message may cause some confusion. I'm wondering if these two statements are

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

(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

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
