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.
