PyHSS Update – YAML Config Files

Introducing YAML based config files for defining how PyHSS should be setup

One feature I’m pretty excited to share is the addition of a single config file for defining how PyHSS functions,

In the past you’d set variables in the code or comment out sections to change behaviour, which, let’s face it – isn’t great.

Instead the config.yaml file defines the PLMN, transport time (TCP or SCTP), the origin host and realm.

We can also set the logging parameters, SNMP info and the database backend to be used,

HSS Parameters
 hss:
   transport: "SCTP"
   #IP Addresses to bind on (List) - For TCP only the first IP is used, for SCTP all used for Transport (Multihomed).
   bind_ip: ["10.0.1.252"]
 #Port to listen on (Same for TCP & SCTP)
   bind_port: 3868
 #Value to populate as the OriginHost in Diameter responses
   OriginHost: "hss.localdomain"
 #Value to populate as the OriginRealm in Diameter responses
   OriginRealm: "localdomain"
 #Value to populate as the Product name in Diameter responses
   ProductName: "pyHSS"
 #Your Home Mobile Country Code (Used for PLMN calcluation)
   MCC: "999"
   #Your Home Mobile Network Code (Used for PLMN calcluation)
   MNC: "99"
 #Enable GMLC / SLh Interface
   SLh_enabled: True


 logging:
   level: DEBUG
   logfiles:
     hss_logging_file: log/hss.log
     diameter_logging_file: log/diameter.log
     database_logging_file: log/db.log
   log_to_terminal: true

 database:
   mongodb:
     mongodb_server: 127.0.0.1
     mongodb_username: root
     mongodb_password: password
     mongodb_port: 27017

 Stats Parameters
 redis:
   enabled: True
   clear_stats_on_boot: False
   host: localhost
   port: 6379
 snmp:
   port: 1161
   listen_address: 127.0.0.1

One reply on “PyHSS Update – YAML Config Files”

Hi Nick,
First recognize the great work you do teaching us how things work.

And now the question, XD, I am playing to connect freediameter in relay mode with PyHSS, but it seems that they do not exchange that capacity in CEA. it is right?
