About SNMP

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) feature lets you monitor Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express the same way you manage other devices on the network. By using an SNMP management tool and configuring it appropriately, you can obtain network status information and gain access to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system.


Note There are two versions of SNMP: version 1 is the older version and version 2 is the newer version. Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express works with both versions.


The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express SNMP feature supports all the standard Management Information Base (MIB) MIB II queries and a set of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express MIB traps. The MIB II queries include information such as the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express server name, location, and contact name, plus various statistics regarding the network interface.

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express SNMP feature also supports the following non-standard MIBs. Import these MIBs into your network management server before making any SNMP requests:

CISCO-CDP-MIB.my: Cisco Discovery Protocol

CISCO-SMI.my: Cisco Enterprise Structure of Management Information

CISCO-TC.my: Cisco MIB Textual Conventions

CISCO-VTP-MIB.my: Cisco Voice Technology Protocol MIB

CISCO-LATITUDE-MIB.my: Cisco Latitude MIB

You can download these MIB files from ftp://ftp-sj.cisco.com/pub/mibs/v2/.

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system uses traps to report certain events. Table 13-1 describes the conditions that generate Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express traps.

Table 13-1 Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express SNMP Traps 

This Alarm
Is Generated Whenever

Server startup

The server restarts or crashes (cold start).

Major software alarm

A major software failure occurs.

Minor software alarm

A minor software failure occurs.


Each major and minor software notification includes an integer alarm code that indicates which software module and server reported the alarm.


Note Normally, each alarm instance generates a separate notification. In some cases, however, one specific incident could trigger multiple types of alarms.

Voice Conferencing Licenses

Limit the number of concurrent calls and telephony audio ports, as well as the number of concurrent users of the lite meeting room, to the number of voice conferencing licenses that you have purchased. This is enforced by the VUI; callers in excess of the licensed number get a busy signal and cannot join the meeting.

Voice conferencing licenses work in conjunction with the maxvoice license, which denotes the maximum number of voice conferencing licenses that can be used on this particular system, due to system restraints. If the voice conferencing license count exceeds the value of the maxvoice license, the system uses the value of the maxvoice license instead.


Note If you purchase and install a new maxvoice license, it overwrites the old one. It does not add the new licenses to the previous value.


If you do not purchase any voice conferencing licenses, the system gives you six default licenses.

Web Conferencing Licenses

Limit the number of concurrent web conferencing participants using the full meeting room to the number of web conferencing licenses that you have purchased. This is enforced when participants try to enter the web meeting room; participants in excess of the licensed number cannot join the web meeting room.

Web conferencing licenses work in conjunction with the maxweb license, which denotes the maximum number of web conferencing licenses that can be used on this particular system, due to system restraints. If the web conferencing license count exceeds the value of the maxweb license, the system uses the value of the maxweb license instead.


Note If you purchase and install a new maxweb license, it overwrites the old one. It does not add the new licenses to the previous value.


If you do not purchase any web conferencing licenses, the system gives you six default licenses for the first 60 days after installation, but they are deleted after that.


Note If you want all or most users to be able to schedule full web meetings, purchase an equal number of web conferencing and voice conferencing licenses.

System Software License

License for the underlying software platform, including the operating system. This is the only license that is specific to the software version. It expires if you upgrade the software past the licensed version. The version specified by the system software license must be greater than or equal to the first digit of the installed software. If it is not, the system does not honor any of the other licenses.

You can only get a system software license by purchasing a base software SKU, a software version upgrade, or a Cisco Conference Connection to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express upgrade. You do not get one when you purchase a capacity or platform upgrade.


Note (Release 1.1.1 and later releases) The system software license enables the other licenses. If you do not install the system software license, or if the version is obsolete, the system behaves as if there are no voice or web conferencing licenses installed. The system ignores any voice or web conferencing licenses and uses the default values for those (six each). (The only exception is if you have a web conferencing license installed with no system software license, then the system honors the six web conferencing licenses as permanent, meaning they will not expire after 60 days.)

If you later buy more voice or web conferencing licenses, when you install the new voice or web conferencing licenses, the system will still ignore them and operate with the default values (six each). You must install the system software license for the system to use the voice and web conferencing licenses.



