You may wish to investigate BGP Route Dampening:Route flap dampening won't give you the shut down that prevents the neighbors from flapping in the first place.
IP Event Dampening is a feature based on the BGP route flap dampening code:IP Event Dampening will shut the interface if it flaps too many times and hold it down as long as it continues to flap.
This will prevent BGP from even attempting to form a peering relationship.
The user guide and the parameters are very hard to understand.
