peer route-limit (BGP)


The peer route-limit command sets the number of routes that can be received from the peer.

The undo peer route-limit command disables this function.

By default, the maximum number of routes received from the peer is not limited, but the maximum number cannot exceed the limit defined by the BGP routing table.


peer { group-name | ipv4-address | ipv6-address } route-limit limit [ percentage ] [ alert-only | idle-forever | idle-timeout minutes ]

undo peer { group-name | ipv4-address | ipv6-address } route-limit

Dear, may not explain me well,
I do not have problems in which an already established peer announces to me prefixes (peer route-limit) "The peer route-limit command sets the number of routes that can be received from the peer"
My problem is not being able to establish adjacency with a new neighbor "bgp 1234-> ipv4-family vpn-instance_> peer as-number 654321 “Error: The number of peers reached the upper limit.”

So, what I need to know and can not find, what is the number of neighbors (peers) I can establish at the ipv4-family level?

For IPv4 it should be 2K or 4K depending on the NE40 model. For vpnv4 i'm not sure.

the ipv4-family peer limit should share the 2K or 4K specifications, if you still have problem, suggest to contact huawei TAC to handle it
