You can get the received routes via SNMP. I've done this manually on
occasion for the purposes of doing "what-if" analysis of potential
traffic plans - take a dump of all available external routes via SNMP,
apply to that the proposed policy with regard to selecting the best
route, then correlate the resulting route choices with known traffic
statistics to determine the resulting utilisation levels of each
external link. This has proven useful in a number of situations where
radical changes to external routing were being made, to avoid
unexpectedly overloading particular links.
