Bgp peer sensors for Arista switches with Vrfs



Your Vote:



I have two Arista switches with bgp peers in Vrfs. When i try to add bgp peer sensor in prtg, it says no interface found. I believe we need to do something for bgp peer sensors if peers are in Vrf. Can someone help what i need to do to enable those bgp peer sensors for within Vrf?

I tried snmp test and it says no OIDs found.

bgp prtg vrf

Hi there and thank you for your KB-Post.

When exactly do you get the "no interface found" error/message? What sensor are you attempting to add?

Did you have a look at this post/script?

If your device implements the bgpPeerTable from the RFC1269-MIB or BGP4-MIB, the sensor should work. An SNMP Custom Table sensor on the OID should also work.

To confirm whenever this data is available, you can perform a walk test from the SNMP Tester on the OID.

I'm not sure whenever the VRF will play a role. You may need to use the correct SNMP Credentials (Community for SNMP V1 and V2c or "Context" for SNMP V3) to poll a specific instance/VRF. If unsure please check with the device's vendor.

Best Regards,
