I use a bunch of scripts plus a supervisory sqlite3 database process all 
injecting into quagga

Also aimed at attacker sources. I feed it with honeypots and live 
servers, hooked into fail2ban and using independent host scripts.

Not very sophisticated, the remotes use ssh executed commands to 
add/delete. I also setup a promiscuous ebgp RR so I can extend my 
umbrella to CPE with diverse connectivity.

Using flow data, that sounds like an interesting direction to take this 
into, so thank you!
