BMP Peer Status Adapter
The BMP peer status adapter creates events for peer status changes. It handles BMP Peer Up and Down messages that the BMP Parser receives and parses, and converts to Horizon events. Horizon associates the created events with the router sending the messages. This router must exist as regular node in Horizon.
The events are called
Horizon uses the IP address exporting BMP messages to associate a router with the particular Horizon node.
In addition, the node’s metadata can specify a BGP ID, which will then 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 lookup a node that has stored the queried BGP ID as a value in exactly this key.
