1 Introduction

1.1 Background

Modern mobile communications technology is a very complex system. Due to the


complexity of the wireless transmission environment, the mobility of the subscribers, and
the differences of the terminals, wireless network optimization is facing a lot of difficulties,
such as technology difficulties, lack of analysis method and tool, and low work efficiency,
which increasingly restricts the improvement of network performance. For the operator,
the functions of the equipment are not made full use of, and this hinders the further
development of the services and subscribers. Meanwhile, the equipment provider faces
two problems, i.e., a larger number of highly-skilled engineers are needed for network
planning & optimization, and it is still difficult to meet the operator’s requirement for
high-quality network.

1.2 Overview

UniPOS NDS-GU SERVER is the system for collecting and preprocessing data in the
CDT/MR system. It can automatically collect the CDT/MR data of more than one
RNC/BSC, store the raw data, and perform data preprocessing/statistics/conversion
according to certain rules. Besides, it can provide the data file interface, which provides
data for the third-party system. This guide introduces how to install and deploy UniPOS
NDS-GU product and how to perform troubleshooting according to the check on service
operation status, file generation, and log.

2 Terms, Definitions, and Abbreviations

2.1 Terms and Definitions

Northbound: Refers to the third-party network optimization system. It is above the NDS
system in the network architecture, and acquires data from NDS. Because it is in the
south of NDS, it is called the northbound system sometimes.

2.2 Abbreviation

The following table shows the abbreviations (alphabetical) used in this guide.
Abbreviation Full Name

NetMAX brand of ZTE’s new intelligent optimization tool

3 Principles

3.1 Principle of NDS

After the BSC/RNC generates the raw/basic data file needed by the network optimization
system, NDS (Network Data Service) collects the data periodically and then stores and
preprocesses the data. NDS also provides a unified interface (FTP file interface) for the
third-party network analysis system, and third-party system and NetMax acquires the
processed data from NDS periodically. For different versions of BSC V3 and V4, the
protocol for the communications with NDS is different.

3.2 Principles of MR

MR function: UR can report intra-frequency measurement, inter-frequency measurement,


inter-system measurement, service volume information, quality information, internal
measurement information, and location information in the measurement result (MR) it
reports. With these MR records, we can diagnose the coverage and interference of the
wireless network with the network planning & optimization analysis tool on the basis of
the MRs of subscribers in the current network, so as to replace the high-cost network
optimization method such as DT.

The MR function supports MR data collection, storage, and output.

With the serving cell measurement synchronization data, RSCP and Ec/N0 information
provided by MR data, the geographical-based display method adopted can show the
areas with weak coverage or coverage holes clearly, based on which the advices for
adding sites can be made.

Based on the inter-system measurement data in the MR data, we can learn the
inter-system coverage state conveniently, which provides a reference for configuring
neighbor cells for inter-system. Based on the statistical analysis of the MR data in the
entire network, we can learn the overall RSCP and Ec/N0 coverage state of the entire
network and the interference of the network.

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 3
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

With the associated measurement data of the serving cell and the neighbor cells and
UE’s TX power data, the network coverage problems such as weak coverage,
overshooting, and pilot pollution can be located very quickly. They can also be used for
the diagnosis and improvement of outside interference, and neighbor cell optimization.

Currently, the MR reported by RNC contains the standard interface (Uu/Iub) code stream,
as detailed below:

1. MR-UE coverage measurement.

i. Handover measurement due to event: UE


intra-frequency/inter-frequency/inter-system measurement

ii. Traffic measurement due to event: UE traffic measurement result

iii. Internal event measurement: UE TX power measurement result

iv. Periodical handover measurement: UE intra-frequency measurement result

v. Internal periodical measurement: UE TX power measurement result

vi. Periodical quality measurement: UE DL DCH BLER measurement result,


RNLU UL DCH BLER measurement result

2. MR-UE location measurement: Select one of the following modes.

i. UEB AGPS: Periodical UEB AGPS location measurement result. Select this
mode when the UE supports this mode.

i. CELL-ID+RTT mode: Periodical Node B RTT measurement, periodical UE


Rx-Tx time difference type 1 measurement

3.3 Principles of CDT

CDT (Call Detail Trace) function: It is an important feature of ZTE’s telecommunications


management network. By storing the key information of the call, the third-party system
can analyze the history traffic data to acquire the main information.

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 4
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

The CDT function falls into two parts, CDT control and CDT data storage.

1. CDT control: Configure CDT parameters to the CMP board by configuring and
modifying the RNC configuration parameters on EMS.

2. CDT data storage: Control which part of the CDT data to be stored on the CMP
board according to the data configuration, and save the CDT data to SBCJ through
the platform.

