Hi,

> This begins a 2 week WG Last Call for draft-ietf-idr-shutdown-02.txt (1/17/2017 to 1/31/2017).  Section 7 of this document lists the implementations that have been created for this BGP functionality.   These include: ExaBGP, pmacct, OpenBGPD, Wireshark (packet analyzer), and tcpdump

Support this as a useful tool, especially for networks who have not progressed fully down the full automation path yet and have to rely on manual view and intervention of session events. With operator hat on UTF8 seems sensible.
