Diameter proxy agent is a diameter node which can modify a diameter message and its AVPs if some policies need to impose. A diameter proxy agent is also known as Diameter X agent where X denotes an application identifier. There are two other types of nodes are well known i.e. relay and re-direct nodes.

Proxy Agent, similarly to Relay Agent, can redirect messages using the Diameter Routing Table. The difference is that Proxy Agent can modify the message content and, therefore, provide value-added services, enforce rules or perform administrative tasks for a specific realm.

Please find the description of the problem:
A diameter client and server communicates in the network through Proxy Agent.
Here, I have assumed PCEF is a diameter client and PCRF is a diameter server. Interface between the PCEF and the PCRF is known as Gx.

Does Proxy agent, which sits between PCEF and PCRF, need to support Gx application ?
Does Proxy agent validate presence of any mandatory or optional AVP when it receives a message from a diamter client (PCEF) before forwarding it to diameter server (PCRF) ?

Can someone please provides the detailed behavior of a proxy agent ?

When a Diameter Agent forwards a request to the next-hop, it adds Route-Record AVP to the message before forwarding. And it also stores the request and later uses those the stored request to forward back the answer to originator of the request.
I want to know what a Diameter agent does with the stored request if it reboots ?