Basic flow: The user sends the CDT configuration parameters to RNC through OMMR;
RNC sends the parameters to CMP through the internal database system; CMP saves
the key information collected in the call to the CDT buffer area provided by the platform
according to the configuration parameters. Each CDT buffer area corresponds to a UE
call processing instance. When the call ends, the platform sends the CDT data to the file
storage module of SBCJ, which stores the CDT data in the file.

Finally, the subsequent processing system acquires files from SBCJ and makes the
follow-up analysis and processing.

Currently, the information reported by CDT includes mainly the following:

 Control-plane information:

1. IMEI

2. UE capability: includes UE radio access capability, PDCP capability, and physical


channel capability.

3. UE RRC info: includes RRC setup time, RRC release time, RRC setup cause, RRC
release cause, RRC connection setup cell info, and RRC release cell info.

4. UE key message info

5. UE channel type info

6. UE handover info

7. UE RAB info

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 5
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

 User-plane information: records the user-plane physical board resource related


information of the call.

3.4 Principles of DPS

It is a specific function of UMTS. Versions supported by DPI:


V4.11.20.06/V4.12.10.08p05/V4.12.10.14. (There is no DPI data in V3). Only the DPI
information of non-VIP subscribers is processed.

3.5 Principles of EMI

It is a specific function of UMTS. The versions supported by EMI include V4.11.20.06/


V3.12.10.08p05/ V4.12.10.08p05/ V3.12.10.14/ V4.12.10.14. Both VIP and non-VIP
subscribers support this function.

UMTS CS service perception assessment is mainly to assess the CS user experience


related KPIs for the predefined VIP user group, VAP user group, and the users of the
entire network according to the analysis of UMTS CDT CallLog, MR, and the associated
log. The assessment is made from the following perspectives:

Wireless signal coverage (focus on the wireless signal in the access state at the earlier
phase).

Service accessibility (including access success rate, access duration, and abnormal
interruption in the access process)

Service retainability (including MOC/MTC call drop rate, abnormal release rate, and CN
abnormal release rate)

CS service integrity (including the statistical analysis of uplink/downlink EMI and the
display mode)

Among the above KPIs, EMI is a newly-added one, i.e., equivalent MOS indicator. It is
also a core KPI of CS service perception assessment. It is used mainly to perform
statistical analysis to network-level and cell-level (user data of a cell) EMIs, display EMS
statistics geographically, show the change of EMI with the change of time that the user

ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

makes a call, trace back the geographical data of uplink/downlink EMI when there is
some CS service quality problem or the users complain about call drops, and
troubleshoot suspected one-way audio problem according to the uplink/downlink based
EMI statistics algorithm and short call record in complicated CS quality problem.

with HBA accordingly), use a high-quality Cat5e cable to connect the disk array and
NDS server. NDS server and NetMax (or northbound interface) should also be
connected with a high-quality Cat5e cable to guarantee the transmission bandwidth and
quality. 1. Eight pieces of high-quality Cat5e cables are needed, which are shown in
the red lines in the following figure. 2. Three pieces of common-quality Ethernet
cables are needed, which are shown in the blue lines in the following figure.
High-quality Cat5e cables can be used for the common cables if it takes too much time
to distinguish the cables.

5.2.4.2 Requirements for the Communications Between Nodes

The NDS server needs to communicate with the NEs (BSC/RNC). The network ports are
as shown in the table above.

NDS needs to communicate with NetMax or the third-party network optimization system.

NetMax or the third-party network optimization system may acquire northbound data
from EMS, so make sure the communications with EMS are connected.

The network optimization command of NetMax or the third-party network optimization


system is sent to the NEs through EMS, so make sure the communications with EMS are
connected.

There is no direct interaction between the NEs and NetMax or the third-party network
optimization system, so they do not need to cummunicate with each other.

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 13
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

The data interface of the disk array controller needs only to communicate with NDS or
NetMax server.

The management interface of the disk array controller can communicate with either NDS
or NetMax server. The external network IP may be configured for the management and
monitoring in the later phase.

5.2.4.3 Requirement for Bandwidth

The following calculation is based on the data model acquired from the Shenzhen project.
The busy-hour traffic is 10000erl, and the CDT data volume is 210M. The part in bond
fonts shows the requirement for the bandwidth. The calculation method is as shown
below:

The percentage of different data types:

Raw MR data = CDT * 3.75 (set MR Data Collection Rate to 100%)

Raw CT data = CDT * 2

Size for Netmax interface directory = MR * 0.5 + CDT * 2.5 = 4.375 * CDT

Data volume calculation:

RNC-NDS: MR + CDT + CT = 6.75 CDT = 6.75 * 210M = 1418M

NDS-NetMAX Server: NetMAX reads all data1 and data3, and use them as CDT data.
Based on "data1 : data3 = 1 : 2,” NetMAX needs to read 2.7 times of CDT data, 570M in
total. With data3, CT data, VIP data, and complaint user data counted in, NetMAX needs
to read at least 600M data.

