Bulk Trace Analysis

The Bulk Trace Analysis tool is a postprocessing tool that allows analyzing XML trace files on every PC locally. You must first download the trace files that you want to analyze using the Trace Collection tool. You can download the Bulk Trace Analysis tool from the Cisco CallManager Install Plugins window. This tool works similarly to the Trace Analysis web GUI on Cisco CallManager, but it has some extra features. These extra features allow the user of the Bulk Trace Analysis tool to analyze files more easily than with the Trace Analysis web GUI. This tool is ideal to analyze trace files received from external sources because you only need the trace files for the analysis and not access to the Cisco CallManager system where they were created.

Bulk Trace Analysis Features

The Bulk Trace Analysis tool supports the following features that are not provided within the Trace Analysis web GUI on Cisco CallManager:

  • It creates reports of information that can be analyzed for troubleshooting, using multiple trace files as the input source data.
  • It allows multiple views of a single report to compare and analyze multiple issues simultaneously and concentrate on essential fields.
  • It allows users to customize report formats, sort trace information by type, and filter information by special trace tags as well as date and time.
  • It allows saving and printing of reports for further analysis.
  • It works without using Cisco CallManager processing power because it runs locally on a PC.
  • You can use it to analyze large trace files (larger than 2 MB).

Using Bulk Trace Analysis

Figure 32-14 shows the analysis of an XML trace file using the Bulk Trace Analysis tool.
