Router logs

These are router logs for all the Cloud Router connections.

The information that is logged and how it is presented varies depending on the device. Common log messages are BGP neighbor state changes. For example:

State changed from OpenConfirm to Established for AS number <ASN>, event: RecvKeepAlive

and

State changed from Established to Idle for AS number <ASN>, event: Stop

NOTE: If the state changes to Down with a “administrative shutdown” notice, this means the change was enacted by the BGP neighbor (the cloud service provider). Check their notifications for information about possible maintenance activities. See BGP Administrative Shutdown Communication.
