Do you know any special software for monitoring BGP peers, prefixes, log their failures, prefixes amount and etc? (Cisco)

( Not zabbix, nagios and etc, i know that you can write plugins or work with snmp, but I am searching for already written software )

Likewise, we monitor..

  • Prefixes received by our speakers to a given threshold.
  • Externally observed abnormalities: IS Alarms (was MyASN), BGPmon, Renesys.

SNMP is a really easy implemention for the former and probably the right road to go down.


BGPmon.net may be what you are looking for--I use it, and it is fantastic.

"BGP monitoring and analyzer tool"



  • Yes, a very good tool but I do not think it addresses the OP problem.

Sadly, all we did was write a Nagios SNMP plugin to check BGP peers were up and that they were advertising the number of routes we were expecting by checking it was between a high and low number (about ±10% of the advertised routes at the time we wrote the check).
