Configure BGP Peer Group

  1. 1. CONFIGURE BGP PEER GROUP www.netprotocolxpert.in
  2. 2.  BGP peer groups are used to simplify configuration and to improve performance. It can be used when a router has a group of neighbors with the same update policies. The update is generated once per group rather than for each neighbor. To create and use a peer group follow next steps:  Type neighbor group-name peer-group to create a peer-group, where group-name is the name that you give to the peer group.  next, enter neighbor ip-address peer-group group-name command, which will make a neighbor to be part of peer group.  You can reset connections to member of a group by typing clear ip bgp peer-group group-name command in exec mode.
  3. 3.  Configure BGP peer group on BORDER router in AS 64520. Loopback ip addresses are used as source of BGP packets. Let’s assume we have connection from BORDER router to all devices in AS 64520. If not use BGP peer group, configuration on BORDER router with the others will look like this:  router bgp 64520  neighbor 10.0.0.2 remote-as 64520  neighbor 10.0.0.2 update-source loopback 0  neighbor 10.0.0.2 next-hop-self  neighbor 10.0.0.3 remote-as 64520  neighbor 10.0.0.3 update-source loopback 0  neighbor 10.0.0.3 next-hop-self  neighbor 10.0.0.4 remote-as 64520  neighbor 10.0.0.4 update-source loopback 0  neighbor 10.0.0.4 next-hop-self
  4. 4. WITH THIS CONFIGURATION BGP UPDATES WILL BE GENERATED FOR EACH NEIGHBOR, BUT IF USE PEER GROUP, UPDATES ARE GENERATED ONCE PER PEER-GROUP. IF USE BGP PEER-GROUP, CONFIGURATION ON BORDER ROUTER WILL LOOK LIKETHIS:  router bgp 64520  neighbor local peer-group  neighbor local remote-as 64520  neighbor local update-source loopback 0  neighbor local next-hop-self  neighbor 10.0.0.2 peer-group local  neighbor 10.0.0.3 peer-group local  neighbor 10.0.0.4 peer-group local  The name of BGP peer-group is local, this you can see from configuration above, also we get a more robust configuration.
