Hi Freddy,

As Paul has mentioned, you could check the David's project - SIR, look
at his presentation:

We've also developed a platform for the BGP monitoring and routing
optimization which could solve your problem. It would inject to the
border routers only TOP X prefixes with which you exchange most of the
traffic. The added value would be that route orders point to best
performing transit (low latency, 0 packet loss) per distant prefix.

If you are interested to know more about our software please contact me
