Monitoring BGP in Zabbix

I’ll give an example of a simple check whether something is running on TCP port 179 which uses BGP.

Create the following data item with the name Zabbix in the new Zabbix template or right in the network node “Template App BGP Service” (where 192.168.10.2 is the address of the host on which the performance of the BGP is checked):

Name: BGP service is running
Type: Zabbix agent
Key: net.tcp.service[tcp,192.168.10.2,179]
Type of information: Numeric (positive integer)
Data type: Decimal
Displaying the value: Service state

If the data element reports 0, then BGP does not work, or the port is closed, if 1 is OK.

Accordingly, we will add a trigger that will notify about the idle BGP:

Name: BGP does not work on {HOST.NAME}
Expression: {Template App BGP Service:net.tcp.service[tcp,192.168.10.2,179].max(#3)}=0

Все.
