Release Notes for Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0
This document contains the following topics:
Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager (Prime UOM) is a member of the Cisco Unified Communications family of products. Prime UOM enables you to monitor Cisco Unified Communications deployments. It monitors and evaluates the current status of both the IP communications infrastructure and the underlying transport infrastructure in your network.
Prime UOM uses open interfaces such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) and HTTP to remotely poll data from different devices in the IP communications deployment.
Note Prime UOM does not deploy any agent software on the devices being monitored and therefore is not disruptive to system operations.
Prime UOM increases productivity of network managers by enabling them to isolate problems quickly using:
•UC Opsview—Provides an integrated view of UC endpoint and network infrastructure health that aids in navigation to fix operational issues before the end user notices them.
•Fault Monitor—Access to device views, event summaries, device and event details, as well as access to other management tools on devices, clusters, and phones. This component makes navigating fault management easier and allows you to quickly view relevant information. You can set the context views based on site or device group.
•Service Level View—Displays a logical topology view of your IP telephony implementation. This logical view focuses on the cluster call control relationships.
•Diagnostics—Access to key diagnostic tools and reports in one location. Distinct monitoring and diagnostic workflow allow you quickly identify network data for analysis.
•Reports—Generates multiple reports such as Event History, Audio IP Phones, Personalized reports, Service Quality History, and Video IP Phones.
•Clickable information in notification messages—Includes context-sensitive links to more detailed information about service outages.
•Context-sensitive links to other Cisco tools—Help you to manage IP communications implementations.
System requirements are documented in the Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0 Installation Guide.
Compatibility information is documented in the Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0 Supported Devices and Interoperable Software Table and the Cisco Prime Unified Service Monitor 9.0 Compatibility Matrix.
For documentation updates after publication, see Cisco.com.

Memory Usage for Multiple Phone Reports
Depending on the number of records reports, the system can handle only a certain number of large reports that are open at the same time. When a report is closed, the window task manager may not immediately show that the Tomcat memory usage is decreasing. However, it will free up memory for new reports to be opened.
We recommend that you close phone reports after you view them to ensure that system performance is not degraded.
