Vyos monitoring BGP peers with SNMP

I am having trouble getting important information I need with SNMP while using newer versions of Vyos. Specifically I can not get BGP peer information while using Vyos 1.5-rolling. The information was available in Vyos 1.3.2. The BGP4-MIB file in Vyos 1.5-rolling is showing the same OID for the peer state but it gives an error “Error in packet
Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.”
It also does not show up while trying an snmpwalk.
Specifically I am needing to monitor BGP peer state.
I have been using the oid . where “XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX” is the IP address of the peer.
This works in v1.3.2 but not 1.5-rolling.

Welcome back after 9 years! :slight_smile:
I would suggest logging a ticket at vyos.dev if you have an account there, otherwise requesting one so you’re able to.

In 1.4 and higher the SNMP stuff for FRR is disabled by default. You need to enable it using:

set system frr snmp bgpd

Thank you so much, I will give it a try.

I’m not sure if I had to restart the router to get it working…

Yes, according to the message I received when commiting the command, you have to at least restart FRR or reboot the router.
