Log BGP peering changes to Solarwinds


I have created an alert on my Solarwinds that would be triggered by a syslog entry from my Checkpoints to tell me that a BGP peering had changed.

The problem is that i can see no way of getting the Checkpoints to produce a syslog message for BGP changes.

I have logging set to send to the external server at an Informational level.  I have ticked the boxes to get the Checkpoints to log BGP state transitions etc.  But i get no such logs..

I'm using R80.30


Thanks in advance.

What precise settings did you enable and where?
Also, did you disable the option to Log Routed Separately in Advanced Routing > Routing Options?

If I recall dynamic route logs go to /var/log/routed.log. I think tracing needs to be enabled though? 


set trace bgp x x on

something like that. 

I don't think that helps you though. A better solution might be extended net-snmpd to give you bgp peer information from running a shell script or something.
