BMP Telemetry Adapter

The BMP telemetry adapter handles BMP statistics received and parsed by the BMP Parser. Statistics received from the router are associated as performance data with that router. The router must exist as a regular node in Horizon.

Horizon uses the IP address exported in BMP messages to associate a router with the appropriate Horizon node. In addition, the node’s metadata can be used to specify a BGP ID, which will be used to associate routers. If the parameter metaDataNodeLookup is not empty, it will be interpreted as a context:key metadata name, which will be used to look up a node that has stored the queried BGP ID as a value in the specified key.