Bandwidth calculation:

Network bandwidth calculation: Data volume (number of bytes) X 8 (bits/bytes)


÷Network Utilization Rate ÷3600 (seconds), use “0.6” as the value of Network Utilization
Rate.

NDS-RNC bandwidth (10000erl/hour in busy hours): 5.25M is needed

5.2.5 Hardware Space Planning

Perform Raid1 on at least two physical hard disks, and perform Raid5 on the other disks,
which are used as the data disks.

If the disk array is connected, store the NDS application software and data on the disk
array.

5.2.5.1 Requirement for NDS Application Software Space

Because the temporary files need to be saved, it is recommended that 100G space be
allocated to the disk where the NDS application software is installed.

5.2.5.2 Requirement for NDS Data Space

The following calculation is based on the data model acquired from the Shenzhen
project.

The busy-hour traffic is 10000erl, and the CDT data volume is 210M.

The percentage of different data types:

Raw MR data = CDT * 3.75

Raw CT data = CDT * 2

Size for Netmax interface directory = MR * 0.5 + CDT * 2.5 = 4.375 * CDT

Data volume calculation (10000erl/hour in busy hours):

RNC-NDS: MR + CDT + CT = 6.75 CDT = 6.75 * 210M = 1418M

NDS-NetMAX Server: NetMAX reads all data1 and data3, and use them as CDT data.
Based on "data1 : data3 = 1 : 2,” NetMAX needs to read 2.7 times of CDT data, 570M in
total. With data3, CT data, VIP data, and complaint user data counted in, NetMAX needs
to read at least 600M data.

Note:

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 18
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

1. The above calculation is based on CS+PS 10000erl. If there is more than one NE, add
up the traffic volume of all NEs, and then multiply the result by the number of days.

2. Consult with the field engineer for the confirmation of traffic model.

5.2.6 Applying for License File in Advance (Important)

Refer to the ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Authorization Guide for details. Apply for the
License file of V13.40 series in advance. Otherwise, before the License file is imported
after the installation is completed, NDS cannot output any data to the northbound
interface or NetMAX because the NDS functions are restricted.

5.3 Installing NDS in Linux OS

Requirement for OS version: Redhat V6.0/V6.1/V6.2/V6.3, Redhat V6.3 is


recommended.

Note:

Deployment of NDS on SBCJ/SBCX is not supported.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux V6.4 is not supported.

5.3.1 Uploading Installation Package

Use the file transmission function provided by Filezilla FTP Client, log on to the ftp/sftp
service of the server OS as the root user, and upload

6 NDS Service Configuration


The Web configuration mode is added in NDS-GU V13.40. To avoid the fault due to the
manual modification of configuration files, use the Web mode to modify the configuration
items.

Note:

If the corresponding file needs to be modified manually, modify it as the nds user (the user
created automatically when NDS is installed). Otherwise, the owner of NDS related
configuration files tends to change, and consequently NDS cannot read these files.

6.1 Configuring NDS in the Web Mode

Because manual modification of configuration file is likely to cause some error, NDS
provides the Web configuration mode for common items.

The method of entering the NDS Web configuration interface is as shown below, with
NDS ip=10.67.23.59 as the example:

Use a browser (such as IE, Chrome, etc.) to visit http://10.67.23.59:8000. IE7, IE8, and
Chrome are recommended, because there may be some display problem if other
browsers are used.

For the first login, type in user name “netmax” and password “netmax123.”

The following interface appears if the login succeeds.

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 26
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

Configure NDS file, data sources, and disk manager in the General tab.

Configure UMTS northbound switch and NetMax switch in the UMTS tab.

Configure GSM northbound switch and NetMax switch in the GSM tab.

Configure UMTS VIP user and complaint user related items in the DPS tab.

The Advance tab is only for the commissioning of development engineers.

6.2 Description of Application Scenarios

Refer to the following sections for the reference documents needed for each scenario.

Note:

If several scenarios need to be configured at the same time, check the configuration
chapter of each of the following related scenarios. For different NE versions, if there are
no special descriptions about NE version, it is necessary to configure related chapters.

If it is necessary to modify the XML file, modify it on the server with the vi tool. After the
modification is completed, download the file to the local Windows client, and open it with
IE or xml editor to see whether the format is correct. It is forbidden to upload the modified
file to the server directly. Otherwise, there may be some illegal characters (the coding
mode varies in different OSs, and the coding modes may be incompatible with each
other sometimes).

