Abstract

See full text

Systems and methods are provided for overload processing in an offline charging system of a communications services provider. A distributor unit is configured to receive accounting messages from a Charging Trigger Function (CTF) and determine that a destination Charging Data Function (CDF) intended for receiving the messages is in an overloaded state. Messages that are for ongoing sessions are transmitted to a selected destination queue of the overloaded destination CDF based on a designated queue status of the selected destination queue and while the destination CDF is in an overloaded state, while messages for new Diameter sessions are not sent to the selected destination queue of the overloaded destination CDF while the destination CDF remains in the overloaded state.
