In rare scenarios involving large AS paths, there may be a loss of BGP adjacency Technical Level
  • In rare scenarios after upgrade, BGP route is not propogated.

  • On Gaia OS, one of the neighbor routers may complain about malformed message, adjacency is also flapping to down.

  • Similar messages can be seen in neighbor's syslog:

The path attributes (of routes sent via BGP) are not being recognized by peer in certain circumstances related to the AS_PATH attribute size.  This can cause the receiving system to reject the route and close the BGP connection, in turn removing BGP routes.
