This KM provides a procedure to activate a rolling snoop to capture the PI (Provisioning Interface) on the SMS (Service Management System).

It is written as a generic step-by-step procedure to be used as a reference, along with general advice and warnings.  As it is generic, it might need to be adapted for specific implementations and/or special needs.

The rolling snoop tool used to collect the snoop traces is delivered in the Network Charging and Control (NCC) Support Tools package that should be installed on any NCC system.

If you are looking for more general information on implementing the rolling snoop scripts then another, more descriptive, article exists and can be found here:
