Fair Usage on MX Series Routers Configuration Wizard Overview
The fair usage on MX Series routers configuration wizard creates the SRC configuration shown in Figure 1. In the default configuration created by the wizard, each SRC VTA subscriber is initialized with a certain amount of periodic quota but no purchased quota. The SAE maps all subscribers to a single subscriber profile, which has both high-speed and low-speed service subscriptions. The high-speed service, called MXQuotaInternet, operates at 10 Mbps and is activated when the subscriber logs in. The MXQuotaInternet service continues to run until the subscriber’s quota is exhausted. When the quota is exhausted, the subscriber is switched to the low-speed service called MXQuotaLowSpeed, which operates at 256 Kbps.
The fair usage on MX Series routers configuration wizard requires one C Series Controller, one SQL database, and one MX Series router. The wizard configures a single SRC host. The wizard does not configure the SQL database or the MX Series router; you must configure these separately in order for them to work with the configuration created by the wizard.
The SRC policies and service substitution configured by the wizard refer to certain Junos OS dynamic profile names and firewall filter names. You must configure these names on the MX Series router for the configuration to work properly. Alternatively, you can modify these names in the SRC CLI to match those configured on the MX Series router after you run the wizard and commit the SRC configuration.
The wizard configures the SRC VTA component to use a MySQL database. This database must be deployed on a separate host and you must create the database by using the “vta-database-mysql.sql” file, which is included with the SRC VTA component. The wizard requires you to enter the database host IP address, database username, and password.
The wizard also requires you to enter the SRC hostname, IP address, and domain name, as well as the router hostname, IP address, and domain name. These parameters are essential for the configuration of Diameter peers and SAE-managed devices.
