RE: SPPI PIB-ACCESS clause
The accounting type RPTs framework is described in
An unsolicited accounting type report is issued based
on a deterministic interval specified in the policy.
Accounting reports can also be triggered by the PDP
issuing an unsolicited decision with the resume policy
set with the attribute "send reports." FYI. A new version
of the draft has been submitted but is not yet posted
on the IETF site.
For COPS-PR reports that are not of type accounting,
my understanding is that the report clientSI may contain
PRI's associated with specific error / warnings conditions.

Subject: SPPI PIB-ACCESS clause
I need some clarifications about the PIB-ACCESS clause:
I understand that "notify" and "install-notify" PRCs are sent to the
PDP through REQ messages, and "report-only" through RPT messages.
But what triggers an unsolicited RPT message (apart from a failure RPT, or
an RPT that reports changes to the hardware - I talk about RPTs that report
usage, such as accounting RPTs, mentioned in COPS-PR draft)? Can the PDP ask
an RPT for a specific PRC? the SPPI draft also mentions:
'PRCs having the "install" and/or "notify" characteristics may also
be included in reports generated by the PEP'. How can this happen?
Does this imply that the PDP has a mechanism to query the PIB and ask
for a specific PRI?
