You view alarm information to determine whether Cisco CallManager problems exist. Use the Event Viewer program to view alarm information that is sent to the Event Log. You can view alarm information sent to the SDI or SDL trace log file in text or XML format. Use Trace to view the SDI or SDL log files in XML format or use a text editor to view the SDI or SDL log files in text format. (Trace supports text format as well.) Use CiscoWorks2000 report viewer to view Syslog messages.
