Starting the Microsoft Performance Program

You can use the Microsoft Performance application to monitor various conditions on a Cisco Unified CallManager system. For example, you can find the number of calls in progress on a particular Cisco Unified CallManager node at any time or the number of calls attempted on a Cisco Unified CallManager system.

Setting up Performance can yield statistics that are customized to reflect your Cisco Unified CallManager system. For example, you may use the information that Performance returns to manage traffic on the system by monitoring the number of calls in progress at any particular time.

This section describes how to start the Performance tool and add Cisco Unified CallManager object counters for monitoring.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Performance.

The Performance window displays.

Step 2 Choose the Cisco Unified CallManager server that you will be monitoring. Local computer name is shown by default. To monitor a remote machine, you can overwrite the local computer name with the remote computer name.

Step 3 Use the Explain button to get a description of each available counter.

Step 4 Choose a Cisco Unified CallManager Performance object.

Step 5 Choose the counter or counters that describe the statistics that you want to monitor.

Step 6 Click the Add button to start gathering data for the counters that you specified.

Viewing Performance Statistics

The statistical data that is retrieved through Performance provides the information that you need for analysis and interpretation of any local or remote Cisco Unified CallManager system. You may choose specific counters to return data describing changing activity levels in your system, or you may choose to react as events occur.

Performance visually formats the statistical data to facilitate your quick comprehension of the state of the system. Using the visual formats provided, you can display Cisco Unified CallManager data in graphical, histogram, or report form.

This section describes how to report Cisco Unified CallManager performance statistics.

Procedure


Step 1 Choose Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Performance.

The Performance graphical interface displays.

Step 2 Choose the Cisco Unified CallManager system that you will be monitoring. If the system is local, Cisco Unified CallManager detects the name automatically.

Step 3 Click the View Graph, View Histogram, or View Report icon located at the top of the Performance window to graphically display your statistics.

Each report form offers a different visual rendition of the statistical data. You can repeat the process to choose the most effective display.

You can add counters from other objects to see how dynamic data affects your Cisco Unified CallManager data. For purposes of illustration, Figure 23-1 shows active operating system conditions with inactive Cisco Unified CallManager data. When your Cisco Unified CallManager data is added, you can interpret that information in the context of any number of system counters.

By combining standard counters with the Cisco Unified CallManager criteria, you better understand your systems, so you can manage them more efficiently.
