EDR Balances During a NCC Upgrade to 4.4.1 Are Written in an Exponential Format (Doc ID 1446353.1)

Last updated on MARCH 27, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 4.4.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

While upgrading the Network Charging and Control (NCC) platform to to NCC 4.4.1, at some point (depending on the migration strategy), the Service Management System (SMS) and Vouchers and Wallet Servers (VWS) will be already migrated to the new version, 4.4.1 whereas the Service Logic Controller(s) (SLCs) will still be at the former software level.

During this transition phase, when the balance exceeds a certain value, the balances are written in an exponential format in the Event Data Records (EDR), as in the example below:

BILLING_ENGINE_ID=1|SCP_ID=123456|SEQUENCE_NUMBER=7654321|CDR_TYPE=1|RECORD_DATE=20120210131142
|ACCT_ID=123456|ACCT_REF_ID=1234|CLI=12345|BALANCE_TYPES=123|BALANCES=1.497e+06|COSTS=3000|RATES=3000|
LENGTHS=-1|DISCOUNTS=0|MAX_CHARGE=-1|CASCADE_ID=12|ACS_CUST_ID=1|ACCOUNT_TYPE=3|DURATION=60.0|
TN=12346578|TCS=20120210131041|TCE=20120210131141|CS=S|DISCOUNT_TYPE=R*W|MFILE=20120209144440|WALLET_TYPE=1

 

Changes

This issue may arise during the upgrade of an existing Network Charging and Control platform. It should not be observed when all the nodes of the platform are on the same software level.
