Network Protocol Manager for BGP builds a data model of the discovered BGP topology objects in its domain. The model, shown in BGP data model, represents the BGP objects and certain network objects imported from IP Availability Manager, their relationships, and their connections.

The BGP objects are represented as instances of the following domaon manager object classes:

  • AutonomousSystem

  • BGPService

  • BGPProtocolEndpoint

  • BGPSession

  • BGPSessionGroup

    The Network Protocol Manager Discovery Guide Supplement provides more information about the BGP data model. The Common Information Model (ICIM) 1.11 Reference for Non-Service Assurance Manager Productsprovides descriptions of domain manager classes, relationships, and connections.
