Cisco Voice Log Translator Release Notes for Software Release 2.7(8)
Published: December 20, 2012
Use these release notes with the Cisco Voice Log Translator (Cisco VLT) running software release 2.7(8).
These release notes provide the following information:
Cisco VLT is a troubleshooting tool that reads complex System Diagnostic Interface (SDI) trace-log message files from a Cisco Unified Communications Manager and translates them into a user-friendly, English-based format. You can sort, organize, analyze, and interpret messages and display raw or translated message text using offline message files on your system.
One of the following operating systems running on an x86 hardware platform is required to support Cisco VLT:
•Windows 7 Operating System, Windows Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000
•Red Hat Linux version 9 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3.0

New and Changed Information
Cisco VLT software release 2.7(8) supports Cisco Unified Communications Manager 9.0, 8.0, 7.1, 7.0, 6.1, 6.0, Cisco Unified CallManager 4.0, 4.1, 5.0, 5.1, and Cisco CallManager 3.3.
This section provides a list of known limitations in Cisco VLT version 2.7(8).
•Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.1 SDI trace files may contain fragmented SIP logs. Cisco VLT will display these as Invalid Log.
•When running in plug-in mode, the Open Trace File dialog box does not close after logging off Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT).
•The SIP channel may not be consistent; sometimes device name will be displayed instead of IP address.
•The SCCP channel may not be consistent for Cisco CallManager 3.3 SDI trace files; the device name may be displayed instead of IP address.
•The simple or detailed translation for some SCCP messages may not be correctly formatted because of inconsistent trace formats. The SCCP messages can also require additional translation.
•There may be invalid SCCP messages or SCCP messages without directional information because of inconsistent trace formats.
•Cisco VLT files installed on the client machine may remain if Cisco VLT is uninstalled without closing all standalone Cisco VLT and RTMT instances when Cisco VLT is launched using plug-in mode.
•Cisco VLT cannot parse interleaved H245 traces. The H245 messages are logged in the interleaved formatted trace files different from other protocol messages due to an additional/extra new line character that is included. Since the parsing logic is generic, this additional/extra new line causes parsing logic to break and hence the H245 messages are not parsed correctly.
There are no caveats for Cisco VLT software release 2.7(8).
