Greetings,

I'm serving as the editor of the current BGP-4 MIB.  We're trying to
push the MIB through standards.  Last call has been issued.

The MIB, as currently documented includes the following four objects:                                   
bgpPeerInUpdates                                                              
bgpPeerOutUpdates                                                             
bgpPeerInTotalMessages                                                        
bgpPeerOutTotalMessages                                                       
                                                                              
Each of these objects has the following clause, and has had it for            
some time:                                                                    
                                                                              
: This object should be initialized to zero (0) when the connection           
: is established.                                                             

This is, for at least two major implementations, not the observed
behavior.

What is your expectations for these objects in the MIB.
The MIB in question is at:

http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-idr-bgp4-mib-11.txt

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Note also: The BGP Traps have changed.  This may affect your SNMP
monitoring stations.
