exabgp resource installs and configures ExaBGP. It does not create
an ExaBGP service. You will need to handle this separately via your service
resource of choice. If you want an example of such a service setup, look at
test/cookbooks folder for some example recipes.
:install– Install and configure ExaBGP. (default)
instance– Name of the ExaBGP installation. If different than the name parameter of the resource. If it is set to false, it will not use the name parameter when naming the instance. This is for backward compatibility with the older version of this cookbook where you may be running an install from
package_version– Which version of the python package to install, defaults to the `node['exabgp']['package_version'] attribute.
cookbook– Which cookbook to look for the exabgp.conf.erb template
variables– Pass template variables in much like a template resource
install_type– Supports both :package and :source installations. Defaults to :package via python pip. If you'd like to support more installation options, send in a pull request.
