FCT_Timer Schedules The Timer For Dummy Opcode (Doc ID 746048.1)

Last updated on JULY 27, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.


On Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management(BRM), version, it is observed that the FCT_Timer schedules the Timer for dummy opcode.

In this case the duplicated EDRs and Timers are not released. This causes the memory consumption to increase which is not desirable.

Consider the following scenario for example:

- Modify MBI AAAGW input grammar in a way, that for AUTHORIZATION request, the dummy opcode number is set (say 5000), instead of                       PCM_OP_TCF_AAA_AUTHORIZE.
- Keep sending authorization requests to MBI AAAGW node.
- Monitor the MBI AAAGW process memory usage with system commands like ‘top’, ‘ps –elf’, etc.
- There should be significant memory growth of the process.
