ISDND.RATES(5) BSD Reference Manual ISDND.RATES(5)

**isdnd.rates** - isdn4bsd ISDN management daemon rates description file

The file *isdnd.rates* contains descriptions how long charging units last
at a given time of day, day of week and the distance to the destination.
If this file is available, this information may be used by the isdnd(8)
ISDN connection management daemon to calculate the short hold time for a
connection.
The format of a rate entry line is as follows:
The first field, the (*rate-code*) defines a collection of rates (for each
day of the week) which can be referenced in the isdnd(8) configuration
file isdnd.rc(5). This field must start with the identifier "ra" followed
by a digit in the range of zero to four.
The second field, the (*day-number*) selects the day of week for which this
entry defines the rates, where 0 stands for Sunday, 1 for Monday and so
on until the digit 6 which stands for Saturday.
The rest of the line consists of one or more space separated fields which
have the following syntax:
start_hour.start_minutes-end_hour.end_minutes:charge_unit_length
Start_hour and start_minutes define the begin of a time section and
end_hour and end_minutes define the end. Charge_unit_length define the
length of a charging unit in the previously defined time section. No
spaces or tabs are allowed inside this field. The hour and minutes
specifications MUST have exactly 2 digits, in case just one digit is
needed, a leading 0 must be used.
For example,
14.00-18.00:90
defines, that between 2:00 PM and 6:00 PM the length of one charging unit
lasts 90 seconds.

/etc/isdn/isdnd.rates The default rates specification file for the **isdnd**
ISDN daemon.

The line:
ra0 0 00.00-05.00:240 05.00-21.00:150 21.00-24.00:240
defines the unit lengths for a Sunday.
