We present BGPStream, an open-source software frame-work for the analysis of both historical and real-Time Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) measurement data. Although BGP is a crucial operational component of the Internet infrastructure, and is the subject of research in the areas of Internet performance, security, topol-ogy, protocols, economics, etc., there is no efficient way of processing large amounts of distributed and/or live BGP measurement data. BGPStream fills this gap, en-abling efficient investigation of events, rapid prototyp-ing, and building complex tools and large-scale monitor-ing applications (e.g., detection of connectivity disrup-tions or BGP hijacking attacks). We discuss the goals and architecture of BGPStream. We apply the compo-nents of the framework to different scenarios, and we describe the development and deployment of complex services for global Internet monitoring that we built on top of it.