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 27
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

The contents of the configuration file are case-sensitive.

The ftp/sftp user for the northbound is “zte” and the password is “zte123.” Whether it is
ftp or sftp depends on which protocol is used when NDS is installed. The main directory
on NDS is [NDS-GU installation path]/Ftp/.

During the installation of NDS, another user is created automatically, i.e., nds, of which
the password is “nds123.” The main directory on NDS is [NDS-GU installation
path].

Click the submit button to submit the modification to the server. Note: If this configuration
is modified, it is necessary to restart NDSD service.

6.3.1.2 Configuration File

Note: If the configuration is made by the Web configuration mode, it is not necessary to
modify the configuration files. Just in case, check the configuration files and make sure
the Web configuration mode has taken effect.

[NDS-GU installation path]/Config/NDS_Config.xml: Restart the key NDS service (ndsd)


after the modification, and check the [NDS-GU installation
path]/Log/NDSPy_JobSchedule.log file. Check whether there is some error in the
configuration file.

[NDS-GU Installation Path]/Config/NDS_ProcessJobs.xml: Restart the key NDS service


(ndsd) and DPS service (ndsdpsd) after the modification. Do not modify this
configuration file without R&D engineers’ permission. The configuration file supports
regular expression and there will be some special matching characters.

Note:

Check this configuration file, and delete inexistent NE information to avoid wasting system
resources. The configuration information of each NE starts with “<UMTSFtpSourceConfig”
or “<GSMFtpSourceConfig” and ends with “</UMTSFtpSourceConfig>” or
“</GSMFtpSourceConfig>”.

6.3.2 Configuring FTP Connection Configuration of SBCX

The configuration of this section is required for GSM BSC V6.50 series and all UMTS
versions. Skip this section for other versions. The information of username, password,
path, and port should be acquired from NE engineers in advance.

6.3.2.1 Web Configuration Mode

In the NDS Web configuration, select General > Sources configuration to open the
Sources configuration interface, in which the configuration items can be added,
deleted, and modified.

Select UMTS Ftp, click the “add” button, and click Check in the pop-up UMTS Ftp dialog
box to check whether the link is connected.

Note:

1. Click OK to add an item, which is only added on the local interface and can be added
on the server by clicking the Submit button. Note: If this configuration is modified, it
is necessary to restart NDSD service.

2. Select GSM V6.50 for GSM, and select UMTS Ftp for UMTS.

6.3.2.2 Configuration File

If the configuration is made by the Web configuration mode, it is not necessary to modify
the configuration files. Just in case, check the configuration files and make sure the Web
configuration mode has taken effect.

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 35

Subnodes UMTSFtpSourceConfig and GSMFtpSourceConfig can be configured under


subnode SourcesConfig in the [NDS-GU Installation
Path]/Config/NDS_Config.xml file. They are used to configure UMTS data Ftp
download and GSM data FTP download respectively. Restart the key NDS service (ndsd)
after the modification.

6.3.2.3 Configuration Description

Because NDS-GU communicates with the SBCX on RNC/BSC and collects RNC/BSC
data through the FTP protocol, it is necessary to make sure the TCP/IP network
connection between the server of NDS and the SBCX of RNC/BSC and the server can
be connected to the FTP server of SBCX. For the purpose of visiting different
RNCs/BSCs correctly, the IP, port No., username, and password of the SBCX on
RNC/BSC can be modified in the configuration file according to the on-site configuration.
The collected file will be saved in the format of
[Date]/[Area]/[Format]/[RNCID/BSCID]/[Data file]. The configuration content is as
detailed below:

The Ftp configuration file consists of two parts, i.e., UMTS part and GSM part. The
configuration items of these two parts are almost the same. In the following description,
the configuration of RNC is taken as the example.
<UMTSFtpSourceConfig RNCID="346" Area="021" MiningHours="12" Period="15" HasSubDateDi

The Web configuration mode is not available for the NEs of GSM V6.20 series, and the
mrcfg.ini configuration file needs to be modified manually.

6.4.2 Configuration File

After [NDS-GU installation path]/Config/DataManage.ini or [NDS-GU


installation path]/NDS-GV3/mr/mrcfg.ini is modified, there is no need to
restart any services, which will take effect when the next task is started.

6.4.3 Configuration Description

DataManage.ini is used mainly to configure the parameters of the northbound file.


This configuration file falls into two parts, i.e., GSM northbound configuration and UMTS
northbound configuration. Note: For GSM BSCV6.20, the mrcfg.ini configuration file,
instead of DataManage.ini needs to be modified.

6.4.4 Configuration Content

6.4.4.1 GSM Northbound Configuration

For GSM 6.30 and 6.50 series, it is necessary to configure the [NDS-GU installation
path] / Config/ DataManage.ini file.

For GSM 6.20 series, it is necessary to configure the [NDS-GU installation


path]/NDS-GV3/ mr/ mrcfg.ini file.

The following are the examples of the DataManage.ini file and the mrcfg.ini file.

The following is the example of the DataManage.ini file.

6.7.1 Configuration File

After [NDS-GU installation path]/Config/Location.ini is modified, there is


no need to restart any services, which will take effect when the next task is started.

6.7.2 Configuration Description

In UMTS NodeB V4.12.10.15 and previous versions, the RTT data reported by NodeB
has the protection interval of 7-7 chips (BPC:5chips, BPK:7chips). In this case, the RTT
distance calculated by the formula will be increased by over 200 meters, leading to
inaccurate positioning. Modify the Location.ini file to perform RTT compensation by
reducing 5 chips (set RTTMinusMeters “195” manually; default: 0).

For the upgrade of NodeB version to 4.12.10.15P01/4.12.10.15P10 or a later version,


this configuration is not needed.

Note: This section is applicable only to GSM BSC V6.30 series.

After GSM V3 RAP installation is started, if the data from a BSC needs to be received,
make sure the BSC is connected with the GSM V3 RAP server. If the communications
are not connected in some subnetwork, it is necessary to add the route to the BSC on the
GSM V3 RAP server. Ping the IP of the BSC to check whether the communications
between the BSC and the GSM V3RAP server are connected. If the communications are
not connected, add the route with the following method.

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 64
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

6.8.1.1 Installation Configuration in Linux OS

In the Linux OS, execute the following command to add the route.

route add -net 118.18.1.30 gw 128.0.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.255

Note 1: 118.18.1.30 is used to configure dynamic SCTP.

128.0.0.10 is the interface IP of the interface board that communicates with NDS.

Note 2: BSC and NDS are connected through a switch. Therefore, the IP of the interface
board and NDS should be in the same subnet.

6.8.1.2 Installation Configuration in Solaris OS

In the Solaris OS, execute the following command to add the route.

route add -net 118.18.1.30 -netmask 255.255.255.255 128.0.0.10

6.8.1.3 V3 RAP Disk Maintenance

V3 RAP data generation disk is maintained independently. It is necessary to edit the


SysArchiveCtrl.conf file under the [NDS-GU installation
path]/NDS-GV3RAP/logservice/bin/conf/ directory. After the configuration is
modified, it is necessary to restart v3rap service (ndsv3rapd). Refer to Sections 7.1.3.1
(Linux OS) and 7.1.3.2 (Solaris OS) for the restart method.

6.8.2.1 Configuration File

After [NDS-GU installation path]/Config/TimeZoneOffset.ini is modified,


there is no need to restart any services, which will take effect when the next task is
started.

6.8.2.2 Configuration Description

TimeZoneOffset.ini is used mainly to configure the timezone compensation of


different RNC versions. Timezone compensation is not performed by default. The
timezone, DST, and clock of the NEs managed by NDS should be consistent, and the
system clock of NE, NDS, and NetMAX should be the same. Otherwise, some problems
may occur, such as, data cannot be collected, or the data is displayed incorrectly.

For the NEs of UMTS V3.11.10.11P04 and earlier versions, both timezone and DST
need to be taken into account when timezone compensation is made. For other versions,
the time reported by the NEs already contains the timezone and DST, so it is not
necessary to perform compensation for these NEs.

6.8.2.3 Configuration Content


[UMTS_Time_Zone_Offset]
V3.11.10.11=8
V3.11.10.08=0
V3.11.10.12=0
V4.11.20.06=0
V4.12.10.08=0
V4.12.10.14=0

For example:

The configuration for V3.11.10.11 data in the Shenzhen project:

V3.11.10.11=8

The configuration for V3.11.10.11 data in the Austria project:

V3.11.10.11=2 (The “2” here is calculated by adding 1 hour of DST. For non-DST months,
set it to “1.)

7.2 Checking the NE Data on SBCX

For UMTS and GSM V4 (i.e., BSC V6.50 series), the data is downloaded directly from
the SBCX of RNC/BSC. Therefore, if there is no data under the Data directory of NDS,
check first whether there is data on the SBCX.

1. Log in to the SBCX with the FtpInfo data configured in NDS_Config.xml, e.g., the
connection configuration information of UMTS Ftp is as shown in the figure below:

2. Open the local FTP tool (e.g., FileZilla), and fill in the above information. If the board
can be connected, the link between NDS and SBCX is connected. Otherwise, the
link is not connected, and it is necessary to make the link connected.

