We are using Extended Unified Configuration Management Framework for  FRR-BGP.


The below flag is defined and true

DEVICE_METADATA.localhost.frr_mgmt_framework_config, hence FRR-BGP docker supervisord starts frrcfgd instead of bgpcfgd.


Processes such as bgpd, ospfd, staticd etc are started and continue running inside FRR docker, however frrcfgd process is up and running

 only initially and then it exits. While frrcfgd process is dead, the  BGP protocol functionality appears to be fine, so that it can do peer

establishment, route redistribute etc.

Can someone please explain if frrcfgd process should be continuously running like other FRR process as above? If not will it affect any functionality?


At least with frrcfgd not running, "show system-health detail"  shows it's status as not ok as shown below.


root@sonic:/home/admin# show system-health detail
