Can I maybe help testing this feature?

The use case is that I operate a large public BGP Looking Glass for the
NLNOG RING project at BIRD is
used as the collector as it is quite fast and memory efficient.

What I hope to be able to do at some point is to log all BGP updates
from the peers periodically take a full dump, and store those in long
term archives. Those archives will be made available to the public for
research & operational purposes similar to route-views and RIPE RIS.

Kind regards,
