DAP Late at Clearing Timed Out Requests

(Doc ID 1579351.1)

Last updated on MAY 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 4.0.0 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Symptoms

In all current versions of NCC (Network Charging and Control), an issues exists in DAP (Data Access Pack) where timed out DAP requests to an ASP (Application Service Provider) are not correctly processed on time.  This means it is not possible to correctly configure cascading timeouts due to the unpredictability of when dapIF (DAP Interface) will respond.

When creating DAP request templates, the timeout configured in the screens is the duration (in milliseconds) that dapIF should wait for a response:

However, under low traffic or test conditions, then it can be up to the WATCHDOGCYCLETIME + DAP Request Configured Timeout before the timed out request is actually cleaned up by both dapIF and slee_acs.

Changes

Problems with the ASP which may be causing it not to respond to dapIF in a timely manner.
