Configuring ISG Accounting


First Published: March 20, 2006
Last Updated: July 23, 2010

Intelligent Services Gateway (ISG) is a Cisco IOS software feature set that provides a structured framework in which edge devices can deliver flexible and scalable services to subscribers. This module describes how to configure ISG accounting, including per-session accounting or per-flow accounting, broadcast accounting, and postpaid tariff switching.

Restrictions for ISG Accounting

Postpaid billing and tariff switching are not supported on the Cisco 10000-PRE2.

ISG accounting supports only the RADIUS protocol.

If authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) broadcast accounting is used in conjunction with periodic accounting, you cannot configure different accounting periods for different accounting groups.

Beginning in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRC, the Cisco 7600 router supports ISG accounting with the following restrictions:

Because the Cisco 7600 router does not support the traffic class, it does not support per-flow accounting based on traffic class.

ISG postpaid tariff switching and ISG per-service accounting are not supported on the Cisco 7600 router.

Overview of ISG Accounting

ISG supports both per-session and per-flow accounting. Per-session accounting is the aggregate of all the flow traffic for a session. Per-session accounting can be enabled in a user profile or in a service profile or service policy map.

Per-flow accounting, which accounts for a subset of session traffic as defined by a traffic class, is enabled in a service profile or service policy map. When per-flow accounting is configured, the Parent-Session-ID vendor-specific attribute (VSA) is included in accounting records so that per-session and per-flow accounting records can be correlated in the RADIUS server.

When accounting is configured in a user profile, the service name attribute is not included in accounting records.

Session accounting is enabled if the aaa accounting network default command is configured and a AAA method list is specified. (It is recommended that you use a named method list rather than the default method list.) Flow accounting is disabled by default and will take place only if a AAA method list is specified in the service profile or service policy map. ISG accounting sends Accounting-Start, interim, and Accounting-Stop records to the specified AAA method list.

ISG Accounting Messages on ANCP Ports

Accounting messages sent by ISG for sessions on an Access Node Control Protocol (ANCP) port contain the following AAA attributes: nas-tx-speed, nas-tx-speed-bps, nas-rx-speed, and nas-rx-speed-bps. ISG retrieves the values for these attributes from the Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM) ANCP notification sent to ISG or from the Quality of Service (QoS) policy configured on the interface.

When an ANCP port is in an UP state, the attribute values are taken from the DSLAM ANCP notification sent to ISG. If the ANCP port state changes to a DOWN state, the ANCP accounting messages will continue to contain the AAA attributes sent in the DSLAM notification.

If the ANCP-port state has never been set to the UP state, ISG can retrieve the nas-tx-speed, nas-tx-speed-bps, nas-rx-speed, and nas-rx-speed-bps AAA attributes from the QoS policy on that interface.

In order to retrieve the AAA attributes from the QoS policy, the policy must be configured prior to the configuration of the ANCP neighbor, otherwise ISG uses the previous values (if any) for the AAA attributes when a session is established.

If the QoS policy values are changed, ISG continue to use the previous values until the ANCP neighbor is removed and reconfigured.

ISG Accounting Records

ISG accounting uses the RADIUS protocol to facilitate interaction between ISG and an external RADIUS-based AAA or mediation server. ISG sends accounting records with the associated attributes to the AAA accounting method list when the following events occur: account logon, account logoff, service logon, and service logoff. The accounting server can be configured to interpret the records to generate bills for postpaid sessions.

Account Logon and Logoff

ISG sends a RADIUS Accounting-Request record to the specified AAA method list when a subscriber logs onto or off of ISG. The Acct-Status-Type attribute included in the Accounting-Request record indicates if the record marks the start (commencement) of the subscriber session or the stop (termination) of the session.

When the aaa accounting command is enabled with the system, default, start-stop, and group keywords, accounting records are sent to the AAA server. When a subscriber logs on, ISG sends an Accounting-Start record to the AAA server. When a subscriber logs off, ISG sends an Accounting-Stop record.

Service Logon and Logoff

ISG sends a RADIUS Accounting-Start record to the AAA server when a service is activated for a subscriber, and it sends an Accounting-Stop record when a service is deactivated. The record contains a different accounting session ID from the accounting session ID of the parent session.

