Introduction

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

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.

New and Changed Features

The following are the new features, and changes in Prime UOM 9.0:

Support for 60,000 phones. See Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0 Installation Guide for more details.

Support for Windows 2008 R2. See Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0 Installation Guide for more details.

Provides graphs and reports on route groups utilization to enable you to manage the trunks and route groups better.

Includes portlets that provide information on server usage, instant messaging usage, conferencing usage, and general information on the Cisco Unified Presence Servers deployed in your network.

Support for new events related to Cisco Unified Presence Server, Cisco Unified Borderless Element, and Route Groups.

Support for VG-350 voice gateways. See Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0 Supported Devices and Interoperable Software Table for more details.

Support for UCC Express Performance Polling. See Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0 Supported Devices and Interoperable Software Table for more details.

Important Notes

The following topics include important information:

Installation Notes

Memory Usage for Multiple Phone Reports

Installation Notes

See the Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0 Installation Guide for details on installation, upgrade/migration, and getting started.

The upgrade paths that have been tested and are supported in Prime UOM 9.0 are:

Release 8.7 to 9.0

Release 8.6 to 9.0

The following upgrade paths are not supported:

Multiple end-customer deployment to Enterprise deployment or vice versa in not supported for any version.

Direct upgrade from Prime UOM releases earlier than 8.6.

For more information see the following guides:

Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 8.6 Installation Guide

Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 8.7 Installation Guide

If you are running Prime UOM 8.7 or 8.6, see Cisco Prime Unified Operations Manager 9.0 Installation Guide for complete details on installation and upgrade procedures.


Note If you run Prime USM on the server with Prime UOM, be sure to review Cisco Prime Unified Service Monitor Release Notes 9.0 before you install Prime UOM.


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.

Known Problems

Table 1 describes known problems that exist in this release. To get more details about the known issues and the possible workaround for a particular bug, use the Bug Toolkit. See Using the Bug Toolkit for details about how to use the Bug Toolkit.
