BGP BFD on VE

Does BFD work for BGP if you are peering on a VE interface?  I can't seem to get it to work and vaguely recall that other vendors will not allow this.  And, an MLX won't do sub-ints so maybe I'm out of luck.

Re: BGP BFD on VE

This does work on CER/XMRs

 

Define bfd globally within bgp, then within the neighbor with fail-over bfd-enable then afterwards within the virtual interface the timers, afterwards reset the bgp session and once established you'll be able to see the show bfd neighbor showing in up state.
