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.
