The Micro BGP Suite is now available
I am thrilled to announce that the very first version of the DoubleFourteen inaugural project, the Micro BGP suite (µbgpsuite for short – or ubgpsuite for differently Greek keyboards ☺), is now available!
Source code for this project is available at: https://git.doublefourteen.io/bgp/ubgpsuite
The Micro BGP Suite is an evolution over bgpscanner, originally developed under the Institute of Informatics and Telematics of the Italian National Research Council, see the forever unknown HISTORY file included with the project documentation for more obscurities about this project.
The Micro BGP suite includes:
- lonetix, a performance oriented static library for BGP and MRT data encoding/decoding written in C. I’d like to send a special thanks to my friend Vernal Liu for coming up with a name for this library (though, it originally meant Lorenzo’s Network library on Posix), and for his saint-like patience in listening to my ramblings all the time.
the very first utility using lonetix, an advanced replacement for bgpscanner,
an utility capable of lightning fast MRT dump decoding and filtering. This utility
is documented in its glorious
bgpgrep is the first utility taking advantage of
lonetix, but more tools
are underway to demonstrate the capabilities of its API.
Hint – for a convenient PDF version of the manual page, you can run:

Stay tuned for more news on this project, as I’m currently working on an article
