CM Segmentation Faults Reauthorizing An Existing AAA Session

(Doc ID 1413904.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 24, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version: to - Release: 7.3.0 to 7.3.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the following steps are run, SIGSEGV error is encountered.

Replication Steps
  1. Create a session with authorization ID "xxxxxxx" and msisdn number xxxxxxxxxxx (postpaid)
  2. Call reauthorize opcode (4026) with authorization ID "xxxxxxxx" and msisdn number xxxxxxxxxx (postpaid)
As you can see the case is about reauthorizing an existing session with a different user. In the event of BRM receiving such request from external systems (mediation/network elements) SIGSEGV should not happen - BRM should throw an error in such cases.

Authorisation ID is being reused in exceptional situations. This is one of the scenarios where by testing CM process experiences SIGSEGV.

This case, even if unexpected/erroneus for BRM, should be handled properly by catching proper error and not by Operating System signaling a segmentation fault to CM process, which then ends up spinning CPU and hanging database transaction started by that child CM process.
