Network Protocol Manager for BGP passes the results of its analysis in the form of notifications to the Global Manager. The Global Manager combines these notifications with the notifications from IP Availability Manager and then passes the notifications to the Global Console, where they are presented in a tabular form in the Notification Log Console.


In Network Protocol Manager, the range of Cisco BGP IPv6 notification is limited. This is because Cisco BGP IPv6 discovery and monitoring is CLI-based and not SNMP-based.

Each notification consists of a set of attributes that describe properties of the notification, such as:

  • Class

  • Name

  • Event

  • Source

  • Impact

    The value in the Name attribute is the display name of the notification. Appendix B, “BGP Topology Naming Conventions,” describes the naming formats used to create BGP object names.

    The numeric value for the Impact attribute indicates the impact (effect) of this notification on other objects in the managed network. The larger the numeric value, the larger the impact.

    The severity of a notification is reflected by its color, where red indicates the highest severity level.
