Idea for new features (bgp-daemon)
Hello Quagga-Developers,

During the daily use of the bgp-feature of zebra/quagga I've noticed that
two cool features are missing:

A) there should be an auto-refreshing "sh ip bgp summary" - it is really
annying to type it again and again and again...
Ok.. This is not cisco-compliant, but we could introduce "sh ip bgp su
reloading" or something like that.

B) it would be interesting to see which paths are actually running over a
specific peer. At the moment you have to do a "sh ip bgp" and (somehow) grep
it for your neighbors ip or do it on kernel-level. That's stupid...

C) Maybe a defined interface to monitoring-systems like nagios could be
really useful if you'd like to monitor if one of your session went down or
if you are receiving too less/many prefixes or so.

What do the others think ?

Regards,
Gunther

Getting a "top"-like interface would be useful in a lot of situations,
so please use a common keyword for it.

like:

sh ip bgp summary top
sh ip bgp neighbor x.x.x.x routes top
sh ip ospf neighbor top

and so on. That way you know what you'll get when you
? your way through the commands.

Hi Tony,

Yeah - top reminds me of auto-refreshing and is a good name but maybe
auto-refresh is a better name since
people know what it means :-)
Oh.. But top is shorter. What do the others think?

Anyway... We need this feature, agreed?

Sounds like a nice idea, but I fear what it will do on my box with 160
neighbors...
With <25 lines it's nice to see this kind of info, when it's (a lot) more,
it won't be.

What I'd like to see (and I'm somewhat working on right now) is applying
some
kind of filters on the output of 'show ip bgp summary', so I can filter on
stuff like:
* link state
* peer group
* number of prefixes received
* AS number
* IP number
etc.

Make it behave like regular top, with commands and all.
If you only have a 24 line terminal you only get 24 lines.

If we make it behave like top we can simply add some commands to
regexp the output, only show x lines, sort in different orders
and so on.

Implement it in a nice way so it's easy to add views anywhere
it would be useful, maybe even use existing top code.

Hi Teun,

You are right.
It would be especially cool if one could "grep" and so.

how about making use of the snmp smux capability of bgpd and using
some existing snmp app to poll for neighbour status (eg mrtg)?

seems what the person wants can already be done - if he looks beyond
the bgpd vty.

I'll double that.

Building a simple script to provide top-like functionality (including
filtering, paging, etc), at any frequency, is much simpler, and IMO it's
way more natural to reside outside bgpd/ospfd/anyd. Paul suggested SNMP,
I'd say it's even simpler to do with vty-parsers, like Tcl/Expect.

(If you'd like that, I think I can provide a general framework for this
kind of functionality.)

And, I wouldn't hurry to extend the VTY functionality in such manner.

Re: Idea for new features (bgp-daemon) [ In reply to ]
It was proposed before on zebra mailing list to have another column in
the output of "show ip bgp summary" with the description of the
neighbor. I think this is useful and trivial to implement.

Yes, this is quite easy to implement. It's one of the things I've been
toying with. Personally, I'd like to see something similar, but I'd like
to see the peer-group in which a neighbor is placed.

Re: AW: Re: Idea for new features (bgp-daemon) [ In reply to ]
Paul, Gilad,

I think that we should start thinking of devices that run quagga as
appliances, which means we should assume the user only has access to the
CLI. Anything that will assist with trouble shooting and verification of
operation should be availble via the CLI.

With that in mind I think I would find a 'auto-refresh' option
useful when I'm in the midst of trouble shooting.

Juniper and Extreme have something like this (only for specific commands)
and it comes in very handy.

Sure, no problem. How would you do 'auto-refresh' with Cisco? Naturally,
you'd write (or otherwise get your hands on) some Tcl/Expect script,
that remotely accesses you box and does exactly that: IMO, it's more
flexible and adjustable, you could port your monitored data to whatever
form you like, and so on. I'm not so sure it has to be part of the CLI.

(Note, that this is totally departed from debugging messages, which are
triggered events -- you're talking about some polling mechanism,
top-like, right?)

Don't know about those. At least for what was described in this thread,
I don't think this extension to vty provides something you couldn't get
right now, and quite easily. Therefore I doubt it's being worthwhile
(but of course, I'm not a user, so take this limited).

Re: Idea for new features (bgp-daemon) [ In reply to ]
Then here it is. It adds a "Description/Peer-group" column to "sh ip bgp
su".

Hmm... if you're still fixing a problem, you're not needing
auto-refresh. Auto-refresh implies you've gotten to the "i think i've
fixed it, lets observe" stage, at which point you presumably have
routing working to the website where your mrtg/some-other-snmp-thingy
lives.

anyway, doing auto-refresh in vty would be difficult, and ugly.

OTOH, doing it in a client would be easier. Eg vtysh.

The best way to do this, in my view - would be to hack the vty and parser
to allow something like 'repeat n show ip bgp sum' where n is the period in
seconds perhaps. Perhaps no question mark surfing after the 'repeat' as
adding that would be hard, I imagine. Only allow non-config commands.

Can I make the suggestion that the existing reports be left alone, and
if extra information is required, it's put into a new report?

Perhaps:

Router> show ip bgp summary
and
Router> show ip bgp extended-summary

would do in this particular case.

The reason I'd like to see things done this way is that I've got a
pile of code that reads these reports, and I'd rather not be
constantly chasing Quagga's output formats.

That was my idea as well. Another way to do it would be:

"show ip bgp summary" shows you the 'normal' summary
"show ip bgp summary extended" shows you extra info like descriptions,
peergroups, etc.

I also want to make a _really_ short summary at the end, indicating the
number of neighbors per state (x neighbors in established, y active, z
connect, etc). This is very on boxes with lots of neighbors (like mine).

I've been testing some filters too, pretty naive stuff for now, no fancy
regexp stuff (still got to look into that), things like:

show ip bgp summary state neq established (show all neighbors not in
state 'established')
show ip bgp summary prefixes eq 0 (show all neighbors sending me 0
prefixes)

err.. is your patch reversed? it seems to want to remove a
Description column :)

seems a good idea - but will it still all fit within a 80 char wide
terminal?

Sounds puzzling to me: does this mean that vty is blocked during those
'repeat' sessions? (probably so, otherwise you can't stop those chains,
but OTOH you wouldn't want it to block the whole process) How do you
break a chain of repeated commands? How do you cope with paging? (if at
all, probably not I guess, but that means extra hacking)

I would say, if this is really a nice-to-have feature, to open a new
category of 'debug' command, such that call for an initiated report
every x seconds. This way, it's asynchronuous by most means (your vty
isn't blocked, it just triggers a repeated timer event and returns
control to you), your process keeps running as usual, the only
difference is that every once in a while you get a mass of report lines.
Minimal hacking required. (The output stream needs to be considered
here, though, probably it will be the logfile, as any other debug
message, but then again this could be set to be the stdout.)

That is assuming I have remote access to the box when I'm doing
trouble shooting. If the network is melting down due to BGP I may have to
do the 'telnet hop' to get to the problem router. Once there, and I'm
on the CLI, I want all of the tools at my disposal. An 'auto-refresh' of
some BGP commands (or other 'show' commands) might be useful.

Reverse diff'ing :-) at least that's what it looks like...

No, it will definately never fit in a 80 char wide terminal.
It'll depend on how long the descriptions are, but the current output
already is 80 chars wide.

Re: Idea for new features (bgp-daemon) [ In reply to ]
I'll try not to reverse at the next diff :-D
I think that "show ip bgp summary extended" will be more appropiate -
I'm working on it.
Unfortunately, as Teun said, the current output is already 80 chars wide.
