Graphing Peering

If you're already using MRTG, hopefully you're at least passingly familiar 
with perl and SNMP. If so, you can do some hackery to identify your BGP 
peer interfaces automatically and then use it to reference existing 
interface graphs.

Take a peek in the BGP4 mib, specifically at the BgpPeerEntry subtree. You 
may need to do some correlation inside the ifTable or maybe even ifX, 
depending on platform and implementation, to correctly identify the 
interface of your peer.