3. After the board is connected, open the directory of “DefaultDir" in the above figure.
If there are some folders named by date, as shown in the figure below, it means
DefaultDir is configured correctly. Otherwise, it means DefaultDir is configured
incorrectly, and it is necessary to configure DefaultDir again.

4. Open the folder named by date, in which the MR/CDT files are stored, as shown in
the figure below. If the files of a type do not exist, it means the files of this type are
not generated on the SBCX, and it is possible that the switch of this type is not
enabled on RNC/BSC. Contact the on-site customer service engineer for details.

It should be noted that NDS can only recognize the files with the .gz extension. If there is
a file with the .dat extension, and the file size is “0,” it will be deleted by Logservice later.
If the file size is not “0,” the file will be compressed to a .gz file later and then be
downloaded by NDS. When to delete and compress the file is controlled by Logservice.

7.3 Check File Acquisition State on NDS

The system downloads the dat.gz/.dat data file from RNC/BSCV4/BSCV3 through the
FTP/TCP/UDP protocol. The storage path of the file is defined by the LocalDir in
NDS_Config.xml. The default path is [NDS-GU installation path ]/Data. Then,
save the files in the YYYYMMDD/Area ID/Mode/RNCID or BSCID

data, the data is acquired from this folder.
Remarks:
If there is the MR/CDT source data under the Data directory, but no
data under the VIPData directory, restart DPS service (ndsdpsd) to
check whether the DPS service is normal.

VIPData If there are data files under the VIPData directory, but no VIP data
on NetMax, check whether NETMAXIP is configured in [NDS-GU
Installation
Path]/Config/DPS_DataCollectOptions.ini. Note:
Restart the DPS service after the modification.
The corresponding log file on NDS is [NDS-GU installation
path]/Log/NDS_MUDataCollect.log. Check whether there is
some error in the file.

upload The folder of the files uploaded from NetMax to NDS.

In the above directories, the directories named by date store the data downloaded from
the boards and the data used by NetMAX, including UMTS data and GSM data. Refer to

7.3.1 UMTS Product

The meaning of each directory:


Directory Name Functions

The storage location of the NetMAX-U interface file, i.e., the root
directory of the data downloaded by NetMax-U. After NDS
decodes the data of different types, it generates the data under
the netmax directory. The type of the data can be viewed in the
netmax file name. If the NetMAX directory is not displayed, it means NDS
does not start decoding and generating the corresponding file for
NexMAX. In this case, check whether NetMax has imported the
engineering parameter file, and whether NDS_Config.xml is
configured correctly.

7.4 Checking File Generation on NDS

After the files are processed by NDS, the files generated are stored under the FTP
directory under [NDS-GU installation path] (in the YYYYMMDD/Area ID/Mode/RNCID or
BSCID format), or MR subdirectory (MR data file), or CDT subdirectory(CDT data file), or
NetMAX subdirectory (Data file provided for NetMAX. Default FTP connection
information for NetMAX: IP: NDS IP; Port: 21; UserName: netmax; Pwd: netmax123;
Home=[NDS-GU installation path]/Ftp/). The contents of the FTP directory are used by
the third-party FTP system (northbound interface):

7.4.1 Checking GSM BSCV6.20 Series

If one of BSC V6.20 series is used and MR Server and CDTServer are used on NDS to
generate data, the data storage directories are as listed below:

1. Check whether there is MR data under the [NDS-GU installation


path]/Data/date/AreaID/GSM/BSCID/MR directory.

2. Check whether there is CDT data under the [NDS-GU installation


path]/Data/date/AreaID/GSM/BSCID/CDTEX directory.

3. Check whether there is MRCI data under the [NDS-GU installation


path]/Data/stat directory.

If there is the MR/CDT/MRCI data under the above directories, it means the source data
is normal. If there is no data under the above directories, it means MRServer and
CDTServer do not generate data. In this case, it is necessary to check why the two
services are abnormal.

7.4.2 Checking GSM BSCV6.30 and V6.50 Series

If one of GSM BSCV6.30 and V6.50 Series is used, perform the following steps to check
whether the source data is generated:

1. Check whether there is MR/CDT data under the [NDS-GU installation


path]/NDS-GV3RAP/data directory.

2. Check whether local download is configured in the NDS_Config.xml file. It is only


necessary to configure the BSCID in GSMLocalSourceConfig, as shown in the
figure below:

3. After the configuration is modified, be sure to restart NDS service. By this operation,
NDS will copy the files under the [NDS-GU installation
path]/NDS-GV3RAP/data directory to the [NDS-GU installation
path]/Data/Date/Area/GSM/BSCID directory.

If there is no MR/CDT data under the [NDS-GU installation


path]/NDS-GV3RAP/data directory, it means the V3Rap function is abnormal. In this
case, perform troubleshooting according to the corresponding installation guide.

