you might want to start with a good monitoring software like Argus - http://argus.tcp4me.com/


Group "Upstream Connections" {
  Group "T3 to whomever" {
    Service Ping {
      hostname: far-side.example.net
    }
    Service UDP/SNMP {
      eqvalue: 6
      label: BGP
      uname: BGP
      oid:   .1.3.6.1.2.1.15.3.1.2.x.x.x.x
      hostname: your-router.example.net
    }
  }
  Group "T3 to whomever2" {
    Service Ping {
      hostname: far-other-side.example.net
    }
    Service UDP/SNMP {
      eqvalue: 6
      label: BGP
      uname: BGP
      oid:   .1.3.6.1.2.1.15.3.1.2.x.x.x.x
      hostname: your-router.example.net
    }
  }
}

something like that will alert you when BGP is anything other than happy. your oid may vary. use snmpwalk to help.

then you could also add:
 Service Prog {
   frequency: 1800
   command: chkbgp.pl -a <ASN> -n <network> -r <route_server>
   nexepect: evil
 }
