Services and Devices Monitored
The Tivoli Netcool/Proviso Cisco IP Telephony Technology Pack creates automatic, on-demand, historical, and
real-time reports showing performance and trend analysis for the following services and devices:
Voice Quality — Jitter, latency, packet drops, mean opinion score, per cluster, per location, per business
department, and even for each extension number.
CallManager System & Application — Server availability, performance, CPU load, memory, service
availability, disk usage, and registered devices.
PSTN Gateway Devices — Catalyst6500, Cisco AS5x00 series, Cisco 2600 & 3600 series, E1 & T1 Serial
Links, DS0 Channel availability and utilization, DSP availability and utilization, capacity planning, bandwidth,
errors. Also, total number of calls per gateway, total duration per gateway.
Gatekeeper Devices — Number of successful / unsuccessful requests (routing, location, admission),
registered endpoints, errors.

business department, per extension number, top10 clusters (or sites, offices, extensions, departments).
Number of outbound and inbound calls. Total accumulated hours of traffic per hour, day, week, month.
Call Completion — Percentage of outgoing and incoming successful/unsuccessful calls, what are the main
errors (phones, LAN, WAN, PSTN network, congestions, no resource available).
Call Distribution — On-net vs. off-net ratio (number of IP routed calls vs. calls routed toward PSTN),
number of internal (private extension to private extension) calls, local calls, long distance calls, international
calls. Capability to provide statistics on number of calls to mobile networks (supported in some countries
