AGGREGATOR is an optional transitive attribute of length 6.
The attribute contains the last AS number that formed the
aggregate route (encoded as 2 octets), followed by the IP
address of the BGP speaker that formed the aggregate route
(encoded as 4 octets). Usage of this attribute is described
And what to do with 4-byte AS-numbers then? That would explain the 8 bytes.
