Usage Thresholds for Subscriber Services

 

Starting in Junos OS Release 14.1, subscriber management enables you to manage subscriber services by establishing usage thresholds when a service is dynamically activated or when an existing service is modified by a RADIUS CoA action. The service is deactivated when the specified threshold is reached.

Subscriber management supports two types of usage thresholds—traffic volume and time. You use Juniper Networks VSAs to set the usage thresholds. The VSAs are transmitted in RADIUS Access-Accept messages for dynamically activated services, or in RADIUS-initiated CoA-Request messages for existing services. The volume threshold sets the maximum amount of the total input and output traffic that can use the service before the service is deactivated. A time threshold sets the maximum length of time that the service can be active. Table 1 shows the VSAs used for volume and time thresholds.

Service-Timeout

Number of seconds that the service can be active; service is deactivated when the timeout expires. Tagged VSA, which supports 8 tags (1-8).

  • range = 0 through 16777215 seconds

  • 0 = no timeout

26-179

Service-Volume-Gigawords

Amount of input and output traffic, in 4GB units, that can use the service; service is deactivated when the volume is exceeded. Tagged VSA, which supports 8 tags (1-8). The router polls the traffic in 10 minute intervals.

  • range = 0 through 16777215 4GB units

  • 0 = no limit
