BGP Support for Fast Peering Session Deactivation

Hello Experts,

I've configured BGP with Fall Over on my eBGP sessions. However, is there someway of determining that its configured or even working? I can't find any debugs or show commands for it.

neighbor ip-address fall-over

Cheers

Carlton

sh ip route x.x.x.x for an external route will display the best route for that route, sh ip bgp x.x.x.x will display other routes know for that route. This way you can see if the alternate best route is the next hop of your backup link.

So pick a route that is external to your AS and perform path analysis to determine if BGP failover has the potential to work, if the primary and secondary routes with associated next-hops are not present then there is no way to failover.

Next, determine a window of time that will minimize impact and shut down one of your external peers. After this is done check connectivity, you get the idea? Policy could circumvent failover so you want to make sure you can failover.
