hi
i currently try to use exabgp with api to announce / withdraw routes. Its working but i need the response from exbgp process if adding / withdrawing was successfull or failed. How do i manage to do this? Thank you in advance. Version: ExaBGP : master-d8b7cd24e835b9dabfddc87d74e0161921165a50

You have no way to know what the peer does with your route (i.e. : if another more prefereable route, like static, exists, your announcement will be ignored). Once uppon a time, as long as the TCP session was up and you did not get any notification message, you could be sure that the announcement was fine, but nowdays with the latest RFC it could have been ignored and you have no real way to know but to ask your peer for its route from another router-id and see if the announcement is there. The good news: you can run two exabgp on the host to do that.
@thomas955 good luck with your project :-)
