Predefined Cisco Unified Communications Manager Objects     Overview       

RTMT displays information on predefined Cisco Unified Communications Manager objects in the monitoring pane when you select Communications Manager in the quick launch channel. The tool monitors the predefined objects on all servers in an cluster, if applicable.


Tip The polling rate in each precanned monitoring window remains fixed, and the default value specifies 30 seconds. If the collecting rate for the AMC (Alert Manager and Collector) service parameter changes, the polling rate in the precanned window also updates. In addition, the local time of the RTMT client application and not the backend server time, provides the basis for the time stamp in each chart.

For more information on Service Parameters, refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide or Cisco Unity Connection System Administration Guide.


Table 5-1 provides information on the predefined object that RTMT monitors.


Tip To zoom in on the monitor of a predefined object, click and drag the left mouse button over the area of the chart in which you are interested. Release the left mouse button when you have the selected area. RTMT updates the monitored view. To zoom out and reset the monitor to the initial default view, press the "R" key.

Monitoring Services

The Service monitoring category monitors the activities of Cisco TFTP requests, database activities, and heartbeat of the server or of different servers in a cluster (if applicable).

The Cisco TFTP service builds and serves files that are consistent with the trivial file transfer protocol, which is a simplified version of the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). Cisco TFTP builds configuration files and serves embedded component executables, ringer files, and device configuration files. You can view the total Cisco TFTP requests, requests not found, and requests that were aborted.

The tool (RTMT) monitors the heartbeat of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco TFTP services for the server or for different servers in a cluster (if applicable). The heartbeat acts as an indicator of the life of whatever it is monitoring. When the heartbeat is lost, a blinking icon appears in the lower, right corner of the RTMT window. To find when the heartbeat loss was detected, click the blinking icon. An e-mail can notify you of the heartbeat loss, if you configure the system to do so.

The database summary provides connection information for the server or for each server in a cluster (if applicable), such as the change notification requests that are queued in the database, change notification requests that are queued in memory, the total number of active client connections, the number of devices that are queued for a device reset, replicates created, and replication status.

Table 5-3 provides information about the service objects that RTMT monitors, the alert, thresholds, and defaults. For information on daily reports for CTI and Cisco TFTP usage statistics, refer to Cisco Unified Serviceability Administration Guide.

The Device Search menu comprises the following items on which you can search: phones, gateway devices, H.323 devices, CTI devices, voice-messaging devices, media resources, hunt lists, and SIP trunks.

You can search on any device in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system and choose the status of the devices, including registered, unregistered, rejected, any status, and devices that are only configured in the database. You can also search by any model, or a specific device model, and set up criteria that include several different attributes. Within the phone search, you can also search on the basis of phone protocol.

RTMT queries RIS to find the matching device. Results display in a table with a row for each matched device, a column for each of the specified attributes, and a time stamp of the device that has been opened/closed and the application that controls the device media.

If you have Cisco Unified Communications Manager clusters and you search for a device by choosing the any status option, RTMT does not display a snapshot of the matched device type, but rather it displays data for that device type from the RIS database for all specified Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers for a period of time. As a result, you may see multiple entries of a device with multiple statuses (Registered, Unregistered, and so on) in RTMT.

When you see multiple entries of a device, the current status of the device reflects the entry that has the latest time stamp. By configuring the RIS Unused Cisco CallManager Device Store Period service parameter for the Cisco RIS Data Collector service in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, you can configure the period of time that the RIS database keeps information on unregistered or rejected device. Refer to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide for more information on configuring service parameter.


Tip To find the matching item, RTMT requires that you activate the Cisco RIS Data Collector service in the Service Activation window.


Results display in a table with a row for each matched device, a column for each of the specified attributes, and a time stamp of the device that has been opened/closed and the application that controls the device media.

The phone summary provides information on the number of registered phones, phones that are running SIP, phones that are running SCCP, partially registered phones, and the number of failed registration attempts.

Additional Information

See the "Related Topics" section.

Reporting on Learned Patterns and SAF Forwarders for the Call Control Discovery Feature

Learned pattern reports and SAF forwarder reports support the call control discovery feature. When you configure the call control discovery feature, Cisco Unified Communications Manager advertises itself and its hosted DN patterns to other remote call-control entities that use the SAF network. Likewise, these remote call-control entities advertise their hosted DN patterns, which Cisco Unified Communications Manager can learn and insert in digit analysis. For more information on the call control discovery feature, refer to the "Call Control Discovery" chapter in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide.

Learned Pattern reports include such information as learned pattern name, time stamp, reachability status for the pattern, remote call-control entity that hosts the pattern, the PSTN failover configuration, and the destination IP address and port. RTMT allows you to search based on different criteria; for example, if you specify a search for the remote call-control entity, all the learned patterns display for the remote call-control entity.

SAF Forwarder reports display information such as authentication status, registration status of SAF forwarders, and so on.

To access the Learned Patterns or SAF Forwarders reports in RTMT, perform the following procedure:

Procedure


Step 1 To access the report, perform one of the following tasks:

For Learned Patterns—From the RTMT menus, choose CallManager > Report > Learned Pattern. Or, Click the CallManager tab; then, click Learned Pattern.

For SAF Forwarders—From the RTMT menus, choose CallManager > Report > SAF Forwarders. Or, click the CallManager tab; then, click SAF Forwarders.

Step 2 Choose the node from the Select a Node drop-down list box.

