“Hey Fish, how good are you at BFD? None of my BFD neighbors will come up.”
Two simple sentences and I am “hooked.” I love troubleshooting! Troubleshooting is just a blast for me! It’s like being a Network Detective trying to figure out “whodunit”
As I sit down in front of the CLI and the diagram, I ask, “What is the routing protocol the BFD is for?” The answer, admittedly, makes my heart sink a little. This isn’t just “BFD”, this is BFD for FabricPath ISIS. I’m in no way, shape, or form a FabricPath subject matter expert. I don’t think I’m going to be able to help them. But I’ll try.
Troubleshooting is an art for sure. Watching someone like Fish talk through her process is enlightening. And a fun journey to boot!
