BGP/route based VPN - routed restarts

Hello,

We never used BGP on gaia and wanted to get some insight from you.  I've configured tunnels and BGP with AWS according to sk108958. The interesting issue I noticed is whenever I do some change in gaia. Let say, adding additional inbound route filter or even adding some static route on the gateway I get routed refreshed/restarted and thus making BGP sessions go down incuring downtime for a brief moment. Is this the way it works?

Do you have BGP Graceful Restart enabled?

No, I don't have it enabled. Default setting is "off", so I just followed the procedure in SK when I was configuring.

I think I had some article from AWS telling something in the lines "we do support graceful restart feature, but do not recommend using it", but unfortunately I can't find that article anymore. But anyway, worth trying as this is very inconvenient if each time routes are lost.

Sort of... I don't like how R80.20 works in general on that gateway. Hopefully will move soon to R80.40 to see if it is any better.
