BGP only keep routes active as long as the program runs

The only reason, I asked was when I stop the exabgp, it didn't log that the route was being withdrawn etc
But perhaps it's my understanding of how the route advertisment works (in general)?
If im not advertisting the route (eg. exabgp service stopped) does the route timeout?
Note. If I stop the service exabgp is monitoring the route withdrawal does work as expected

Yes - it is a BGP thing not exabgp
ExaBGP a program NOT a router/vendor CLI to some black-magic
I do not provide BGP support - only issue with BUGs.
I will invite you to read the wiki and articles contributed by users to get a feel of how to use it ..
It is 01:40 here .. and I am working :-(
