I've got Prime Infrastructure 2.1 and I'd like to monitor BGP sessions on Internet routers.
I've discovered one Internet router and enabled BGP protocol to be discovered. Router's BGP neighbor was discovered successfully and it can be seen under job discovery results.
I'd like Prime to create an alarm/notification when BGP neighbor goes down. I've performed tests and Prime didn't show anything.
Syslog message which shows BGP peer down is displayed under Syslog section in Prime.
Under Alarms there are no alarms connected to this.
Under Events there are no events connected to this.
Can Prime monitor BGP sessions out of the box or it has to be customized manually?
Can Prime somehow monitor BGP sessions whatsoever?
Monitoring BGP process is not possible via Prime Infrastructure as far as I know
you need a different NMS ,which is for service provider like Prime provisioning

As i mentioned before , you can monitor BGP in described way, but you can't connect any alarm or event. And also I expecting problem to add generic dashlet in to the custom dashboard. For now i don't have contract and can't ask TAC for adding generic dashlett and add alarms to custom MIB polling policies. So you can. go to Monitor- > monitoring policies
Clic ADD - select Custom MIB polling type of policy
select you devices, give a name to policy, select BGP4-MIB, select table bgpPeerTable, select desired parameters, test . click save and activate.
This is working but without dashlet, alarms and thresholds there is no sense :)
Can you create policy and create custom dashlet as in manual :
You must create at least one custom template (for example, see Creating Custom SNMP Polling Templates).
