                  Monitoring BGP Parameters Using BMP
             draft-zhuang-grow-monitoring-bgp-parameters-00

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.  Without BMP, manual
   query is required if you want to know about BGP running status.

   This document provides the use cases that the BMP station can get the
   optional and default configure parameters 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].

   BMP: BGP Monitoring Protocol

   BMS: BGP Monitoring Station

   Initiation message: Reports to the monitoring server such information
   as the router vendor and its software version.

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 optional
   parameters[RFC5492], e.g., IPv4 Unicast, IPv4 Multicast, IPv6
   Unicast, and other Multiple-Protocol Extended Capabilities, Route
   Refresh Capability, Outbound Route Filtering Capability, Graceful
   Restart Capability, Support for 4-octet AS number capability etc.,
   and the different BGP may support a different number of different

   capabilities.  The network device configured with the BGP typically
   may not enable all optional capabilities supported in the configured
   BGP, but enable some currently required BGP optional capabilities as
   required for a current task.

   The BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP) introduces the availability of
   monitoring BGP running status, such as BGP peer relationship
   establishment and termination and route updates.  Without BMP, manual
   query is required if you want to know about BGP running status.  With
   BMP, a router can be connected to a monitoring station and configured
