Use the BGP Feeds section of the Open Connect Partner Portal to monitor the state of the BGP sessions and announcements that you have configured between your routers and the Netflix Open Connect Appliances in your network.
For more details on how BGP announcements are used, see the information about appliance routing and steering via BGP on the Open Connect website.
Before you start
Before you modify the BGP session for an OCA, you should drain the appliance of any streaming sessions. For more information, see this related article: Draining and disabling appliances.
Viewing and Configuring BGP Sessions
On the BGP Sessions page, you can view and modify the BGP sessions that are configured for each appliance in your network.
To modify a BGP session, open the configuration screen and click BGP Session Configuration (IPv4 or IPv6) from the drop down menu of each appliance.
- Modifying the configuration of an already-established BGP session can result in traffic changes. Because your BGP session configuration is critical to the operational success of your Open Connect Appliances, be extremely careful when making any changes.
- It can take up to 20 minutes for BGP session changes to be applied to the appliance.
The configuration form contains help text that explains the settings and their implications. As you make changes in the form, the dynamic helper diagram next to the form changes to help you visualize the Open Connect Appliance side of the configuration (shaded in red at the top of the diagram) and the ISP side of the configuration.
