Configuring BMP

Configuring BMP


The BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP) monitors BGP running status, such as BGP peer relationship establishment and termination and route updates. Without BMP, manual query is required if you want to know about BGP running status. To improve the network monitoring efficiency, you can configure BMP on a router to use a monitoring server on the network to monitor BGP running status.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring BMP, configure basic BGP functions.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run bmp

    BMP is started and the BMP view is displayed.

  3. (Optional) Run statistics-timer time

    An interval is set, at which the router sends BGP running statistics to a monitoring server.

    Configure the interval based on the network stability requirements. If BGP requires high stability, configure a small interval. However, if the router sends BGP running statistics frequently, a large amount of bandwidth resources will be consumed.

    The default interval is 3600s. Retaining the default value is recommended.

  4. (Optional) Run route-mode { pre-policy | post-policy }

    Whether statistics about all received routes or only accepted routes are sent to the monitoring server is set.

    By default, statistics about only the accepted routes (routes that match the import policy) are sent to the monitoring server.


    If you specify pre-policy in the command, run the keep-all-routes command or the peer keep-all-routes command in the BGP view to save the routes carried in the BGP Update messages that are advertised by all BGP peers or peer groups after BGP connections are established.

  5. Run session { ipv4-address | ipv6-address }

    An IPv4 address of the monitoring server is specified for TCP connections to be set up between the router and the monitoring server.

  6. Run tcp connect port port-number [ password md5 cipher-password ]

    Parameters are configured for TCP connections to be set up between the router and the monitoring server.

  7. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.


    After configuring BMP session parameters, run the reset bmp session command in the user view to reset the BMP session for the new BMP session parameters to take effect.

Verifying the Configuration

Run the display bmp session command to check BMP session configurations.
