Monitoring BGP sessions using SNMP on TNSR
I need some assistance with monitoring BGP sessions using the SNMP protocol on my TNSR router.
Could someone please advise me how to successfully monitor BGP connections using SNMP? If you have any alternative methods or suggestions for tools that I could try out, I would appreciate any ideas.
Thank you for any help!
@vantomas Use a NMS like Zabbix or LibreNMS.
Alternatively, what i do is use a logging server such as Graylog and when i receive BGP Down alerts i get an email notification from Graylog.
@michmoor Zabbix or LibreNMS rely on the SNMP BGP4-MIB, but TNSR does not support it. So I'm wondering if there is any other way to monitor BGP via SNMP, maybe some TNSR specific OIDs will work.

@vantomas SNMP MIBs being extensible its possible Netgate added a BGP MIB. Devs/Support should be able to answer that if they havent.
The workaround is to ship your logs to a logging server and use email alerting to be notified for BGP flaps.
Usage of PRTG & Kentix SMS Gateway together may be informing you by SMS and eMail.
