•Support for trunk utilization monitoring.
•Integration with Operations Manager's DCR.
•Call grading functionality.
•Most impacted report enhancements.

–Simplified CDR processing flow.
When upgrading, be aware of the following:
•You can upgrade to Service Monitor 8.5 from Service Monitor 8.0 or Service Monitor 2.3 only. The upgrade process for 2.3 is not an inline upgrade, meaning you must uninstall the previous version of Service Monitor before you install Service Monitor 8.5.
•If you downloaded and installed Service Monitor 2.3 BUILD_ID=NT_SM2_3_20100430_1150_daily before July 30, 2010, the following folder is missing from your installation: NMSROOT/setup/dependency/jre.
Note NMSROOT is the directory where Service Monitor is installed. If you accepted the default location during installation, the installation directory is C:\Program Files\CSCOpx.
You must add the jre folder before you can upgrade to Service Monitor 8.5 (see Verifying the Build Number and Installing the JRE Patch).
