Description (partial)

BFD dampening configured with custom timers causes unexpected behavior with BGP (BGP session is shown established but it is actually not as only one of the peers sends an Open message and no updates are exchanged).

Log message:

*Jul 17 16:23:40.533: %BGP-6-MSGDUMP_LIMIT: unsupported or mal-formatted message received from

BFD dampening custom timers (e.g.dampening 30 20 900 210).

If custom timers are used, BGP is shown as established, however, no routes are exchanged. 
In a packet capture can be seen only one of the peers is sending Open message.

Default bfd dampening timers:
dampening 3 1500 3000 5
