Recently NTT investigated how to best monitor the visibility of our
own and our subsidiaries’ IP resources in the BGP Default-Free Zone.
We were specifically looking how to get near real-time alerts funneled
into an actionable pipeline for our NOC & Operations department when
BGP hijacks happen.
Previously we relied on a commercial “BGP Monitoring as a Service”
offering, but with the advent of RIPE NCC’s “RIS Live” streaming API
 we saw greater potential for a self-hosted approach designed
specifically for custom integrations with various business processes.
We decided to write our own tool “BGPalerter” and share the source
code with the Internet community.
BGPalerter allows operators to specify in great detail how to
distribute meaningful information from the firehose from various BGP
data sources (we call them “connectors”), through data processors
(called “monitors”), finally outputted through “reports” into whatever
mechanism is appropriate (Slack, IRC, email, or a call to your
ticketing system’s API).
The source code is available on Github, under a liberal open source
license to foster community collaboration:
If you wish to contribute to the project, please use Github’s “issues”
or “pull request” features. Any help is welcome! We’d love suggestions
for new features, updates to the documentation, help with setting up a
CI regression testing pipeline, or packaging for common platforms.

Excellent, now I don't have to write it myself. Looking forward to
testing. Thanks for sharing the fruits of your labor with the community.
