                         draft-ietf-grow-bmp-08

Abstract

   This document defines a protocol, BMP, which can be used to monitor
   BGP sessions.  BMP is intended to provide a more convenient interface
   for obtaining route views for research purpose than the screen-
   scraping approach in common use today.  The design goals are to keep
   BMP simple, useful, easily implemented, and minimally service-
   affecting.  BMP is not suitable for use as a routing protocol.
