From the Nanog45 presentation:
- BMP provides all paths.
- Peer identity (address, BGP Identifier, RD if applicable,AS number)
- Time stamp (when route or route withdrawal was received, up to microsecond granularity)
- statistics reporting
WAE 6.x does not currently support BGP Monitoring Protocol.
WAE 7.x has not been GA released at the current time, so we cannot formally comment.
Both WAE 6 and 7 support BGP-LS for topology awareness in near real time in order to capture IGP state changes as quickly as possible.
