Fixed In:

Opened: Jan 27, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Quota provided by the 2nd Gy CCA-u is ignored which can result in limiting the effective quota provided to a subscriber. This in turn can result in additional control plane traffic as additional Gy CCR-u's outlining quota threshold/exhaustion will be sent by PEM.

Impact

Potential service hit and increase in control plane traffic.

Conditions

PEM with Gx and Gy sessions. The threshold against the provided quota should be a large percentage of the quota which would result in quota exhaustion before additional quota is provided by the OCS.

Workaround

Mitigation: Configure the threshold to be a smaller percentage of the provided quota.

Fix Information

None
