Analyzing Cisco CallManager Dial Plan Configuration


Dialed Number Analyzer allows analysis of a configured Cisco CallManager dial plan and provides details on the call flow of dialed digits. In the predeployment stage, you can use the tool to identify problems in a complex dial plan and tune the dial plan. You can also use the tool after the dial plan is deployed, to identify real-time problems in the call flow of dialed digits.

When you use Dialed Number Analyzer to analyze dial plans for a cluster of Cisco CallManager systems and numerous devices, you may be able to access the windows and enter data for analysis quickly. However, you may not be able to see any results when you perform the analysis. The following error message displays:

Check if the DNA service is running. If the DNA service is running, then Dialed Number Analyzer is still initializing. Wait for a few minutes for Dialed Number Analyzer to initialize and try again.

This message displays because Dialed Number Analyzer is registering the devices in the Cisco CallManager system. Clear the error message and wait for a few minutes before you perform analysis.

Use the following topics to understand how to use the Service Control window and how to use Dialed Number Analyzer to analyze a Cisco CallManager dial plan configuration:

Database Synchronization

Dialed Number Analyzer replicates and uses the Cisco CallManager database configuration to analyze calls in a dial plan. For this reason, make sure that Dialed Number Analyzer is in sync with the Cisco CallManager database before you use the tool to perform any analysis. When changes are made to the Cisco CallManager database, ensure that changes are reflected in Dialed Number Analyzer to facilitate analysis by using current data. Examples of database changes include addition or deletion of devices, modification of route patterns, modification of gateway configuration settings, and so on.

You can enable Dialed Number Analyzer to receive database change notifications from Cisco CallManager whenever database changes are made by using Cisco CallManager Administration. Use the following steps to enable database change notifications to Dialed Number Analyzer.

Procedure


Step 1 In Dialed Number Analyzer, choose Service > Control Center.

The Control Center window displays. Database Synchronization displays under the Service Name-Database column.

Step 2 By default, the system enables Database Synchronization when Dialed Number Analyzer is installed. To keep database synchronization enabled, do not modify this setting.



Note Each time that you disable and enable database synchronization again, stop and start the Dialed Number Analyzer service to ensure that Dialed Number Analyzer is in sync with the Cisco CallManager database. For instructions on starting the Dialed Number Analyzer service, see "Starting Dialed Number Analyzer Service" section.

Simple Analysis by Using the Analyzer Window

Simple analysis involves entering calling party and called party digits in Dialed Number Analyzer and choosing a calling search space for the analysis. Dialed Number Analyzer uses this calling search space and analyzes the dialed digits. You need not choose specific devices or provide any other input. Dialed Number Analyzer allows analysis of a route pattern, translation pattern, phone DN or CTI Route Point.

Use this procedure only when you want to perform a quick analysis by entering dialed digits and selecting a calling search space. Analysis results that are obtained by using this procedure do not display details like partitions, AAR calling search space details and so on in the Calling Party Information section. This is because you do not choose a specific device to dial digits, instead you enter a calling party number that is not associated with any device configured in the Cisco CallManager system.

Access Dialed Number Analyzer and use the following procedure to perform a simple analysis.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Analysis > Analyzer.

The Analyzer window displays. Enter input for the analyzer in this window.

Step 2 In the Calling Party field, enter the calling party digits. This number does not have to be associated with a device.

By default, 1000 displays in this field.

Step 3 In the Dialed Digits field, enter the digits that are to be called by the calling party.

Step 4 From the Calling Search Space drop-down list box, choose the calling search space that is to be used to analyze the dialed digits. A calling search space comprises a collection of partitions that are searched to determine how a dialed number should be routed.

Step 5 Click Do Analysis to start the analysis or click Clear to clear the fields and to re-enter data.

When you click Do Analysis, Dialed Number Analyzer analyzes the dialed digits and displays the results in a new window called Analyzer Output window. You can simply view the results or save the results in a file format on your PC for later use.

To save the results, use Steps 6, 7, 8, and 9; otherwise skip to Step 10.

Step 6 To save the results, in the upper, right corner of the Analyzer Output window, click the Save Result link.

The File Download dialog displays.

Step 7 Click Save.

The Save As dialog displays. Browse to a location on your PC where you want to save the file.

Step 8 Click Save.

The results get saved in an XML file on your PC. The saved file has the following naming convention:

DialedNumberAnalyzerOutput_<dialeddigits>.xml

where <dialeddigits> specifies the digits that are entered in the Dialed Digits field.

Step 9 In the Download Complete dialog box, click Close to complete the Save As procedure.


Note For instructions on how to view the saved XML file in the browser, see the "Viewing Dialed Number Analyzer Output Files" section.