The Acct-Status-Type attribute included in the Accounting-Request record indicates whether the record marks the start or the end of the service. The name of the service is included in accounting records for service logon and logoff.

Accounting records may be sent for events other than account and service logon and logoff. See the "Configuring Accounting" chapter of the Cisco IOS Security Configuration Guide, Release 12.2, for more information.

Interim ISG Accounting Updates

ISG supports interim (intermittent) RADIUS accounting updates, which work the same way as "watchdog" RADIUS accounting. Accounting updates are sent between the times that ISG sends Accounting-Start and Accounting-Stop records.

ISG supports two types of interim accounting: accounting updates for new information (such as a new IP address) and periodic accounting, in which accounting records are sent at a configurable interval.

Interim accounting for new information can be enabled or disabled globally. Periodic accounting can be enabled for specific contexts, such as globally, in user profiles, and in services.

Broadcast ISG Accounting

ISG supports AAA broadcast accounting, which is the ability to send user accounting records to multiple RADIUS servers. AAA broadcast accounting provides service providers with geographical redundancy for RADIUS servers, and provides accounting records to partners in wholesale models. For information about configuring AAA broadcast accounting, see the "Configuring Accounting" chapter in the "Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting" part of the Cisco IOS Security Configuration Guide.

ISG Postpaid Tariff Switching

ISG postpaid tariff switching allows changes in tariffs during the lifetime of a connection. This feature applies to time-based or volume-based postpaid sessions in which the tariff changes at certain times of the day.

Typically, a service provider would use postpaid tariff switching to offer different tariffs to a subscriber while the subscriber is still connected; for example, changing a subscriber to a less expensive tariff during off-peak hours.

To handle tariff switches for postpaid connections, the accounting packets log the usage information during the various tariff-switch intervals. The service profile contains a weekly tariff-switch plan detailing the times of day at which tariff changes occur. ISG monitors the usage at every tariff-switch point and records this information in interim accounting records. The billing server monitors all interim accounting updates and obtains the information about the traffic sent at each tariff rate.


Note Tariff switching is not required for time-based billing services. Because the billing server knows the service logon time stamp and logoff time stamp, it can calculate the various tariffs that apply during that time.


How to Configure ISG Accounting

Enabling ISG per-Session Accounting (required)

Enabling ISG per-Flow Accounting (required)

Configuring ISG Postpaid Tariff Switching (required)

Verifying ISG Accounting and Postpaid Tariff Switching (optional)

Enabling ISG per-Session Accounting

Per-session accounting can be configured in the following configuration sources:

User profile on a AAA server

Service profile on a AAA server

Service policy map on the ISG device

This procedure contains the following sections:

Enabling per-Session Accounting in a User Profile on a AAA Server

Enabling per-Session Accounting in a Service Profile on a AAA Server

Enabling per-Session Accounting in a Service Policy Map on the Router

Prerequisites

ISG sends accounting records to the AAA method list specified in the user profile, service profile, or service policy map. The tasks in this section assume that you have configured a AAA method list by using the aaa accounting command. See the Cisco IOS Security Command Reference for more information.

AAA servers must be configured to support ISG accounting.

Enabling per-Session Accounting in a User Profile on a AAA Server

Use the attributes in this procedure to enable per-session accounting in a user profile on a AAA server. When accounting is configured in the user profile instead of the service profile, the Service Name attribute does not appear in the accounting.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. Cisco-Avpair="accounting-list=accounting-mlist-name"

2. IETF RADIUS attribute Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85)

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 Cisco-Avpair="accounting-list=accounting-mlist-name"

Add the Accounting attribute to the user profile. This attribute enables accounting and specifies the AAA method list to which accounting updates will be sent.

Step 2 IETF RADIUS attribute Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85)

(Optional) Add the Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85) to the user profile. This attribute specifies the number of seconds between interim updates.


Enabling per-Session Accounting in a Service Profile on a AAA Server

Use the attributes in this procedure to enable per-session accounting in a service profile on a AAA server. Note that for per-session accounting the traffic class attribute should not be included in the service profile.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. Cisco-Avpair="accounting-list=accounting-mlist-name"

2. IETF RADIUS attribute Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85)

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 Cisco-Avpair="accounting-list=accounting-mlist-name"

Add the Accounting attribute to the service profile. This attribute enables accounting and specifies the AAA method list to which accounting updates will be sent.

