Adding a Customized Dashboard


Prime Collaboration Dashboards


The Prime Collaboration dashboards provide information about the status of IP telephony and Cisco TelePresence systems.

You can view the following dashboards from the Prime Collaboration home page:

Dashboard
Description

End-Users Impact

Information about sessions and alarms.

Endpoints Utilization

Information about endpoints and their utilization.

Infrastructure

Information about conferencing devices, management devices, call and session devices, and video ports.

Provisioning

Information about pending orders, device synchronization status, and deployment status. This dashboard is available only when Assurance and Provisioning servers are converged. For more information about the Provisioning Dashboard, see the "Dashboard" section in Cisco Prime Collaboration 9.0 Provisioning Guide.


You can view data either as a chart or in a tabular format. By default, reports are displayed as charts that are interactive; that is, you can click on the data to launch the associated page. When you view a report in the tabular format, you can export data in the CSV format.

In the dashboard, you can view data for:

A day—Data collected from 00:00:00 hours to current time.

A week—Data collected during the last seven days including today, starting from 00:00:00 hours.

Four weeks—Data collected during the last 28 days including today, starting from 00:00:00 hours.


Note On all pages, the time displayed is the Prime Collaboration server time. In the converged mode, Assurance server time will be displayed.


End-Users Impact Dashboard

The End-Users Impact dashboard helps you to identify the most impacted TelePresence endpoints, sessions with alarms, and poor call quality locations.

It contains the following dashlets:

Top 10 Impacted TelePresence Endpoints with Alarms

Sessions with Alarms

Top 10 TelePresence Endpoints with Call Quality Events

Endpoints Health Summary

Top 5 Call Failure Locations

Top 5 Poor Voice Call Quality Locations

Top 10 Impacted TelePresence Endpoints with Alarms

Displays the top 10 TelePresence endpoints with alarms. The alarm count includes alarm with the severity Cleared.

You can view the graph for endpoints and service infrastructure devices.

You can click on the bar chart to launch the Alarm Browser to view all endpoints and service infrastructure devices that have this specific alarm type.

Sessions with Alarms

Displays the number of in-progress sessions with alarms.

You can launch the 360° Session View from this dashlet.

Top 10 TelePresence Endpoints with Call Quality Events

Displays the top 10 endpoints with call quality events (packet loss, jitter, and latency).

You can click on the event data to launch the Events page.

Endpoints Health Summary

Provides a summary of the status of all the endpoints in the network. You can view a summary for hard endpoints, soft clients, and TelePresence endpoints.

The dashboard displays the summary as a pie chart or table. It provides information about the endpoints in the following modes:

Unregistered—Endpoints that are not registered with Cisco Unified CM and VCS. Displayed in red. The count displayed for "Unregistered from UCM" includes the devices that are in SRST mode and Energy Save mode. You can click on the SRST mode and Energy Save mode data to launch the phone reports.


Note If all phones with a single SRST reference are in Unregistered state with a status reason code other than "energyWisePowerSavePlus," they are classified as being in SRST mode.


Registered—Endpoints that are registered with Cisco Unified CM and VCS. Displayed in green. The count displayed for "Registered Hard Phones" includes the TelePresence endpoints.

Unknown—Endpoints that are in Unknown state (registration status of the endpoints is unknown). Displayed in blue.

Click on the pie chart to view the Endpoint Health Troubleshooting window, which has the links to the following pages:

Endpoint Diagnostics

Phone Report

UCM Troubleshoot

VCS Troubleshoot

The phone counts shown in the UC Topology View, Diagnostics Summary View, and Endpoint Health Summary dashlet will be in synchronized, with a maximum of 10 minutes delay. You can schedule cluster discovery to trigger this synchronization manually, if required. Cluster discovery will also resynchronize the registration status for all phones. If cluster discovery is not scheduled manually, synchronization takes place as part of nightly cluster discovery.

Top 5 Call Failure Locations

Displays the top five locations that are experienced the most call failures in the last hour. Prime Collaboration aggregates the available CDR data at fixed time intervals and displays it in this dashlet.

The top five locations are chosen taking into account all the Cisco Unified CM clusters that are added in Prime Collaboration. For example, if three Cisco Unified CM clusters are added in Prime Collaboration, and each cluster has 30 locations, then the top five locations are chosen from among these 90 locations.

If there are fewer than five locations that are experiencing call failures, only those locations are shown. If the percentage of failed calls in a location is less than 0.5, the location is ignored.

You can click the bubble in the Z axis to view the following details:

Cluster

Failed Calls

Total Calls

Click Troubleshoot to open the Call Failure Troubleshooting page.

Top 5 Poor Voice Call Quality Locations

Provides information about the top five locations that are experienced the poorest call quality in the last hour.

The X axis shows the location. The Y axis shows the number of poor calls. The Z axis shows the percentage of poor calls, represented as bubbles. If the percentage of failed calls in a location is less than 0.5, the location is ignored.


Note TelePresence call details are not included in this dashlet.


Click the bubble in the Z axis to view the following details:

Cluster

Poor calls

Total calls

Click Troubleshoot to open the Call Quality Troubleshooting page. The Call Quality Trend pane shows the poor calls for the last 24 hours, per location. The Impacted Devices pane shows the devices that were involved in the call for that particular hour. Click any bar in the Impacted Devices pane to open the Call Details pane.


Note To view the call details, phone access switch must be monitored or discovered from the phone using CDP neighbor discovery.

Top 10 Utilized TelePresence Endpoints

Displays the top 10 utilized endpoints in your network.

You can view the graph either by duration or session.

By duration—The utilization is by usage hours. For example, if the utilization is shown as 0.634 hours, it means the endpoint has been utilized for approximately 38 minutes (0.634 x 60).

By session—The utilization is by number of sessions. Here, only completed sessions are considered. If the number of sessions is one, the value of the x-axis is displayed in decimals (0.2, 0.4...). If the number of sessions is more than one, the value of the x-axis is displayed in absolute numbers (1, 2, 3...).

You can click on the bar chart to launch the All Sessions Summary Report for the selected endpoint.

Top 10 Utilized TelePresence Endpoint Models

Displays the utilization, based on specific endpoint models.

You can view the data:
