Managing the pgcpd Process Running on a Routing Engine

You can stop and start the pgcpd process that is running on the Routing Engine in any of these ways:

  • Restart the pgcpd process. In this procedure, the pgcpd process is considered configured.
  • Disable and enable the pgcpd process. In this procedure, the pgcpd process is considered configured.
  • Activate and deactivate the PGCP service.

The gateway controller cannot send add, modify, or subtract commands to the pgcpd process.

This topic includes the following tasks:

Restarting the pgcpd Process Running on the Routing Engine

Caution: We recommend that you do not restart the software process unless instructed to do so by a Juniper Networks customer support engineer. A restart might cause the router to drop calls and interrupt transmission.

Three options are available when you restart the pgcpd process that is running on the Routing Engine:

  • gracefully—Restart the software process after calls have ended.
  • immediately—Immediately restart the software process.
  • soft— Reread and reactivate the configuration without completely restarting the software process.

To restart the pgcpd process, enter the restart pgcp-service command in operational mode:

user@host>restart pgcp-service immediately

When you restart the pgcpd process, the process is stopped and then restarted.

Disabling and Enabling the pgcpd Process

This topic describes the process of disabling and enabling the pgcpd process. You can disable and enable the pgcpd process only on the Routing Engine. You cannot disable or enable pgcpd processes running on MultiServices PICs.

  • To disable the pgcpd process, enter the set system processes pgcp-service disable statement in configuration mode, and then commit your configuration:
    user@host# set system processes pgcp-service disableuser@host# commit
  • To enable the pgcpd process, enter the delete system processes pgcp-service disable statement in configuration mode, and then commit your configuration:
    user@host# delete system processes pgcp-service disableuser@host# commit

Activating and Deactivating PGCP Services Running on the Routing Engine

The PGCP service is activated by default. This topic describes the process of deactivating and activating the PGCP service.

  • To deactivate the PGCP service, enter the deactivate services pgcp statement in configuration mode:
    user@host# deactivate services pgcpuser@host# commit

    The Routing Engine is stopped and the PGCP configuration is removed from the router.

  • To activate the PGCP service, enter the activate services pgcp statement in configuration mode:
    user@host# activate services pgcpuser@host# commit
