BGPD(8) Version 0.88 BGPD(8)
bgpd - a BGPv4, BGPv4+, BGPv4- routing engine for use with Zebra
bgpd [ -dhpPv ] [ -f config-file ] [ -i pid-file ] [ -p bgp-port-number ] [
--bgp_port=port-number ] [ -P vty-port-number ]
bgpd is a routing component that works with the zebra routing engine.
Runs in daemon mode, forking and exiting from tty.
-f, --config-file config-file
Specifies the config file to use for startup. If not specified this option will
likely default to /usr/local/etc/bgpd.conf.
A brief message.
-i, --pid_file pid-file
When bgpd starts its process idenifier is written to pid-file. The init system
uses the recorded PID to stop or restart bgpd. The likely default is
Set the port that bgpd will listen to for bgp data.
-P, --vty_port port-number
Specify the port that the bgpd VTY will listen on. This defaults to 2605, as speci-
fied in /etc/services.
When the program terminates, retain routes added by bgpd.
Print the version and exit.

If the bgpd process is config'd to output logs to a file, then you will find this
file in the directory where you started bgpd.
This man page is intended as a quick reference for command line options, and for config
file commands. The definitive document is the Info file zebra.
The bgpd process may log to standard output, to a VTY, to a log file, or through syslog to
the system logs. bgpd supports many debugging options, see the Info file, or the source
