ASAP Is Unable To Communicate With Network Elements As OTD Is Used At Source Systems (Doc ID 1982735.1)

Last updated on MARCH 03, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Communications ASAP - Version 7.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal



Oracle Traffic Director (OTD) is implemented at source while sending a request from ASAP to the Network Elements.

However, a user learned that Oracle Traffic Director can only be configured to listen on a single port number that is an integer between 1 and 65535.
It can not be configured to listen on all ports or a range of ports.

But as per their knowledge ASAP is based on multi-threaded architecture, and it can spawn multiple connections with Network Element via different available ports.

Also, such ports are decided at runtime internally by ASAP, they cannot predict that a request would be routed via a particular port. This is causing an issue with using  OTD.

The customer is seeking a work around or alternative so that they  can proceed with such an arrangement where Oracle Traffic Director is used at the source. Can this be implemented in ASAP?
