Unanswered Question

Good day everybody!

Guys, I have a question about CTC - is there a way to autosave CTC logs?

'Coz everytime I restart CTC all logs are started from scratch...

I have this problem too.

No. If you want to archive your optical equipment logs using Cisco solutions, you'll need to step up to the Cisco Transport Manager (CTM) product.

Alternatively, depending on your needs, you could set your optical nodes to send syslog messages and/or SNMP traps to an external server running a product like Kiwi or Solarwinds Orion NPM.

Could you explain or elaborate on what you mean by CTC logs

CTC "logs" it's the History and Alarm tabs, where all the crashes are shown. Each time you restart CTC this information is lost.

I thought there was a way to prevent this, now I see I can't... Or as long as I write some kind of my own utility to do this. :)

The memory/buffer in the TCC card is limited so the history and alarms are overwritten with new ones once the buffer is full.

As suggessted by somebody in previous response you will need an EMS/NMS like Cisco Transport Manager for storage.
