Do you realise that Prognosis has been enhanced in 11.4 to provide information for various media devices at a per device level instead of per server level using multiple data sources?

 

Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) has multiple interfaces for people to retrieve information to monitor the health of various components within the system like AXL SOAP, SNMP and SOAP Perfmon. Usually multiple tools are needed to see these differnt data , but the power of Prognosis is the ability to combine all the data to provide users with a single and complete view. Let’s use the various Cisco Media Device records like Media Termination Point or Conference Bridge that was introduced in 11.4 as an example to walk through how Prognosis gather and combine this information.
