Make Oracle Linux Based OCOM Packet Inspector Probe of Version 3.3.x Fully Dedicated One (Doc ID 2245160.1)

Last updated on MARCH 17, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Session Monitor - Version 3.3.x to 3.3.x [Release 3.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Packet Inspector Probe (PI) should be fully dedicated one thus no signalling protocols (for Calls analysis by Mediation Engine) or media (for VQ analysis) should be enabled on it. Reference: How to use the Packet Inspector feature on Oracle Communications Session Monitor / Palladion (Doc ID 1916356.1) and it is also noted in the Install Guide that PI should be dedicated.

The aim of this article is to provide a more concrete guide on how to ensure that. However in general all the steps (what does what in the configuration file) are covered in the Install Guide ( http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E74345_01/doc.3392/e74347/ins_omprobe.htm#SMING96201 )

IMPORTANT NOTE: Not having Signalling or Media properly disabled will be adding unneeded load on the PI Probe and as well adding additional load to ME (sending VQ stats or/and signalling protocols packets; whereas there may be already some other Probe seeing the same traffic and intended to be used as source for Calls/VQ monitoring by ME, that would mean ME would be getting duplicate data).