7.4.3 Checking Data Integrity in the FTP Directory

The check method is as detailed below, with the check of UMTS MR file as the example:

Check whether there is data on SBCX, e.g.,


/DailyBuild/ndsdata/UMTSData/20131223/
ZTE_MRU_UMTS_362_20131223113000_V3.11.10.11_P37a67db21.dat.gz

Check whether there is data under the Data directory of NDS, e.g.,

[NDS-GU installation path] /Data /20131223 /021 /UMTS /362 /MR


/ZTE_MRU_UMTS_362_20131223113000_V3.11.10.11_P37a67db21.dat.gz

Check whether there is northbound data under the FTP directory, e.g.,

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 83
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

[NDS-GU installation directory] /FTP /20131223 /362

8 FAQs and Solutions


This chapter introduces some common problems found when NDS-GU software is used
and the solutions.

8.1 User Root Locked to Ftp Home Directory (Linux)

Because three FTP users will be created when NDS is installed, the global parameter
(Linux OS, the “#” before chroot_list_enable=YES in /etc/vsftpd.conf is
deleted) is modified to “YES,” so as to lock a certain user to a certain directory (control its
access permission).

There are two solutions:

(Applicable to Linux OS) Modify /etc/passwd with the vi command, and set the home
directory of user root to /. Log on the system again through Ftp as user root.

(Applicable to Linux OS) Modify /etc/vsftpd.conf with the vi command, add “#” before
chroot_list_enable=YES, and restart the vsftpd service with the service vsftpd
restart command. Then, log on to the system through Ftp as user root.

8.2 NDS Related Processes Are in Abnormal State

If there is some process staying in the Maintenance state or switching repeatedly


between online state and offline state, it means some problem occurred when the
process is started, which may be caused by some mistake in the related configuration file.
In this case, check the modified configuration file carefully.

If the fault cannot be found in the configuration file, check the following process log file.

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 88
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

In the Solaris OS, check the log of the processes under /var/svc/log/ to find the
cause of the fault, as shown in the figure below.

In the Linux OS, check /var/log/messages and other log files.

For example: solaris


application-NDS-NDSCDTSERVERService_NDSCDTSERVERD.log

[ Feb 19 11:13:49 Executing start method ("/lib/svc/method/NDSCDTSERVERD start") ]


uid=0(root) gid=0(root) open cdt.lck error:Permission denied

If the above print appears, it means there is some error in the NDSCDTSERVERD
process. It is possible that other user starts this service and the permission of the
cdt.lck file is modified.

8.3 NDS Cannot Be Installed and the System


Prompts It Already Exists

When NDS is installed, the system prompts it has existed and the installation cannot be
continued.

A possible cause of this problem is that NDS was installed before but was not uninstalled
according to the normal procedure.

Find the original installation version. Execute the following steps (the following method is
valid only for the verification of V13.20 and V13.40 series. In the following description,
V13.20 is taken as the example).

1. Find the installation package of the original installation version.

2. After the installation package is unzipped, unzip the NDS_GU.tar package with the
following command.
gunzip NDS_GU_V13.20.01P02_Release_Solaris.tar.gz
tar -xvf NDS_GU_V13.20.01P02_Release_Solaris.tar
tar -xvf NDS-GU.tar

3. Enter the NDS-GU directory, and execute the NDSUnInstall.sh script.


cd NDS-GU
./NDSUnInstall.sh

8.4 Checking NE Status

If the NE signaling is normal, the NE runs properly.

8.5 SBCX Board Configuration

RNCID/BSCID configuration file: modify the RNCID/BSCID corresponding to the board in


the /home/zte/LogService/bin/conf/LogService.conf configuration file;
otherwise, the RNCID/BSCID in the data file generated by the board may be incorrect.

8.6 Notices in Data Download

If the data fails to be downloaded, check whether there is an extra “/” added before the
DefaultDir in the NDSConfig.xml configuration file.

The data storage path on RNC/BSC SBCX is the relative path of the Home directory of
the Ftp user, e.g., if the default root directory of the ftp user is /home and MR data is
saved under the /home/zte/Data directory on RNC/BSC SBCX, set this
configuration item to zte/Data.

8.7 The RNCID in the File Name Generated on RNC


Is Inconsistent with the RNCID Configured

Due to RNCID modification or board replacement, the RNCID in the MR/CDT data file
name generated on the NEs is inconsistent with the RNCID configured, and
consequently NDS cannot get data from the NEs. In this case, it is necessary to perform
related NE operations to validate the correct RNCID. If RNCID is modified, it is
required that the whole system be rebooted.

