Hey Ondrej,

Are there any docs that describe bird behavior on a case of a BGP 
session turning down from up?

 From all the responses I assume that there is a very explicit log 
output that can be discovered in a matter of micro or milliseconds.
Since BGP is used by many, are there any examples for a log line for a 
case like this?
