configure bgp delete aggregate-address

configure bgp delete aggregate-address {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4-multicast |ipv6-unicast | ipv6-multicast]} [ ipaddress/masklength | all]


Deletes one or all BGP aggregated routes.

Syntax Description

address-family Specifies an IPv4 or IPv6 unicast or multicast address family.
ipaddress/masklength Specifies an IP network address and netmask length.
all Specifies all aggregated routes in the specified address family. If you do not specify an address family, all aggregated routes in all address families are deleted.



Usage Guidelines

Route aggregation is the process of combining the characteristics of several routes so that they are advertised as a single route. Aggregation reduces the amount of information that a BGP speaker must store and exchange with other BGP speakers. Reducing the information that is stored and exchanged also reduces the size of the routing table.

If you do not specify an address family, this command applies to the IPv4 unicast address family. To apply this command to an address family other than the IPv4 unicast address family, you must specify the address family.



If the specified address is an IPv4 address, an IPv4 address family must be specified with the command. If the specified address is an IPv6 address, an IPv6 address family must be specified with the command.


The following command deletes a BGP aggregate route:

configure bgp delete aggregate-address
