Setting Report Configuration Parameters
Cisco Unity Connection is automatically set to gather and store data from which you can generate reports. The parameters listed in this section can be adjusted, depending on the report output that you want to generate. All report parameter settings are found on the System Settings > Advanced > Reports page in Cisco Unity Connection Administration.
Reports data is gradually written over, depending on the parameters you set for retention of data. We recommend that if you want to keep reports for historical purposes, you develop a schedule for regularly generating reports, and save them in a location separate from the Unity Connection or Cisco Business Edition server.
Milliseconds Between Data Collection Cycles —Set by default to 30 minutes (1,800,000 milliseconds). This setting controls the amount of time Unity Connection waits between cycles of gathering report data.
Days to Keep Data in Reports Database —Set by default to 180 days. Note that even if you specify more than this number of days in the time range for the report you are generating, the number of days of data is limited by what you set here.
Maximum Records in Report Output —Set by default to 25,000 records. The maximum value allowed for this field is 30,000 records. If the report you want to generate exceeds the maximum number of records allowed, you can generate the report in pieces (for example by reducing the date range or number of user accounts included in each iteration).
Note The Maximum Records in Report Output setting for the User Message Activity Report has been restricted to 15,000 records—rather than the default of 25,000 records—because of the size of the report.
Minimum Records Needed to Display Progress Indicator —Set by default to 2,500 records. The maximum value allowed for this field is 10,000 records. The purpose of the progress indicator is to warn you if the report you request is large and likely to take a long time to complete. In Unity Connection, reports are generated from within a browser, and the browser session must be kept open while the report is being generated. Depending on the size of the database, and the type of report being generated, a report can take a long time to generate; meanwhile, you are unable to use the browser, and must keep the Unity Connection Administration session open.
Generating and Viewing Reports
When you generate a report, you can specify some or all of the following:
The objects (for example, user accounts or call handlers) to include in the report.
The date and time range to include.
The sort order for the data in the report.
You can select one of the following file formats for the report:
HTML file. Report output appears in your web browser.
Select this format to quickly view a small report.
For archiving purposes, we recommend that you generate PDF reports.
Text file (also known as a comma-separated, or CSV, file). Report output appears as a string of data, separated by commas.
Select this format if you want to view or print the information in another application, for example, a spreadsheet application.
Report output appears as a PDF that can be printed and saved.
We recommend that you select this format if you plan to archive reports.
The best time to generate reports is when the system is not busy: after regular business hours when Unity Connection is not processing many calls, or when there are no other processes running (for example, before or after a full backup). Requests to generate reports are queued. If multiple reports are generated at one time (from separate browsers), the reports wait in line and only one is processed at a time.
Generating large reports when the system is busy use system resources and could potentially result in slower response time for system users.
Note that reports cannot be scheduled in advance. If you shut down the Unity Connection or Cisco Business Edition server, or close the Unity Connection Administration browser session while reports are being generated, the report generation is cancelled.
