Technical Summary The IDR working group is revising the BGP-4 specifications to add additional error handling per the Grow Working Group’s request in draft- grow-ops-reqs-for-bgp-error-handling-02. This draft defines operational sub- codes for the BGP Finite State Machine Error that provide more information to aid network operators in diagnosing BGP FSM issues and correlating network events. Working Group Summary The document is a product of the IDR working group. The document has working group consensus, and it is part of the IDR work in revising BGP error handling in response to GROW’s request. Document Quality The document provides the necessary specification for implementers to use implement the additional error processing by providing a description of when to send the error codes (usage, section 3), and what error codes to send (Definition of error codes, section 2). This BGP feature has been implemented in two separate implementation. Personnel Susan Hares is the document shepherd. Stewart Bryant is the responsible Area Director.