Step 2 IETF RADIUS attribute Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85)

(Optional) Add the Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85) to the service profile. This attribute specifies the number of seconds between interim updates.


Enabling per-Session Accounting in a Service Policy Map on the Router

To configure per-session accounting in a service policy map on the router, you must configure an empty traffic class map (a traffic class map that does not specify an access list) and enable accounting within the empty traffic class in a service policy map. Perform this task to enable per-session accounting in a service policy map.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. class-map type traffic match-any class-map-name

4. exit

5. policy-map type service policy-map-name

6. [priority] class type traffic class-map-name

7. accounting aaa list AAA-method-list

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

enable

Example:

Router> enable

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

Enter your password if prompted.

Step 2 

configure terminal

Example:

Router# configure terminal

Enters global configuration mode.

Step 3 

class-map type traffic match-any class-map-name

Example:

Router(config)# class-map type traffic match-any empty-class

Creates or modifies a traffic class map, which is used for matching packets to a specified ISG traffic class, and enters traffic class-map configuration mode.

For per-session accounting, create an empty traffic class map; that is, a traffic class map that does not specify an access list for matching traffic.

Step 4 

exit

Example:

Router(config-traffic-classmap)# exit

Exits traffic class-map configuration mode.

Step 5 

policy-map type service policy-map-name

Example:

Router(config)# policy-map type service service1

Creates or defines a service policy map, which is used to define an ISG service, and enters service policy-map configuration mode.

Step 6 

[priority] class type traffic class-map-name

Example:

Router(config-service-policymap)# class type traffic empty-class

Specifies a named traffic class whose policy you want to create or change, and enters service policy traffic class configuration mode.

In this step, reference the empty traffic class map that you created in Step 3.

Step 7 

accounting aaa list AAA-method-list

Example:

Router(config-service-policymap-class-traffic)# accounting aaa list list1

Enables accounting and specifies the AAA method list to which accounting updates will be sent.

What to Do Next

You may want to configure a method of activating the service policy map or service profile; for example, control policies can be used to activate services. For more information about methods of service activation, see the module "Configuring ISG Subscriber Services."

Troubleshooting Tips

The following commands can be used to troubleshoot ISG accounting:

debug aaa accounting

debug radius [brief]

debug subscriber feature name accounting {event | error | detail}

Enabling ISG per-Flow Accounting

ISG per-flow accounting can be configured in the following configuration sources:

Service profile on a AAA server

Service policy map on the ISG device

This procedure contains the following sections:

Enabling per-Flow Accounting in a Service Profile on the AAA Server

Enabling per-Flow Accounting in a Service Policy Map on the Router

Prerequisites

ISG sends accounting records to the AAA method list specified in the user profile, service profile, or service policy map. The tasks in this section assume that you have configured a AAA method list by using the aaa accounting command. See the Cisco IOS Security Command Reference for more information.

AAA servers must be configured to support ISG accounting.

Enabling per-Flow Accounting in a Service Profile on the AAA Server

Perform this task to configure per-flow accounting in a service profile on the AAA server.

Prerequisites

This task assumes that you have defined IP access lists for specifying traffic.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. Cisco-AVpair = "ip:traffic-class={in | out} access-group [acl-number | name acl-name] [priority n]"

2. Cisco-Avpair="accounting-list=accounting-mlist-name"

3. IETF RADIUS attribute Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85)

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 Cisco-AVpair = "ip:traffic-class={in | out} access-group [acl-number | name acl-name] [priority n]"

Add the ISG Traffic Class attribute to the service profile. This attribute specifies input and output traffic to which the service will apply. Both an input and output traffic classifier can be added to a service profile.

Step 2 Cisco-Avpair="accounting-list=accounting-mlist-name"

Add the Accounting attribute to the service profile on the AAA server. This attribute enables accounting and specifies the AAA method list to which accounting updates will be sent. The AAA method list must be configured.


Note If this attribute is configured in a service profile that does not include a traffic class, accounting is performed on the session rather than on the flow.


