    Monitoring Charging Gateways

    Charging gateways can be monitored by checking status, pending CDR counts, and per transport profile.

    The specific statistics you can gather per charging gateway are:

    • Status (alive or dead)
    • Number of echo requests: transmitted, received, and timeouts
    • Number of echo responses: transmitted and received
    • Number of version unsupported packets: transmitted and received
    • Number of node alive requests: transmitted and received
    • Number of node alive responses: transmitted and received
    • Number of redirection requests: received
    • Number of redirection responses: transmitted
    • Number of data record transfer requests: transmitted and timeouts
    • Number of data record transfer success responses: received
    • Total round trip time of previous DRT (avg, max, min)

    The following commands are examples of charging gateway statistics:
