BGP flapped but was not logged

So this morning I saw something odd.  Apparently my BGP neighborship between my CE router and ISP PE router flapped several times between last evening and this morning.  I see in the log where it flapped after 7pm last night and when it flapped around 6am this morning.  However when I did a show ip bgp sum I see the following...

 

Neighbor      V AS          MsgRcvd Msg Sent    TblVer  InQ  OutQ   Up/Down   State/PfxRcd
172.20.56.5 4 1803             1037          976    22186 0     0          07:22:33       224

 

But this would indicate the last flap was around 2am which does not appear in the log.  Also, while the flap at 6:21am does show in the log, I would assume the BGP Summary would have reflected that.

 

  Any ideas why the 2am flap didn't show in the logs and the 6:21am flapp isn't reflected in the BGP summary?

Re: BGP flapped but was not logged

bgp log-neighbor-changes

To enable logging of BGP neighbor resets, use the bgp log-neighbor-changes command in router configuration mode.

 Buffer logging:  level debugging

 

Logging levels should be correct to see the flap and I do see some.  Just not sure why the one in question was not caught.

Re: BGP flapped but was not logged

Hi Chad Parish,

 

Could you please share the output for the below commands. Since the earlier flaps are captured in the logs

looks like there is time zone difference. do you see any time differences, when the below commands are executed.

 

sh clock

sh hardware clock 

sh run | in time
