Using Path Analysis with Cisco Unified CallManager requires the installation of the Common Management Foundation 1.1.1 Voice Manager patch on the CiscoWorks2000 server.

Path Analysis Operation

Path Analysis, a diagnostic application, traces connectivity between two specified points on a network. It analyzes both physical and logical paths (Layer 2 and Layer 3) that are taken by packets that flow between those points.

After a call completes, PathTool traces the route of audio packets by specifying the directory number of the calling and called parties. This applies to calls among any of the following endpoints: Cisco Unified IP Phones, analog devices that are connected to a station gateway, or trunk gateways (analog or digital).

For more information, consult CiscoWorks2000 online help.

The information that is presented here assists you in setting up Cisco Unified CallManager. You can display the paths that are traced in the form of maps, trace logs, or tables in CiscoWorks2000 Campus Manager.

Call Detail Records Logging

You can activate voice over IP (VoIP) traces only when Cisco Unified CallManager is installed with call detail record (CDR) logging enabled. The default status specifies disabled.
