EEM send UDP broadcast

nbroughton
Beginner

I need an "action" statement that will send a UDP broadcast to port 1001 with a message of "restart". I have the rest of the EEM script created fine. I cannot seem to figure out how to do this. I have a BGP route that changes every once in a while and when it does the application seems to stop functioning correctly. A restart of the application fixes the issue. The vendor says that if I can send the UDP broadcast then he can program it to see the broadcast and restart iteself. I have created an EEM script that sees the syslog "%BGP-5-ADJCHANGE:" and currently sends an email. BUt we have to manually restart the app. If this is not possible within EEM could it be done with a TCL script and the EEM call the TCL script?

I appreciate any words of wisdom. Thank you in advance.

EEM currently does not support UDP.  Yes, a tclsh called from EEM could do this assuming you have a new enough IOS.  The UDP extension is documented at
