shutdown or enable a neighbor.
neighbor
string / required
Neighbor router address.
password
string
Password to authenticate the BGP peer connection.
remote_as
integer / required
Remote AS of the BGP neighbor to configure.
tcp_mss
integer
Specifies the TCP initial maximum segment size to use.
The range is from 68 to 10000.
timers
dictionary
Specifies BGP neighbor timer related configurations.
holdtime
integer
Interval after not receiving a keepalive message that the software declares a peer dead.
The range is from 3 to 65535.
keepalive
integer
Frequency with which the Cisco IOS-XR software sends keepalive messages to its peer.
The range is from 0 to 65535.
min_neighbor_holdtime
integer
Interval specifying the minimum acceptable hold-time from a BGP neighbor.
The minimum acceptable hold-time must be less than, or equal to, the interval specified in the holdtime argument.
The range is from 3 to 65535.
update_source
string
Source of the routing updates.
router_id
string
Configures the BGP routing process router-id value.
operation
string
    Choices:
  • merge ←
  • replace
  • override
  • delete
Specifies the operation to be performed on the BGP process configured on the device.
In case of merge, the input configuration will be merged with the existing BGP configuration on the device.
In case of replace, if there is a diff between the existing configuration and the input configuration, the existing configuration will be replaced by the input configuration for every option that has the diff.
In case of override, all the existing BGP configuration will be removed from the device and replaced with the input configuration.
In case of delete the existing BGP configuration will be removed from the device.
