Re: [GROW] Last Call: <draft-ietf-grow-bmp-15.txt> (BGP Monitoring Protocol) to Proposed Standard

Saying that there is no initialization but then talking about a initiation
message may cause some confusion. I'm wondering if these two statements are
conflicting. Are there any initialization messages in a BMP session?

   Once a connection is established, the router sends messages over it.
   There is no initialization or handshaking phase, messages are simply
   sent as soon as the connection is established.

Once the session is up, the
   router begins to send BMP messages.  It MUST begin by sending an
   Initiation message.

The IESG has received a request from the Global Routing Operations WG
(grow) to consider the following document:
- 'BGP Monitoring Protocol'
  <draft-ietf-grow-bmp-15.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org mailing lists by 2015-09-15. Exceptionally, comments 
may be
sent to iesg(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This document defines a protocol, BMP, that can be used to monitor
   BGP sessions.  BMP is intended to provide a convenient interface for
   obtaining route views.  Prior to introduction of BMP, screen-scraping
   was the most commonly-used approach to obtaining such views.  The
   design goals are to keep BMP simple, useful, easily implemented, and
   minimally service-affecting.  BMP is not suitable for use as a
   routing protocol.
