APIs

The BGPStream framework includes two programming APIs for accessing a stream of BGP data from within other programs: libBGPStream, a C API, and PyBGPStream a Python API.

libBGPStream

libBGPStream is the core of the BGPStream framework; all tools, as well as the Python bindings use libBGPStream. libBGPStream is written in C, making it very efficient. The API has also been designed to be as simple as possible.

PyBGPStream

PyBGPStream is our Python bindings to the libBGPStream C API. It offers the same functionality (and much of the same efficiency) as the C API, but also the flexibility of a Python module, allowing rapid prototyping and integration.
