                 Monitoring BGP Capabilities Using BMP
            draft-zhuang-grow-monitoring-bgp-capabilities-01

Abstract

   The BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP) [RFC7854] is designed to monitor
   BGP [RFC4271] running status, such as BGP peer relationship
   establishment and termination and route updates.

   This document provides a use case that the BMP station can get all
   BGP capability information of the monitored network device via BMP.

Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

1.  Terminology

   This memo makes use of the terms defined in [RFC7854].

   Virtual Peer: A virtual BGP speaker connecting to the network device

   BMP: BGP Monitoring Protocol

   BMS: BGP Monitoring Station

2.  Introduction

   The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a dynamic routing protocol
   operating on an Autonomous System (AS) and typically configured on a
   network device.  The BGP typically can support a number of
   capabilities, e.g., IPv4 Unicast, IPv4 Multicast, IPv6 Unicast, and
   other multiple-protocol extended capabilities, and the different BGP
   may support a different number of different capabilities.  The
   network device configured with the BGP typically may not enable all
   capabilities supported in the configured BGP, but enable some
   currently required BGP capabilities as required for a current task.
