Gateway Utilization Reports Configuration

Only CAR administrators generate the gateway utilization report. The report provides an estimate of the utilization percentage of the gateway for the period and not the exact utilization. For example, the system calculates the utilization of a gateway between 11hrs-12hrs, as (number of calls in the 5-minute interval that used the gateway *100) / (maximum number of calls that could possibly use the gateway at any time). Maximum number of calls that are possible by using the gateway at any time = maximum number of ports for the gateway as configured in the CAR Gateway Configuration window. After calculating the utilization for each 5-minute sample for the whole 1-hour duration, the maximum utilization value found for that 1 hour displays in the report as the utilization for the time between 11hrs and 12hrs. Similarly, to get a utilization for the whole day, the whole day gets divided into samples of 5 minutes each, and maximum utilization is calculated. You can examine the usage based on each hour of a day or on a specified number of days for each week or month. Reports generate for each gateway that is chosen.

You can either view reports that the system automatically generates or generate new reports. Only CAR administrators can schedule reports for automatic generation. See the "CAR System Configuration" section, for more information.


Caution Use CAR only during off-peak hours. Otherwise, data collection and report generation could cause performance degradation on the Cisco Unified CallManager system.
