Cisco Unified Reporting web application, which is accessed at the
Cisco Unified Communications Manager console, generates reports for troubleshooting or inspecting cluster data. This tool provides a snapshot of cluster data without requiring multiple steps to find the data. The tool design facilitates gathering data from existing sources, comparing the data, and reporting irregularities.
A report combines data from one or more sources on one or more servers into one output view. For example, you can view a report that shows the hosts file for all servers in the cluster. The application gathers information from the publisher server and each subscriber server. A report provides data for all active cluster nodes that are accessible at the time that the report is generated.
Some reports run checks to identify conditions that could impact cluster operations. Status messages indicate the outcome of every data check that is run.
