For what its worth, we use OpenBGP's LG on OpenBSD. It peers "read-only"
with our Internet Gateway routers and Route Reflectors.

- Probably one of, if not the most secure solution.
- No logging at all on routers themselves.
- By simple deduction you get to see the best active route on all routers.

- You don't get to see all routes on all routers.
- You can't traceroute or ping from each routers (since you don't log to
these routers).

Disadvantages are not a big deal as we use other tools a well.

Another solution is to virtualize these servers, one per router, to get
even better view.

So far, no complaints. I like it runs on OpenBSD to be honest.
