BGP Monitoring — Route Monitoring
The Internet includes tens of thousands of autonomously operated networks (Autonomous Systems). Human error and malicious exploits on Internet routing can cause chronic interruptions and sudden outages that impact application access and service delivery. Internet routing signals are also commonly used to trigger on demand DDoS mitigation services when under attack. Monitoring of the Border Gateway Protocol or BGP, the routing protocol that stitches the Internet together as BGP routes, is important to ensuring a highly available network service and optimal digital experience for users.
