We are going to be trying ThousandEyes...  They provide flexible alerting rules for various BGP issues and their visualization is excellent, kind of like BGPlay on steroids...

Anyone have recommendations for an alternative service that works like bgpmon (external reachability/peer monitoring, route hijack alerts, etc)?  Since their OpenDNS acquisition, I’ve found the service not working reliably, as in I receive no alerts even when I’m intentionally taking one of our peers offline, and after two attempts to find out why this is, I receive no response, so it seems support is now broken as well.
