partition (PCRF)


Hierarchy Level


Configure a Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) partition (a specific logical system:routing instance context) and its parameters to define subscription ID information, destination host and realm names, and reporting for rules and resources. The PCRF is a centralized policy decision point that deploys business policy rules to allocate broadband network resources and manages flow-based charges for subscribers and services.



Name of the PCRF partition. You can define only one partition for the PCRF.


(Optional) Adds a 32-bit string to the end of the PCRF session ID for new subscribers. Existing subscribers are not affected when you configure this option. The string, called the session stamp or the session timestamp, consists of the UTC time when the router creates the CCR-GX-I. Appending the timestamp is considered to be an extended format for the session ID. You can use the extended-format session ID when you need an eternally unique ID or when you configure local reinitialization.


You must configure the use-session-stamp option when you configure local reinitialization with the reinit-on-failure or reinit-on-rar options with the local-decision statement.


This configuration also affects OCS sessions without any further configuration. The session ID for a given subscriber is the same for both Gx and Gy sessions.
