Applies to:

Acme Packet 4600 - Version E-Cz8.0.0 to S-Cz8.3.0 [Release E-Cz8.0 to S-Cz8.0]
Oracle Communications Session Monitor - Version 3.4.x to 4.2 [Release 3.0 to 4.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


OCOM fails to display RTP flows on incoming leg of a call. This call was received from an SBC probe.

x1.x1.x1.x1 .               x2.x2.x2.x2                 x3.x3.x3.x3                       x4.x4.x4.x4

Troubleshooting steps:

Capture ipfix trace on SBC probe and decode this IPFIX trace. (Procedure listed on Document 2006842.1,  How to Print the Content of a Traffic Capture between an SBC and Palladion/Oracle Communications Session Monitor (Doc ID 2006842.1))

If we see decoded ipfix messages we can see SBC did send RTP stats for actual media flow, but since latching was enabled, source IP was set to (until first RTP arrives on SBC)

media type: audio (1)
Calling Flow Info
inflow : -> x2.x2.x2.x2:abcd
outflow: x3.x3.x3.x3:abcd -> x4.x4.x4.x4:abcd
Called Flow Info
inflow : x4.x4.x4.x4:abcd -> x3.x3.x3.x3:abcd
outflow: x1.x1.x1.x1:abcd -> x2.x2.x2.x2:abcd

However OCOM was expecting flow from negotiated media-ip, same can be seen in vsi-debug log captured while playing this ipfix packets: (Procedure to capture vsi-debug listed in Document : (Doc ID 1996114.1))

If we play pcap of this call directly (and not ipfix trace via SBC Probe), RTP flows can be seen properly. Because direct replay is different than real time ipfix replay.
