BMP Telemetry Adapter

The BMP telemetry adapter handles BMP statistics that the BMP parser receives and parses. 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, you can use the node’s metadata to specify a BGP ID to associate routers. If the parameter metaDataNodeLookup is not empty, it will be interpreted as a context:key metadata name, used to look up a node that has stored the queried BGP ID as a value in the specified key.
