Preface

Preface

This preface describes the purpose, audience, organization, and conventions of this guide, and provides information on how to obtain related documentation.


Note


Cisco Unified Contact Center Express and Cisco Unified IP IVR will be referred to as Unified CCX in the rest of this document.


The preface covers these topics:

Purpose

The Cisco Unified Serviceability Administration Guide provides description and procedures for:
  • Configuring alarms and traces for platform components and
  • SNMP for platform and Unified CCX components

through Cisco Unified Serviceability web interface of Unified CCX 9.0(1).


Note


For configuration of alarms and traces for Unified CCX components, see Cisco Unified CCX Serviceability Administration Guide.


Use this guide with the documentation for your configuration:

Cisco Unified CCX

Cisco Unified CCX Serviceability Administration Guide and Cisco Unified CCX Real-Time Monitoring Tool Administration Guide.
These documents provide the following information:
  • Cisco Unified CCX Serviceability Administration Guide—This document provides description and procedures for configuring alarms, traces, service parameters, performance configuration, and logging through Unified CCX Serviceability.
  • Cisco Unified CCX Real-Time Monitoring Tool Administration Guide—This document describes how to use RTMT, a tool that allows you to monitor many aspects of the system (critical services, alerts, performance counters, and so on).

Tip


For Unified CCX, you must perform serviceability-related tasks in both Cisco Unified Serviceability and Cisco Unified CCX Serviceability; for example, you may need to start and stop services, configure alarms and traces in both applications to troubleshoot a problem.


Audience

The Cisco Unified Serviceability Administration Guide assists administrators that configure, troubleshoot, and support Cisco Unified CCX. This guide requires knowledge of telephony and IP networking technology.
