BGP neighbor UP/DOWN time is different with the show loggin. How can it be possible ?

Hello Community,

We got one notification from our monitoring tool that BGP peer is down. Immediately I jumped in the problem and captured some logs. Where "show logging" command show BGP Neighbor went down few minutes back, though "show ip bgp summary" shows it's down since 1 week and 1 day. How can it be possible ??

Automatically Neighbor came up after 40+ minutes. Please share some info.

We're checking for RFO with provider.

It says the peer closed the session, so I would be waiting for an answer to come back from them.

That's correct buddy, but my question was, how come BGP neighbour-ship is showing it's down since more than a week ?? though it's went down few minutes ago ?

I'm not sure.  I think what it is saying is how long it has been (or rather was) up.  Not how long it has been down.

Ok, No worries. But have you ever seen this kind of situation ?

With BGP neighbours going down?  Sure.  People have circuit issues, router issues, software issues, but 90% of the time - human issues.

No No. Sorry I didn't make it clear.

What I meant was, situation like BGP just went down (say 5-10 minutes back as per logs in `show logging` command but it's shows that particular neighbor is down since weeks in `show ip bgp neighbor` command. though it was up 15 minutes ago.

I'm not sure sorry.  If the router has the correct time on it, I would trust the logged messages over the output of the BGP neighbour summary.
