This topic is a chance to discuss more about how to read Cisco Unified Communications trace files. In this session, Cisco Designated VIP Maren Mahoney will answer questions about how to examine, locate and extract information from CUCM trace files. While most questions about trace files are about call setup and troubleshooting, questions about other trace files (DirSync, ILS, CTI Manager, etc.) are welcome and encouraged.

In addition, Maren will provide the best tips and tricks to help you understand and fix different issues such as: what trace fill to poll, how to add router/CUBE debugs to a trace file for telephony troubleshooting and how to follow a single call through multiple trace files. As well as the recommended tools for parsing a trace file.

Ask questions from Monday 7th to Friday 19th of October, 2019

Is there a compiled/combined list that shows all the various types of trace/log files, where they are located (i.e. the mechanisms in order to get them either by a push or pull method? Either by on demand pull or scheduled push?)

Hi, Chris, I'll write up an answer for you and post it in the discussion thread (which is not this page). This page is an announcement and not the discussion thread itself. In the meantime, please repost your question in the discussion thread here: Maren
