Collecting MIVR Logs in UCCX/ IP IVR

From Unified Contact Center Express (UCCX )8.x onwards, MIVR logs are part of "Log Profile". Log Profile is an aggregated entity that preserves trace settings of the following Cisco Unified CCX services:

  • Cisco Unified CCX Engine (Traces termed as MIVR)
  • Cisco Unified CCX Administration (Traces termed as MADM)
  • Cisco Unified CCX Cluster View Daemon (Traces termed as MCVD)

To collect MIVR traces, you need to use RTMT tool i.e. First you need to enable MIVR traces from UCCX serviceability page and then you can collect them using RTMT tool.


  • Cisco Unified CCX refers to Cisco Unified Contact Center Express
  • Unified IP/IVR refers to IP Enabled Interactive Voice Response System
  • RTMT refers to Real-Time Monitoring Tool
  • MIVR - Cisco Unified CCX Engine Traces termed as MIVR

About Real-Time Monitoring Tool

The Cisco Unified Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT), which runs as a client-side application, uses HTTPS and TCP to monitor system performance. RTMT can connect directly to devices via HTTPS to troubleshoot system problems.

RTMT allows you to perform the following tasks:

• Monitor a set of predefined management objects that monitor the health of the system.

• Generate various alerts, in the form of e-mails, for objects when values go over/below user-configured thresholds.

• Collect and view traces in various default viewers that exist in RTMT.

• View syslog messages in SysLog Viewer.

• Work with performance-monitoring counters.

How to Collect MIVR Traces using RTMT Tool ?

1. In RTMT tool, on the Left side pane, expand Tools & click on " Trace & Log Central ".

2. On the Right side pane, double click on "Collect Files " & select " Cisco Unified CCX Engine " service.

It would be helpful if someone would clarify "Check appropriate boxes under "Trace Filter Setting".

The image does not show any boxes checked and does not show all the options available.
