Why do our BGP neighbors reset when PacketShaper is rebooted
Question: When we reset our PacketShaper device, we noticed that our BGP neighbors, using the link also reset.
Anwser: When the PacketShaper resets, there will be a short time where the unit will not bypass, and link will be lost. This should only last for a few brief seconds.
Note: this behavior of BGP neighbors resetting are for topologies where the PacketShaper sits between 2 BGP peers. To avoid this issue, our recommendation is to place a switch between the PS device
and the inside BGP router (internal) and turned off < no bgp fast-external-fallover> on both of the routers.
