Configuring PCMM Record-Keeping Server Plug-Ins (SRC CLI)


Use the following configuration statements to configure an RKS plug-in.

To configure an RKS plug-in:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statements for RKS plug-ins. In this sample procedure, west-region is the name of the SAE group, and rksPlugin is the name of the plug-in.

  2. Specify the mode for load-balancing RKSs.

  3. Specify if and when the SAE attempts to fail back to the default peer.

  4. Specify the time the SAE waits for a response from an RKS before it resends the packet.

  5. Specify the maximum number of unacknowledged messages that the plug-in receives from the RKS before it discards new messages.

  6. (Optional) Specify the source IP address that the plug-in uses to communicate with the RKS.

  7. (Optional) Specify the source UDP port or a pool of ports that the plug-in uses to communicate with the RKS.

  8. (Optional) Specify the multiple service operator (MSO)—defined data in the financial entity ID (FEID) attribute, which is included in event messages.

  9. (Optional) Specify the MSO domain name in the FEID attribute that uniquely identifies the MSO for billing and settlement purposes.

  10. (Optional) When the SAE is running as a policy server—which means that the SAE sends event messages directly to the RKS—enable the SAE as a trusted network element.

  11. Specify the name of the primary RKS peer to which the SAE sends accounting packets.

    See Configuring Record-Keeping Server Peers for Plug-Ins (SRC CLI).

  12. (Optional) Verify your RKS plug-in configuration.

  13. (Optional) Specify an RKS plug-in for specific CMTS devices.

    See Configuring CMTS-Specific RKS Plug-Ins (SRC CLI).