Step 3 IETF RADIUS attribute Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85)

(Optional) Add the IETF RADIUS attribute Acct-Interim-Interval (attribute 85) to the service profile on the AAA server. This attribute specifies the number of seconds between interim updates.


Enabling per-Flow Accounting in a Service Policy Map on the Router

Perform this task to enable per-flow accounting in a local service policy map for a specific flow.

Prerequisites

This task assumes that you have defined a traffic class map and associated IP access lists. See the module "Configuring ISG Subscriber Services" for more information about configuring traffic classes.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

The AAA method list must be configured.

Troubleshooting Tips

The following commands can be used to troubleshoot ISG accounting:

debug aaa accounting

debug radius [brief]

debug subscriber feature name accounting {event | error | detail}

What to Do Next

You may want to configure a method of activating the service policy map or service profile; for example, control policies can be used to activate services. For more information about methods of service activation, see the module "Configuring ISG Subscriber Services."

Configuring ISG Postpaid Tariff Switching

ISG postpaid tariff switching can be configured in the service profile on a AAA server.

If you include a traffic class in the service profile, postpaid tariff switching will apply to the specified flow. If you do not configure a traffic class, postpaid tariff switching will apply to the session. Perform this task to configure per-session or per-flow postpaid tariff switching.

Prerequisites

ISG per-session or per-flow accounting must be configured in order for postpaid tariff switching to work.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. Cisco-AVpair = "PPWhh:mm:ss:d"

2. Cisco-AVpair = "ip:traffic-class={in | out} access-group [acl-number | name acl-name] [priority n]"

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 Cisco-AVpair = "PPWhh:mm:ss:d"

Add the Post Paid VSA to the service profile. This attribute specifies the weekly tariff-switch points for postpaid tariff switching. The syntax description follows:

hh:mm:ss:d—Weekly tariff-switch time.

hh = hour of day <0-23>

mm = minutes <0-59>

ss = seconds <0-59>

d = bitmap format for the days of week. Each weekday is represented by one bit, as follows:

00000001 = Monday

00000010 = Tuesday

00000100 = Wednesday

00001000 = Thursday

00010000 = Friday

00100000 = Saturday

01000000 = Sunday

Step 2 Cisco-AVpair = "ip:traffic-class={in | out} access-group [acl-number | name acl-name] [priority n]"

Add the ISG Traffic Class attribute to the service profile. This attribute specifies input and output traffic to which the service will apply. Both an input and output traffic classifier can be added to a service profile.


What to Do Next

You may want to configure a method of activating the service policy map or service profile; for example, control policies can be used to activate services. For more information about methods of service activation, see the module "Configuring ISG Subscriber Services."

Verifying ISG Accounting and Postpaid Tariff Switching

Use the show subscriber session command to verify ISG accounting and postpaid tariff switching configuration.

Use the show aaa sessions command to display information about AAA subscriber sessions.

Use the show aaa user command to display information about AAA subscribers.

Examples

This section contains the examples of output from the commands used for verification.

show subscriber session Output When ISG Accounting Is Applied to a Flow

In the following example, ISG accounting is configured in a service profile that specifies a traffic class, which means that accounting will be performed on the flow and not the parent session. In this example, 157 is the unique ID of the traffic class.

ISG: Accounting: Postpaid

12.2(28)SB
12.2(33)SRC
12.2(33)XNE

ISG accounting provides the means to bill for account or service use. ISG sends accounting start and stop records for sessions and services to an accounting server for postpaid billing. The accounting server interprets the records to generate bills.

The following sections provide information about this feature:

Information About ISG Accounting

ISG: Accounting: Tariff Switching

12.2(28)SB
12.2(33)SRC
12.2(33)XNE

ISG accounting provides the means to bill for account or service usage. Where billing rates change at fixed times and sessions are active across the boundary at which the rates change, ISG will provide accounting data to the billing server indicating the boundary. Tariff switching can also be used between accounting methods, such as switching from prepaid billing to postpaid billing.

ISG Postpaid Tariff Switching

Enabling per-Flow Accounting in a Service Policy Map on the Router

In 12.2(28)SB, this feature was introduced.

This feature was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRC.

Note Per-flow accounting based on traffic class cannot be configured on the Cisco 7600 router.
