BGP Template

Use the BGP template to apply BGP configurations per segment to all appliances in the SD-WAN fabric.

  1. Click the edit icon next to the segment for which you want to modify the configuration.

  2. Configure the following elements as needed:

    FieldDescription
    AS Path PropagateSelect Yes to enable this appliance to send the full AS path associated with a prefix to other routers and appliances, avoiding routing loops. This will provide the learned path from an external prepend between a remote BGP site to local BGP peers.
    Graceful RestartSelect Yes to enable receiver-side graceful restart capability. EdgeConnect retains routes learned from the peer and continues to use it for forwarding (if possible) if/when a BGP peer goes down. Retained routes are considered stale routes. They will be deleted and replaced when new routes are received.
    Max Restart TimeIf Graceful Restart is enabled, specifies the maximum time in seconds to wait for a capable peer to come back after a restart or peer session failure.
    Stale Path TimeIf Graceful Restart is enabled, specifies the maximum time in seconds following a peer restart before removing stale routes associated with a peer.
    Next-Hop-SelfAdvertised route connected to a CE router that an EdgeConnect appliance learns from a PE router.
    Keep Alive TimerThis is the interval, in seconds, between keep alive signals to a peer.
    Hold TimerWhen availability to a peer is lost, this value specifies how long to wait before dropping the session.
    Enable MD5 PasswordIf applied, adds a password to authenticate TCP sessions with peers.
    Password / Confirm PasswordIf the MD5 password is enabled, use these fields to specify the password.
  3. Click Update.