If RNCID is inconsistent with what is configured on the NE, there are two solutions:

1. Reboot the master and slave OMPs simultaneously. After both are started up,
reboot the master LogService and then the slave LogService.

2. Modify the RNCID in the memory (this method is risky and is not recommended).

i. Collect the RAPMGT process of the master OMP, and modify the address
according to the IP actually acquired.

[RAPMGT_W_OMP_SBCJ_L_X86_64_64_R_V4.12.10.14P06B00]#

The address acquired is 0x1ca1df90. Modify the low bit to “0,” i.e.,
0x1ca1df00.

Input the modified IP as a parameter.

d(0x1ca1df00,100,4)

ii. Modify “1089” to the RNCID actually used.

[RAPMGT_W_OMP_SBCJ_L_X86_64_64_R_V4.12.10.14P06B00]#
d(0x1ca1df00,100,4)

iii. Stop the Logservice of the slave board, and then reboot the Logservice of the
master board. Reboot the Logservice of the slave board after the master board
is powered on.

iv. Wait for five minutes and check whether the RNCID in the generated MR data
is correct.

8.8 Number of Data-keep Days

When NetMAX-GU is connected, the number of days for keeping the raw data files and
the NetMax data file (i.e., the data files under the [NDS-GU installation
path]/Data/ directory) does not need to be configured on NDS. Instead, it is
configured on NetMAX-GU by the user and then transferred to NDS automatically by
NetMAX-GU, so that the number of data-keep days on NDS is consistent with that on
NetMAX-GU.

When NetMAX-GU is not connected, NDS keeps 15 days of raw data files by default.
The user can modify the [NDS-GU installation
path]/Data/upload/NetMAXKeepDays.ini file and configure the number of days
for keeping raw data files (i.e., the data files under the [NDS-GU installation
path]/Data/ directory). It is not necessary to restart the services after the modification.
[KeepDays]
# The number of days for keeping CDT data.
CDTData = 15
# The number of days for keeping VIP user data.
VIPData = 30
# The number of days for keeping CM user data.
CMData = 30

The number of days for keeping UMTS CMData = 30: Keep the
complaint user data files, i.e., the data files data files under the
CMData
under the [NDS-GU installation /Data/CMData directory
path]/Data/CMData directory. for 30 days.

8.9 Packaging Log Files

If there is some problem in the system, it is necessary check the system operation
information. Execute the InfoCollect.sh script under the [NDS-GU installation
path]/Tools installation directory and generate the
InfoCollect20111110.tar.gz file under the [NDS-GU installation
path]/Tools directory. Send the package back.

8.10 System Version Information

The content of NDSVersion in the [NDS-GU installation


path]/Config/NDS_Config.xml file is the system version information.

8.11 Matters for Attention in Multi-Partition

If there is more than one partition on the disk (applicable only when the old server is
reused) and the disk space is insufficient for NDS data generated by NDS installation,
some problem tends to occur because the disk space utilization rate is low when all the
data is placed in the same partition.

8.12 NetMAX-GU Data Import Failure Check Steps

If the MR/CDT/DPI/EMI/MRCI data import fails, perform the following check steps.

ZTE Confidential & Proprietary. © 2018 ZTE CORPORATION. All rights reserved. 96
ZTE UniPOS NDS-GU V13.40 Installation Configuration Acceptance Guide Restricted▲

1. Check whether NDS link is configured successfully through the NetMAX-GU client,
as shown in the figure below:

2. Check whether the engineering parameters are imported into NetMAX-GU. Only
when these parameters are imported will NDS start decoding. For UMTS, check
whether there are the gsmproject.xls and gsmncellinfo.csv files under the
Data/upload directory on NDS. For GSM, check whether there are the
gsmproject.xls and gsmncellinfo.csv files under the Data/upload
directory. The size of the two files should be above “0.” If these two files do not exist,
it means NetMax does not import the engineering parameters and the radio
parameters.

3. For UMTS, check whether the “stat” switch under NetMAX_UMTSMR is enabled in
the DataManage.ini file on NDS. For GSM, check whether the “stat” switch
under NetMAX_GSMMR is enabled in the DataManage.ini file on NDS. This
switch determines whether NDS outputs the MR interface file (this switch is
available in NDSV13.2 and later versions).

4. If the CT/DPI/EMI is to be outputted, it is also necessary to check whether the


switch is enabled.

If the UMTS VIPData data import fails, perform the following check steps.

VIPData is generated under the [NDS-GU installation path]/Data/VIPData


directory. For versions prior to RNCV3.11, check the [NDS-GU installation
path]/Config/DPS_DataCollectOptions.ini file to see whether NetMAXIP is
configured. Restart the DPS service after the configuration is modified.
