GIX – Looking Glass

GIXLG is a looking glass implementation which uses ExaBGP. Unlike many other looking glasses, which usually use a shell access to routers or BGP daemons like Quagga or Bird, GIXLG pushes all received prefixes to a MySQL database. This allows for further analysis BGP data by a 3rd party software.

The source code of GIXLG is available as a GitHub repository here.
