Problems with blocking cic in pgw2200

Hi,

We have a delicat problem every day, around peakhours in our pgw2200 the cic:s is being blocked, we have configured 2000 cic:s to each AXE:s (we have 2) and have license for 2000 simultaneous calls. Last weeks our pgw2200 is behaving very strange and block cic BLK=GATEWAY, and we can't do anything it is just keep blocking more and more cic:s and will stay like this until it shots /opt/CiscoMGC/bin/startAudit.sh around 04:10 in the morning and all the cic:s are back to normal.

My question is why PGW2200 is behaving like this suddenly? It is very annoying, it is blocking cic due that we still have a lot off free ones.

Does anyone experienced this before, please help us, we don't know what to do.

/Roland Nyberg

Problems with blocking cic in pgw2200

BLK=GATEWAY gives you an indication that the Cisco PGW 2200 received RSIP (RM:forced) or RSIP (RM:graceful) from the gateway. This state is cleared when the Cisco PGW 2200 receives RSIP (RM:restart) from the gateway.

GATEWAY indicates that the CIC is blocked locally due to a gateway event.

You can use debug mgcp packet to check mgcp messages.

What are your gateways? What IOS is installed?

Regards.

Problems with blocking cic in pgw2200

I've same config: PGW 9.6(1) + 3 x AS5400 with IOS 124-15.T15.

Occasionally, the CICs block happens in the same way but are 3 cics blocked over 500.

Can you try to upgrade your IOS software?

Regards.

We have the discussion with our supplier to upgrade.

Unfortunately I don't really understand what you mean with:

"Occasionally, the CICs block happens in the same way but are 3 cics blocked over 500"

and the thing is that the RSC:s cpu is up to 99% when this problem occur

Re: Problems with blocking cic in pgw2200

Hey Roland,

Can you paste this command when thsi issue takes place rtrv-tc and rtrv-cic. Like Daniele says its due to the block message which is not getting cleared from the GW. RSIP (restart) would help to clear the cics.

This is an example of this command with the rtrv-tc output:

   "ss7p-veri:CIC=377,PST=IS,CALL=IDLE,GW_STAT=INTERFACE_DISABLED,BLK=GATEWAY"

   "ss7p-veri:CIC=378,PST=IS,CALL=IDLE,GW_STAT=INTERFACE_DISABLED,BLK=GATEWAY"

   "ss7p-veri:CIC=379,PST=IS,CALL=IDLE,GW_STAT=INTERFACE_DISABLED,BLK=GATEWAY"

   "ss7p-veri:CIC=380,PST=IS,CALL=IDLE,GW_STAT=INTERFACE_DISABLED,BLK=GATEWAY"

   "ss7p-veri:CIC=381,PST=IS,CALL=IDLE,GW_STAT=INTERFACE_DISABLED,BLK=GATEWAY"

Try to take sniffer traces between the gw and PGW during high peak time. Run a syslog server so that you dont face any issues.

Also run debug mgcp packets at the GW so we can check the RSIP messages.

Cheers,

Aby

Thanx, I will do this when our load and the problem occurs again, we have now routed some of our customers through other equipment and the ciscos are stable.

Thanx again

Hi Roland

You can run the audit script manually from mml

sta-aud

wait 2 minutes

stp-aud

Also You can alter the cronjob so the audit script runs more often

10 4 * * *   /opt/CiscoMGC/bin/startAudit.sh    #$CSCOga001$

for the rootcause check for MGCP 400 responsecodes
