Configuring Diameter Network Elements

 

A Diameter network element consists of associated functions and a list of prioritized peers. The functions associate a Diameter application with the network element. The prioritization determines failover or load-balancing behavior for peer selection.

Before you configure Diameter network elements, perform the following task:

To configure a Diameter network element:

  1. Specify the name of the network element.
  2. Associate one or more functions with the network element.

    All functions are associated by default.

  3. Associate a Diameter peer with the network element and set the priority for the peer.

    Peers with the lower priority number have the higher priority for peer selection. Peers with the same priority are load-balancing peers so the peer selection alternates between the two peers.

  4. (Optional) Associate a Diameter peer with the network element and set the amount of time to wait for a response from this peer before retransmitting the request to another peer. The default is 4 seconds.