Note The Administration Center works regardless of the licenses.

About Backing Up and Restoring Data

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express backup and restore functions ensure that the system can recover with minimal data loss in case of a database or system failure or corruption. See the following sections:

About Backing Up the Database

About Cleaning Up the Database Backup Files

About Archiving the Database Backup Files and Other External Files

About Restoring the Data

About Backing Up Recordings

Configuring Backups

About Backing Up the Database

There are three types of database backups:

L0 (Level 0) backup. This is the most common database backup. This is a complete backup of the database, both physical and logical, and it is sufficient to restore data from it.

L1 (Level 1) backup. The L1 backup is an incremental backup. It contains a backup of all the data that has been changed since the last L0 backup. It takes much less disk space than an L0 backup; however, it cannot be used for a full restore. If the system fails, you must use both the L0 and L1 backup files to restore data.

L2 (Level 2) backup. The L2 backup is incremental to the L1 backup, so it needs both the L0 and the L1 backups to restore data.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express uses a combination of L0, L1, and L2 backups and uses an Informix command called ontape for the backup mechanism.

The database backup file is physically located on the system disk, which is the same physical device on which the rest of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system exists. The system disk can contain up to three automatically-created L0 backups: the current L0, plus the previous one or two L0 backups. The L1 and L2 backups are also kept there. All the older backups are removed from the system disk during the cleanup process.


Caution Use caution if you manually modify the backup files on the local disk or in the archive location. For successful data restoration, the three levels of backup files must be present in the correct order. For example, if the correct L0 and L2 backup files are present while the appropriate L1 backup file is missing, then the data cannot be restored.

You can enable or disable an automatic backup. If the automatic backup is enabled, an L0 backup happens twice a week, every Monday and Thursday at 11:00PM, local server time. The L1 backup is run each day at 1:00AM, local server time, while the L2 backups are done daily at 4:00AM, 8:00AM, 12:00PM, 4:00PM, and 8:00PM, local server time. The schedule is stored in the crontab file.


Note Advanced system administrators can change the frequency of the automatic backups by editing the crontab file. Be careful when modifying the cron schedule, which determines the order of the backups.


If automatic backup is disabled, then make sure that you run only one backup at a time. For information about manual backups, see the Troubleshooting Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express.

The automatic backup process also incorporates archiving (if enabled) and cleanup. This ensures that if there is a database corruption or disk failure, in the worst case, less than four hours of data is lost.

About Cleaning Up the Database Backup Files

The cleanup process occurs before every scheduled backup in the crontab file. During the cleanup process, the following files are deleted:

Backup files older than seven days.

Unusable files, such as L1 and L2 backup files that are older than the oldest remaining L0 backup file.


Note If you disable automatic backups, the cleanup process continues to run as scheduled in the crontab file. Therefore, if you want to keep backup files that are older than seven days, then you must archive them.

About Archiving the Database Backup Files and Other External Files

Archiving is the process of storing database backup files to a remote system over the network, together with other critical external files, by using rsync and the SSH data transfer. Archiving makes a remote copy of all the backup files and the required external files. If a newly archived file has the same name as an existing archived file, the new file overwrites the old file.

After archiving the database, the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system is finished with the backup and restore process. Maintaining the archive and maintaining the remote system used for storing the archive is the responsibility of the system administrator.

Automatic archiving can be enabled or disabled. When enabled, it is initiated by and happens after the automatic database backup.


Note The remote server to which you archive files must support rsync and SSH connections. For example:

To archive to a UNIX or Linux server, SSH service and rsync must be enabled on that server. Both SSH service and rsync are included in most UNIX and Linux distributions.

To archive to a Windows-based server, both an SSH server and an rsync utility must be installed on that server.

About Restoring the Data

Restoring the data recreates database server data from backed-up storage spaces and logical log files. You may need to restore your data if you need to replace a failed disk that contains database server data, there is a logic error in a program that has corrupted the database, you need to move your database server data to a new computer, or if a user accidentally corrupts or destroys data.

To restore data up to the time of the failure, you must have at least one L0 backup. The restore is done using the Informix command called ontape. Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express provides a script called restore.sh that guides you through the restore process. The script is in the $MP_DATABASE/db-maintenance directory.
