Restart OpenBGPD on Firewalll reload?



  • Is any way to have OpenBGPD restart automatically after the firewall rules are reloaded?

    I have a alias/table of blocked IPs that contains addresses sent from an OpenBGPD neighbor.

    Whenever I make changes to firewall rules and the firewall is reloaded, the table is cleared and I have to manually restart OpenBGPD to re-populate it from the neighbor.

    I know this kind of table maintenance is not the core function of OpenBGPD but thought I'd ask.



  • The afterfilterchangeshellcmd option of shellcmd package was the way to do it.

    Many thanks to "Kill Bill".
