The Network Charging Control (NCC) Support Tools package provides the script that, among other things, can be used for generating a timestamped log file of SLEE (Service Logic Execution Environment) resource usage and SIGTRAN interface CAPS (Call Attempts Per Second) rate. This article will detail how to set up the script to gather this data and talk about how to interpret the output.

The SIGTRAN name is derived from signaling transport and is a specification for the SS7 (Signaling System No. 7) protocol transported over the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP), which is a part of the Internet Protocol (IP) family.  Basically SIGTRAN refers to SS7 over IP.

Capturing historical trends by taking regular snapshots of Service Logic Controller (SLC) internal SLEE resource usage (Dialogs, Events and Calls, as generated by the ~SLEE/bin/check command) against their SIGTRAN interface CAPS rate is a useful tool for System Administrators monitoring the NCC Services.
