Offline Viewer for CUCM CDR Data

Unanswered Question
Jul 6th, 2009


Is it possible to view CDR data backed up from the CUCM by means of a offline viewer application. Are there such applications.

Is the CDR data needs to be analyzed in a future date using the old backup, how can this be achieved.

Hi Nikolay,

You can either use the CDR Analysis and Reporting Tool (CAR) inbuilt in the CUCM. However a better option would be to configure a 3rd party billing server and have the CUCM push the CDR data onto it so as to view the data and generate reports on it independant to the CUCM. This can also be used for looking at historical / archived CDR data. The following doc should be able to shed more light on this:

Hi Nikolay,

I don't know if this would work exactly for you but it might help -

This web-based software tool is called Variphy Insight and it takes the CUCM call data (both the CDR and CMR logs), and processes them into a SQL database (either MySQL or MS SQL).  Once in the SQL database, you can run queries, create reports, schedule reports delivered via email with Variphy Insight.  Submit online for a free download that's a full-version, no-feature-handicap trial - 90 days.

I have the same problem.

Did anyway find a way to view CDR data from a extracted DRS backup without doing a full restore?
