Why does Spectrum use nonexistant peers in the event text for BGP events?
Article ID: 192129
We are seeing BGP-related events in Spectrum with some strange text in the event message- the message references a BGP peer that our device has no such BGP peers, and we have never heard of this provider. We are wondering is Spectrum is somehow performing a lookup, and retrieving this value incorrectly?
There is an issue where Spectrum performs a lookup by Ip Address and receives the incorrect BGP Peer domain name.
Release : 10.3.x, 10.4.x
Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER
Spectrum 10.3.2 with BMP 01, please request patch 10.03.02.PTF_10.3.252 from Support
This is fixed out of the box in Spectrum 10.4.1 by adding the following to the .vnmrc file and then stopping and restarting the SpectroS
This will show BGP Peer hosts by their correct Ip address and not the incorrect hostname.
