    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Mobility Release 11.2W.

    Description

    Configure the CGF servers. You can configure up to a maximum of three servers for a transport profile.

    When multiple CGF servers are available for storing CDRs, the CDF needs to identify the server to which to route the CDRs first. The peer order determines this hierarchy using which the CDF tries to send the CDRs to the server that comes first in this order. The peer that comes first in the order is treated as the highest priority peer. At any point of time, the CDRs are sent to only one of the peers and not to all. If for any reason this server goes Down, CDF tries to send the CDRs to the server that comes next in the order. However, if a higher priority peer comes up, the CDRs are sent to this peer after a waiting period determined by the switch-back-time configuration.

    When required, the priority of any peer can be changed by using the configuration option to insert before or insert after the existing peers.

    Note: If all the peers are Down and if you have configured the RE disk as the backup storage option, then the CDRs are routed to the RE disk. However, if one or multiple peers come alive, then CDF waits for the configured switch-back-time duration and routes the CDRs to the highest priority peer that is alive after this duration. The CDRs that were getting stored previously on the RE disk are not routed to the charging gateway (peer) and continue to remain on the disk. You need to SFTP it from the /opt/mobility/charging/ggsn/final_log location on the disk.

    The remaining statements are explained separately.
