I agree. nProbe is a great solution.  It scales and provides tons of metrics if you decide you need visibility  beyond BGP.

nProbe Pro is very good and worth the price for its proprietary high-speed ring PF_RING packet buffer implementation and plug-in support. If you can't afford the Pro version, the $50 embedded version lets you get familiar with outboard flow generation using a cheap EdgeOS device.
