Many researchers and network operators wish to have access to the contents of routers' BGP Routing Information Bases (RIBs) as well as a view of protocol updates the router is receiving. This monitoring task cannot be realized by standard protocol mechanisms. Prior to the introduction of BMP, this data could only be obtained through screen scraping.

                      BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP)


   This document defines the BGP Monitoring Protocol (BMP), which can be    used to monitor BGP sessions.  BMP is intended to provide a    convenient interface for obtaining route views.  Prior to the    introduction of BMP, screen scraping was the most commonly used    approach to obtaining such views.  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.
