Configuring the SAE to Manage PCMM Devices (SRC CLI)


The SAE connects to the PCMM device by using a COPS over TCP connection. The PCMM device driver controls this connection.

Use the following configuration statements to configure the SAE to manage CMTS devices:

To configure the SAE to manage CMTS devices:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the PCMM driver. In this sample procedure, the PCMM device driver is configured in the west-region group.

  2. Configure the interval between keepalive messages sent from the COPS client (the PCMM device) to the COPS server (the SAE).

  3. Configure the timeout for opening a TCP connection to the PCMM device.

  4. When this SAE is configured as the application manager, configure the identifier of the application manager.

  5. Configure the time that the COPS server (the SAE) waits for a response to COPS requests from the COPS client (the PCMM device). Change this value only if a high number of COPS timeout events appear in the error log.

  6. Configure the maximum length of a COPS message.

  7. Configure the buffer size for receiving COPS messages from the COPS client.

  8. Configure the buffer size for sending COPS messages to the COPS client.

  9. Configure the name of the community manager that manages PCMM driver communities. Active SAEs are selected from this community.

  10. Enable or disable state synchronization with PCMM policy servers.

  11. Enable or disable the SAE to send classifiers to the router that comply with PCMM IO3. Disable this option if your network deployment has CMTS devices that do not support PCMM IO3.

  12. Configure the time between attempts by the SAE to restore service sessions that are being recovered in the background when state synchronization completes with a state-data-incomplete error.

  13. (Optional) Configure the unique identifier that the SAE uses to identify itself when it originates in record-keeping server (RKS) events.

  14. (Optional) Specify the name of the default RKS plug-in to which the SAE sends events for CMTS devices.

  15. (Optional) Verify your PCMM driver configuration.
