BGPHist is a tool that able to get MP-BGP updates, decode it, and write to the backend storage for logging and monitoring purposes.
It support not only internet routes, but also these address families:
1. ipv4 multicast
2. ipv4 labeled unicast
3. vpnv4 unicast
4. ipv6 unicast
5. ipv6 labeled unicast
6. vpnv6 unicast
7. l2vpn vpls-vpws
8. ipv4 mvpn

Backend storages supported - text output, MySQL database and Oracle database.
For MySql backend there is also a simple PHP frontend.
Possible usages:
1. Monitor and log ISP's customers activity for Internet and VPNs.
2. Use as a passive BGP looking glass for all possible VPNs and Internet.
3. Backend for some external monitoring and accounting system.

BGPHist should be connected to the BGP route reflector as a client to get all routing updates.
It does not have code to generate BGP update messages, it's only a listener.
