Symptoms

On Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control (OCNCC or NCC) version 4.4.1, Advanced Control Services (ACS) Event Data Records (EDRs) with Billing Failure Treatment (BFT) do not have an equivalent Charging Control Services (CCS) EDRs.  The balance is updated but the CCS EDR is not generated.

Below is a case where BFT CDR is showing that we lost BFT=382580 which is approximately 3.8GB of data.
