The Global Manager imports instances of the following topology object types from Network Protocol Manager for BGP:

  • AutonomousSystem

  • BGPService

  • BGPSession

  • BGPSessionGroup

  • SystemRedundancyGroup

  • UnitaryComputerSystem (Router, for example)

    Chapter 3, BGP Objects and their Failures, provides descriptions of AutonomousSystem, BGPService, BGPSession, and SystemRedundancyGroup. The VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Concepts Guide provides a description of UnitaryComputerSystem and the IP data model.

    The Global Manager combines this topology with the underlying physical-transport topology imported from IP Availability Manager.
