I think the OP wanted something for 'internal route monitoring' ...
since he's from DeVry I suspect it's to monitor things on DeVry's
internal WAN which probably don't show in the global table.

That said, you COULD have rancid (or abuse rancid) pull rib-dumps each
'period' and index those into something that alerted on large diff's
(or alerted if some critical bits were missing).  Or have a quagga box
peer with some number of internal devices, log update messages, alert
on withdrawal of critical bits.

(I don't know of any COTS tools that do this, sorry)
