TNG - Simple Custom Rate

Postby Leon van Heerden » Sat Jun 15, 2013 11:27 pm

We have build a new more simplified custom rate facility.
You need verison 1.1.1.11 of TNG to use this new rate file.
Version 2013.06.14.12

Download and unrar - the password is 'datatex':
  • Windows version:

    For latest version: Windows dll

    You save the DLL file in the TNG Rates folder and edit the INI file.
    32bit Windows location:
    Code: Select all
    C:\Program Files\Datatex\TNG\Rates

    64Bit Windows Location:
    Code: Select all
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Datatex\TNG\Rates

  • Linux Version now also available

    For latest version: Linux .so file

    You save the so file in the TNG Rates folder and edit the INI file.
    Linux location:
    Code: Select all
    /opt/Datatex/TNG/Rates

Create an ini file with the same name as your ratebook (dll or so file).

Add your rates in the INI file in the format described below.

The first line in the file is the overflow rate. This is the rate file that will be used to do a lookup for the cost, if your custom rate doesn't cover the dialcode requested. If you do not add a rate, all entries not found, will have a 0 cost.
Thereafter follows all the custom rates you would like to define.

The format of the file is as follows:
Code: Select all
RATE=za_telkom.dll
DAILCODE=Rate Unit, Cost per Unit, Minimum Cost, Rate Type, Rate Description


Example file
Code: Select all
RATE=za_telkom.dll
2721=S, 0.001, 0.10, N, CapeTown
2711=M, 0.10, 0.50 ,N ,Johannesburg
2781=S, 0.04, 0.20, M, Mobile,
267= S, 0.12, 0.50, I, Botswana
2710=S, 0.02, 0.05, O,


RATE
This is the rates DLL that will be queried for a cost if this custom rate fails to find it in the INI file.
Only the last RATE entry will be loaded if multiple entries have been added.
Only DLL files from your current rates folder can be specified here.

The format of each field:
DIALCODE:
Countrycode+dialcode digits. A south African number for Cape Town number would be 2721 or 2721592 (if you want to be more specific), a South African Mobile Vodacom number would be 2782.
You can add more digits if you need to have a very specific match.
A botswana Landline number would be 2673

Rate Unit:
M = Per minute Rate
S = Per Second Rate
NOTE: Rate Unit is case sensitive, use capitals.

Cost Per Unit:
This is the value used for the cost calculations
This is a numeric value in the format Rands and Cents. E.g. "1.20" or "0.0003" (without the quotes)

Minimum Cost:
Same format as the Cost Per Unit. This value is used as the cost if the calculated cost is lower than this value.

Rate Type:
L=Local
N=National
M=Mobile
I=International
O=Other (none of the above) This is also the default value, if you do not specify a type
NOTE: Rate Type is case sensitive, use capitals.

Rate Description:
A description for this rate. TNG can not use this description for reporting.

Reloading your Rates
You can edit the INI file at anytime. You can then restart TNG and the rates will be reloaded.

If you want to reload the rate without restarting TNG, create another file with the same name as your rate, but give the extension ".reload". If I use "MyCustomRate1.Dll", the new file would be called "MyCustomRate1.reload". The next time a rate look-up is done, the INI file will be reloaded first and the reload file deleted.

Creating multiple Custom rates
You can copy the DLL and INI file to another name if you need to have multiple custom rates for different trunks.
The default name is "all_custom_simple.dll" and "all_custom_simple.ini". You can copy both files and as long as you keep the file name portion of the same. E.g.
"MyCustomRate1.dll" and "MyCustomRate1.ini"

For an example of how to add your own Simple Custom Rate,
refer to forum post: Re: TNG not costing

NOTE: You must replace the values in this post with your configuration (area information) and costing requirements as per service provider.

279=S, 0.032, 0.0, N, TELKOM
2787=S, 0.0083, 0.0, O,

It was suggested that i try and use a preloaded rate sheet that may have call costs similar to mine, but when using the Call Cost Calculator only 6 of the 32 Ratebooks loaded indicate a call cost,

Please advise if I am following the correct procedure, or if there is a problem with the ini file structure.

Dear Andrew

Please check your ini file

Code: Select all
RATE=za_telkom.dll
2721=S, 0.001, 0.10, N, CapeTown
2711=M, 0.10, 0.50 ,N ,Johannesburg
2781=S, 0.04, 0.20, M, Mobile,
267= S, 0.12, 0.50, I, Botswana
2710=S, 0.02, 0.05, O,


Rate should be = to your default ratebook.

Attach your customrate.ini file

For future reference Please create a new post for a query.

Kind Regards

Latest version of Simple Custom dll:
all_custom_simple.rar


Download and unrar - the password is 'datatex':

  • Windows version:

    You save the DLL file in the TNG Rates folder and edit the INI file.
    32bit Windows location:
    Code: Select all
    C:\Program Files\Datatex\TNG\Rates

    64Bit Windows Location:
    Code: Select all
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Datatex\TNG\Rates

    NOTE: Stop the TNG service before saving the file. When saving it, it will ask to replace the existing one.

Latest Linux version of Simple Custom rates:
all_custom_simple_linux.rar

Download the rar-attachment and once prompted, please enter 'datatex' as the password.

Once extracted, you need to save the "all_custom_simple.so" file in the "Rates" folder and edit the INI file. This is located in "/opt/datatex/tng/rates"

NOTE: Create an ini file with the same name as your ratebook.
