Detection of Duplicates

Usage Engine supports duplicate detection both on Batch and UDR level.  

When a duplicate batch or UDR is detected, it can be routed to the Error Correction System for further analysis or discarded. An alarm can also be generated and mapped to any type of action, e.g. SMS, Email, Log file, and System Log.  

The Duplicate Batch Detection Agent allows the user to configure which parameters should be used to check for duplication: 

  • Size of the batch. 
  • Checksum value calculated on the batch contents.  
  • Meta data related to the batch (such as a file name). 

The Duplicate UDR Detection Agent also allows the user to configure which attributes from a UDR should be stored and used for duplication control.
