Configuring Statistics Profiles

The local policy decision function (L-PDF) enables you to configure properties for statistics output. To do this, you create a statistics profile, which configures the files to which statistics records are exported and the format that is exported. There are two configurations you can use to specify the profile, as described in the following subsections:


You must use the same configuration stanza for specifying the profile and the file selection. If configurations are committed in both hierarchies, the one at the [edit system services local-policy-decision-function] hierarchy level takes precedence.

  • When a session closes before APPID has identified nested applications, the session is treated as a best-effort session and L-PDF does not get the nested application information. In such cases, nested applications are reported as unknown applications.

  • During the time that the application identification (APPID) feature has not yet made a final determination of the application associated with a given flow, the flow does not contribute to any per-subscriber or per-application statistics collection. For more information, see Best-Effort Application Identification of DPI-Serviced Flows.


For rms- interfaces, the statistics received from the active Multiservices PICs in the RMS group are combined with the statistics of the reported ended flows kept on the Routing Engine. The aggregated value is written to the statistics file. In the case of AMS interfaces, all the Multiservices PICs consisting of the AMS group reports statistics independently. These statistics are aggregated on the Routing Engine. The Routing Engine runs an independent timer, which on expiry writes the aggregated entry in the statistics file. This method of collection causes the statistics data in the statistics file to be displayed with a small delay.
