Generic BGP traps are not processed on Cisco switches


Article ID: 219690


Updated On:


CA Spectrum


The Generic BGP BackwardTransition traps ( or 6 2) are not processed on Cisco Switches that have a CiscoBGP4_App application model associated with them in Spectrum. 


Release : DX NetOps Spectrum 20.2. 21.2.x

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER


  • The BGP4_App model was not associated with the CIsco Switch.
  • The CiscoBGP4_App model was associated with the Cisco Switch and this application only processes the cbgpPeer2BackwardTransition trap, not the Generic BGP BackwardTransition traps ( or 6 2).


Configure the device to send the cbgpPeer2BackwardTransition to Spectrum. 

# cbgpPeer2BackwardTransition           cbgpPeer2LastError      0x00210d5a,2)\
                                        # cbgpPeer2State
                                        # cbgpPeer2LastErrorTxt
                                        # cbgpPeer2PrevState

Additional Information

  • Cisco started supporting the CISCO-BGP4-MIB mib in favor of the standard BGP4-Mib to add IPv6 BGP peer session monitoring.  
  • Spectrum was updated in 10.4.3 so that if the device supports the CISCO-BGP4-MIB (and responds to attribute cbgpPeer2LocalIdentifier with oid then a CiscoBGP4_App model will be created.  
  • If the device does still support the old BGP4-Mib (and responds to attribute bgpLocalAs with oid Spectrum will not create the original BGP4_App model.  It will only create the CiscoBGP4_App model.
