This is the MIB module for Usage Based Metering for the
        DOCSIS-compliant Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS).
        Usage Based Metering is a software feature provided in the
        CMTS so that cable operators can perform subscriber 
        account management and metering in a uniform and 
        consistent manner. 
        It involves the implementation of Subscriber Account 
        Management Interface Specification (SAMIS) as defined by 
        DOCSIS-OSSI specification. Usage-Based Metering is 
        essential in the processing of bills based on services 
        rendered to and consumed by paying subscribers. The SAMIS 
        specification focuses primarily on bandwidth centric 
        usage-based metering scenarios.
        The DOCSIS 1.1 RFI specification provides a mechanism for 
        a Cable Modem (CM) to register with its Cable Modem 
        Termination System (CMTS) and to configure itself based 
        on external Quality of Service (QoS) parameters when it 
        is powered up or reset. The principal mechanism for 
        providing enhanced QoS is to classify packets traversing 
        the RF MAC interface into a Service Flow. 
        A Service Flow is a unidirectional flow of packets that is
        provided a particular Quality of Service. 
        The mediation system can then rate the charges differently 
        for each of the Service Flow traffic counts based on 
        its Service Class. Thus, the mediation system obtains from 
        the CMTS the traffic counts for each named Service Flow 
        (identified by SFID) that a subscribers CM uses during 
        the metering data collection interval. The Usage Based 
        Metering requirement is that the CMTS must be able to 
        provide formatted Subscriber Usage 
        Metering Records for all subscribers attached to the CMTS,
        on demand to an external collection system. Optionally, 
        the metering records can be stored locally so that it is 
        available via ftp to the external collection server.
        The CMTS provides two configuration options to handle the
        export of metering data.
        Local :
        Store the record locally on the CMTS after collection. The
        metering system should then(operating at its own schedule)
        take the file out of the CMTS and is also responsible for
        deletion of the local file on the CMTS.  The deletion of 
        the file is an indication to the metering collector to 
        start construction of the new metering record which will 
        then be written to the local filesystem and the cycle 
        Stream the records to an external collection system as
        they get generated.  The time interval in which the record
        will be generated is configurable at the CMTS. A secure 
        and reliable stream is used to transport the metering 
        record out of the CMTS. 
        In case the connection to external metering system is 
        not possible, CMTS will retry establishing channel for a 
        max specified times. 
        The MIB allows for configuration of the parameters that 
        control the metering record collection like interval, 
        amount of metering information required, location or IP 
        address of the collection server, and metering filename. 
        In addition it provides for some important notificatons to
        the NMS to indicate the success/failure of the 
        metering collection.
