is there any official or helpful clues about "get router info bgp paths" printouts? I've assumed the numbers in parentheses are AS-Path count, but am failing to reconcile those numbers with "Total number of prefixes" from "get router info bgp regexp".
Mine is like below but those numbers don't add up to the total number of prefixes. No ASN ones are for re-distributed connected routes but 3 less than the (17). Then the rest seems to be doubled, like 15 for "65528" instead of (30).
Cisco's operation is even more confusing. Below is from one of our MPLS routers so need to specify the VRF name but the "paths" command should show in the same way. The routes using the path is only four in this VRF. But they're spread to three memory addresses and the total is 9. Probably it includes some historical information not only the current ones in the BGP table. FGT's set don't have multiple memory addresses for one set of AS path. Probably simply because the way it stores AS path info for BGP prefixes is different from Cisco's.
So the FortiOS's command is definitely trying to duplicate (or mimic) what Cisco IOS is showing (I have access to a Juniper router, which doesn't have an equivalent command). But what exactly the number represent would be unclear until somebody gets some explanation from DEV side.
Acutally my original post was from FG40F with two VDOMs. But the second vdom doesn't have BGP setup. We have multi-VDOM units accommodating multiple customers. If it shows all of them, it would be less useful for us.