For learned pattern reports, if the Cisco CallManager service is running but the CCD requesting service is not running on that node, a message displays that the CCD Report Service is not working after you choose the node. If the CCD requesting service is not active on the node that you choose, the report displays as empty.

Step 3 Review the data in the report, as described in Table 5-5 (for learned patterns) or Table 5-6 (for SAF forwarders).

Be aware that the learned pattern may be repeated in the report because the learned pattern may be coming from a different source; for example, it may be coming from a different IP address.

Table 5-5 Data from Learned Pattern Report 

Column
Description

Pattern

Displays the name of the learned pattern from the remote call-control entity.

TimeStamp

Displays the date and time that the local Cisco Unified Communications Manager marked the pattern as a learned pattern.

Status

Indicates whether the learned pattern was reachable or unreachable

Protocol

Displays the protocol for the SAF-enabled trunk that was used for the outgoing call to the learned pattern; if the remote call-control entity has QSIG tunneling configured for the SAF-enabled trunk, the data indicates that QSIG tunneling was used; for example, EMCA is listed along with H.323 in this column.

AgentID

Displays the name of the remote call-control entity that advertised the learned pattern

IP Address

Displays the IP address for the call control entity that advertised the learned pattern; Displays the port number that the call-control entity uses to listen for the call.

ToDID

Displays the PSTN failover configuration for the learned pattern.

CUCMNodeId

Displays the ID from the local Cisco Unified Communications Manager node.


Table 5-6 Data from SAF Forwarder Report 

Column
Description

Name

Displays the name of the SAF forwarder that you configured in the SAF Forwarder Configuration window in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

Description

Displays the description for the SAF forwarder that you configured in the SAF Forwarder Configuration window in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. If None displays, you did not enter a description for the SAF forwarder.

IP Address

Displays the IP address for the SAF forwarder, as configured in the SAF Forwarder Configuration window in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

Port

Indicates the port number that Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses to connect to the SAF forwarder; by default, Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses 5050.

Type

Indicates whether the SAF forwarder is classified as the primary or backup SAF forwarder.

Connection Status

Indicates whether Cisco Unified Communications Manager can connect to the SAF forwarder.

Authentication Type

Indicates that Cisco Unified Communications Manager used digest authentication to connect to the SAF forwarder.

Registration Status

Indicates whether the Cisco Unified Communications Manager is registered to the SAF forwarder.

Time Last Registered

Displays the date and time when the Cisco Unified Communications Manager last registered with the SAF forwarder.

No of Registered Applications

Displays the total number of CCD advertising and requesting services that are registered to the SAF forwarder.

No of Connection Re-Attempts

Displays the number of times that the call-control entity, in this case, the Cisco Unified Communications Manager, has attempted to connect to the SAF forwarder.


Step 4 After the data displays, if you want to filter the results based on specific criteria, click the Filter button; specific the criteria that you want to search, click Apply and then OK.

Step 5 To display the most current results, click Refresh.

Step 6 If you want to search on a specific string in the data, click the Find button, enter the string, then, click Find Next.

Step 7 If you want to save the results, click Save, and choose either XML or Text, depending on how you want to save the results. Browse to the location where you want to save the data, name the file that you want to save; then, click Save.


Monitoring Intercompany Media Services


Tip The polling rate in each precanned monitoring window remains fixed, and the default value specifies 30 seconds. If the collecting rate for the AMC (Alert Manager and Collector) service parameter changes, the polling rate in the precanned window also updates. In addition, the local time of the RTMT client application, not the backend server time, provides the basis for the time stamp in each chart.



Tip To zoom in on the monitor of a predefined object, click and drag the left mouse button over the area of the chart that interests you. Release the left mouse button when you have the selected area. RTMT updates the monitored view. To zoom out and reset the monitor to the initial default view, press the "R" key.


The Intercompany Media Services monitoring category monitors the following items:

Routing—Displays the total number of Cisco Intercompany Media Engine routes that Cisco Unified Communications Manager maintains. This total includes the following routes:

Learned routes that represent the phone numbers that the Cisco Intercompany Media Engine client learned and that exist in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager routing tables

Unique domains of peer enterprises for which Cisco Intercompany Media Engine routes exist

Published routes that represent the number of direct inward dialing numbers (DIDs) that were published successfully to the IME distributed hash table across all Cisco Intercompany Media Engine services

Rejected routes that represent the number of learned routes that got rejected because the administrator blocked them.

These charts represent the following performance counters for the Cisco IME Client performance object: RoutesLearned, DomainsUnique, RoutesPublished, and RoutesRejected.

To display information on routing, choose CallManager > Cisco IME Client > Routing.

Call Activities—Allows you to monitor the total number of Cisco Intercompany Media Engine calls. This total includes the following types of calls:

Calls that were attempted (including calls that were accepted, busy, no answer, and failed)

Calls that were received

Calls that were set up (that is, made by Cisco Unified Communications Manager and accepted by the remote party)

Calls that were accepted (that is, received by Cisco Unified Communications Manager and answered by the called party)

Calls that completed fallback to the PSTN

Calls that did not successfully fallback to the PSTN.

These charts represent the following performance counters for the Cisco IME Client performance object: CallsAttempted, CallAccepted, CallsReceived, CallsSetup, IMESetupsFailed, and FallbackCallsFailed.

To display information on call activities, choose CallManager > Cisco IME Client > Call Activities.
