Abstract

   This document describes a portion of the Policy Information Base
   (PIB) to control policy usage collection and reporting in a device.

   The provisioning classes specified here allow a Policy Decision Point
   (PDP) to select which policy objects should collect usage
   information, what information should be collected and when it should
   be reported.

   This PIB requires the presence of other PIBs (defined elsewhere) that
   provide the policy objects from which usage information is collected.

1.  Introduction

   The Framework of Common Open Policy Service with Policy Provisioning
   (COPS-PR) Usage Feedback describes the overall approach to policy
   usage monitoring and reporting.  This document defines the specific
   Policy Information Base (PIB) framework for policy usage feedback.
   The policy classes for monitoring and reporting policy usage
   feedback, as well as policy classes for controlling reporting
   intervals, suspension, resumption and solicitation are defined.
