Introduction

This document describes the steps to install Dialed Number Analyzer and how to do simple analysis.Dailed Number Analyzer allows you to test and diagnose a deployed Cisco Unified CallManager dial plan configuration, analyze the test results and use the results to tune the dial plan.

Installation of Dialed Number Analyzer

You can install Dialed Number Analyzer on any Cisco CallManager node in a cluster, either Publisher or Subscriber. Install Dialed Number Analyzer preferably on a Publisher. It installs as an NT service on the Cisco CallManager server and can be accessed directly from the server where it is installed or from a remote PC through a web URL.

Steps to install Dialed Number Analyzer

  • In CUCM, choose Application > Install Plugins.

  • Find Dialed Number Analyzer Plugin.

  • Click the executable icon for Dialed Number Analyzer Plugin for InstallShield Wizard.


  • Click Open

.

  • Click Next at the Welcome to the InstallShield Wizard for Cisco Dialed Number Analyzer window.The Enter Private Phrase window displays.


  • Enter the private phrase that you used at the time of installing Cisco CallManager Administration in the Enter Private Phrase window

.

  • Click Next.

         

  • Click Install.

  • Click Finish.


Cisco Dialed Number Analyzer service will be installed on the machine.Restart Cisco Database Layer Monitor service on CUCM.

How to do Analysis using Analyzer

Simple analysis involves :-

1. Calling party.

2.Called party digits.

3.Calling search space.

Dialed Number Analyzer uses this calling search space and analyzes the dialed digits. Analysis results that are obtained by using this procedure do not display details like partitions, AAR calling search space details, and so on in the Calling Party Information section. Enter a calling party number that is not associated with a device that is configured in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system, because you do not choose a specific device to dial digits.

You can enter numerals, the symbols # and *, and the alphabet letters A, a, B, b, C, c, D, and d in the Dialed Digits and Calling Party fields for analysis.

Access Dialed Number Analyzer and use the following procedure to perform a simple analysis.


Step 1 Choose Analysis > Analyzer. Enter input for the analyzer in this window.

Step 2 In the Calling Party field, enter the calling party digits. You do not have to associate this number with a device.By default, 1000 is displayed in this field.


Step 3 In the Dialed Digits field, enter the digits that the calling party is to call.

Step 4 In the Pattern Analysis field, check the checkbox corresponding to SIP Analysis, if applicable, and choose Domain Route or IP Route.

Step 5 From the Calling Search Space drop-down list box, choose the calling search space used to analyze the dialed digits. A calling search space comprises a collection of partitions that are searched to determine how a dialed number should be routed.

Step 6 From the Device Time Zone drop-down box, choose the time zone of the calling party. The time zone is displayed by default. This time zone represents the time zone information from the operating system of the server where Cisco Unified Communications Manager is installed.

Step 7 If Time of Day routing is enabled in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, choose the time zone, date, and time settings for analysis. If Time of Day routing is not enabled, leave the default settings.The local time and date display by default in the Date and Time drop-down list boxes. This time and date represent the time and date information from the operating system of the server where Cisco Unified Communications Manager is installed.


From the Time Zone drop-down list box, choose the time zone that Dialed Number Analyzer must use for analysis. Greenwich Standard Time (GMT) is displayed by default.

From the Date drop-down list boxes, choose the year, month, and date that Dialed Number Analyzer must use for analysis.

From the Time drop-down list boxes, choose the hour, minute, second, and millisecond that Dialed Number Analyzer must use for analysis.

Step 8 To start the analysis, click Do Analysis or to clear the fields and to reenter data, click Clear.

After you click Do Analysis, Dialed Number Analyzer analyzes the dialed digits and displays the results in a new window that is called DNA Analysis Output window. You can simply view the results or save the results in a file format on your PC for later use.


Step 9 To save the results, in the upper, right corner of the DNA Analysis Output window, click Save.

Step 10 Click Save.


Step 11 Click Save.The system saves the results in an XML file on your PC. The saved file has the following naming convention:

dnaOutput_<callingparty>_<dialeddigits>.xml

where <callingparty> and <dialeddigits> specify the digits that are entered in the Calling Party and Dialed Digits fields, respectively.

Step 12 In the Download Complete dialog box, click Close to complete the Save As procedure.

Step 13 Close the DNA Analysis Output window.

How to view Output files

Step 1 Choose Analysis > View File.

Step 2 The View File window is displayed.


Step 3 In the Select a File to View field, click Browse. Browse to the location on your PC where the required output file is located and choose it. An example of an output file follows.


DialedNumberAnalyzerOutput_2002.xml

where 2002 represents the dialed digits that are specified during analysis.

Step 4 Click View File.Results Summary section expands to show the summary. Click the plus icon to expand the required results section to view the details.

Sample  Analysis

This analysis assumes the following setup in Cisco Unified Communications Manager:

Phone—1234567 in partition 'ABCPartition'

Line Calling Search Space—ALL (ALL CSS has ABCPartition and xyPartition)

Route Filter—RF-xy (LONG-DISTANCE-DIRECT-DIAL EXISTS AND AREA-CODE == 408). This route pattern selects RouteList 'RL1'. RL1 uses RG1 and RG2.

RG1 configuration includes an intercluster trunk as 10.77.31.206, with route group level calling and called party transformations. RG2 configuration includes an intercluster trunk 10.77.31.231, with QSIG tunneled protocol.

Route Pattern—9.@ in partition 'xyPartition', where:

•Offnet Pattern (Outside Dial Tone) is checked.

•Require Forced Authorization Code is checked.

•Require Client Matter Code is checked.

•Authorization Level equals 155.

Associate the route pattern with the RL1 route list and route filter RF-xy.

Configure the intercluster Trunk 10.77.31.206 as follows:

•Tunneled Protocol—QSIG.

•Call Classification—Use System Default.

•Inbound Fast Start—Disabled.

•Outbound Fast Start—Enabled.

•Codec For Outbound FastStart—G711 mu-law 64k.

Configure the intercluster Trunk 10.77.31.231 as follows:

•Tunneled Protocol—QSIG.

•Call Classification—Use System Default.

•Inbound Fast Start—Disabled.

•Outbound Fast Start—Disabled.

Procedure

1. Access Dialed Number Analyzer and choose Analysis > Analyzer.

2. In the Analyzer window, enter 1234567 in the Calling Party field.

3. In the Dialed Digits field, enter 914089027872.

4. From the Calling Search Space drop-down list box, choose ALL.

5. Leave the default values in the Device Time Zone field, Cisco Unified Communications Manager system Time Zone, Date, and Time fields.

6.Click Do Analysis.

The results display in a new window that is called Dialed Number Analyzer Results window. The Results Summary section expands and shows summary information.To expand all the nodes in the window and view all values, click Expand All or to close all the nodes in the window, click Collapse All.
