What are the primary components of UC Monitor?
There are two primary components of UC Monitor:
· Collector: a device that collects performance data from the UC environment and forwards it to the Management Console for reporting/viewing. In a Cisco environment, when attached to a mirror port or SPAN port, the Collector monitors the switch to which a Cisco CallManager, or cluster of CallManagers, is connected. In an Avaya environment, the Collector receives RTCP packets from the endpoints/phones and gateways. In a medianet environment, the Collector receives metrics from medianet-enabled devices via Flexible NetFlow.
· Management Console: a device that collects data from the Collectors (Cisco/Avaya) and other devices (e.g., Microsoft OCS/Lync servers, Acme Packet or Sonus session border controllers) at regular intervals, and enables storage, analysis, and reporting on that data.
