The "SNMP - Routing" probe launched for BGP Routers causing OOM errors on the MID Server.

Steps to Reproduce

Run discovery on any BGP router and see that 'SNMP - routing' is being triggered.


NOTE: This workaround is for Probe based discovery of IP Router. For Pattern based discovery, it's being addressed in PRB1352387

This problem is under review and targeted to be fixed in a future release. To receive notifications when more information becomes available, subscribe to this Known Error article by clicking the Subscribe button at the top right of this form.

The workaround consists in editing the SNMP - Classify sensor:

- after the following line:

capabilities['block_router_exploration'] = 'false';

- add the following code block:

var blockBGP = gs.getProperty('glide.discovery.bgp_router_disable', 'true') == 'true';
if (blockBGP && isBGP())
capabilities['block_router_exploration'] = 'true';

function isBGP(){
var bgpVersion = snmp.getOIDText( oid_mib2 + 'bgp.' + 'bgpVersion' );
var bgpLocalASN = snmp.getOIDText( oid_mib2 + 'bgp.' + 'bgpLocalAs' );
var bgpID = snmp.getOIDText( oid_mib2 + 'bgp.' + 'bgpIdentifier' );
return (JSUtil.notNil(bgpVersion) && bgpLocalASN != '0' && bgpID != '');
