CUCM Trace Lookup for different scenarios

We have a Multi-Services Voice Debug Lookup Tool for different troubleshooting scenarios located here: www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk1077/technologies_tech_note09186a0080207ec6.shtml


This document indicates the different combination of traces  that are required by TAC in different scenarios so that customers can  provide complete information to the CSE at the beginning of the case  itself. This saves time and allows us to solve the cases faster as  majority (if not all) of the right information is given to us, and we do  not need to ask for it again. This document only mentions the traces  required from the call manager side of the issue. If other applications  such as Attendant Console, UCCX, gateways are involved, we will need the  respective traces from there as well.


There is a Cisco Support Forums document that indicates the  locations of the traces for different services in call manager. This can  be used in case the RTMT tool is not functioning as expected, and when  solving the main problem is a priority. This document is located here: supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-16943


NOTE 1: Please make sure that the traces for the  services in question (e.g. Cisco Call Manager, Cisco Extension Mobility,  Cisco Dirsync) are at the highest level possible during the occurence  of issue or when re-creating the issue. Traces not set to the highest  level are incomplete.


I have specified a few scenarios below that are commonly faced by the customer. This can be used as a reference.

NOTE 2: The required traces have to be collected from all  servers in the cluster to account for SDL communication between the  servers for call processing or media resources.

I am attaching a few images here of the traces that are usually collected from the "Collect Files" option in RTMT.

    1.CALL ROUTING

         a. Detailed Cisco Call Manager Traces

         Please make sure that the SIP Call Processing Traces and  SIP Stack traces are also checked in case you have any SIP  devices/trunks involved in the call flow. SIP Stack traces should be  enabled when the call volume is not very high as it takes up more CPU  cycles, leaving less available for call processing.

         SoftKey traces are also important and can be turned on.

         We don't need to change the level of SDL traces, unless explicitly asked for.

         b. Event Viewer - Application and Event Viewer - System logs.

         c. Timestamps of call failures, Calling and Called numbers.

         d. Detailed Call Flow (Devices involved in the call flow & Protocols).

    2.HIGH CPU/MEMORY UTILIZATION

         Please collect all of the below traces for a particular  time period before the problem began till after the problem went away.  For instance, if we started observing high CPU or memory usage at 4 P.M.  and the problem went away by 5 P.M., then we would collect traces for a  time interval of 3:30 P.M. to 5:30 P.M. This time interval can vary  from one issue to another, and also based on the customer set up.

Thanks guys!

Cisco Employee

Very well done Sreekanth, would definately save a lot of time

Hey Sree,

Can we also include the logs to be collected for the 'Corporate Directory' issues which is quite common.

Logs required :

+ CCMCIP logs (Debug)

+ Simultaneous Pcaps from the IP phone and CUCM

+ Cisco Tomcat Logs

 

Regards,
