SolarWinds VNQM Features
Monitor VoIP Call Performance VNQM monitors the performance of VoIP calls by analyzing call detail records (CDRs) generated by Cisco and Avaya communication managers.
Cisco SIP and CUBE Trunk Monitoring
VNQM is built to provide valuable Cisco SIP trunk and CUBE SIP trunk metrics, including up/ down status and audio and video call activity. In addition, SIP trunk and CUBE SIP trunk call activity and availability is displayed in the PerfStack™ dashboard. This can help admins identify the root cause of Cisco SIP and CUBE call failures by correlating SIP trunk availability and call activity, call performance metrics, and corresponding network performance metrics, including CPU and memory utilization.
Troubleshoot VoIP Call Performance
VNQM enables advanced VoIP troubleshooting by correlating individual call performance with corresponding network performance metrics.
Search and Filter Call Detail Records
VNQM provides the ability to search, filter, and display call detail records (CDRs) to aid in troubleshooting
VoIP Gateway and PRI Trunk Monitoring
VNQM provides VoIP gateway and performance details, including PRI trunk and channel utilization, distribution of VoIP and data, and a list of the top 10 quality issues through a designated gateway, so you can see exactly how your VoIP capacity is being used and identify potential issues before they affect users.
Call Signaling Chart View
VNQM can provide a pictorial representation of the packets exchanged from the call initiation, during progress, and end of call, and displays the requests that took place from call start to call end.
Automatic IP SLA Setup
VNQM allows you to set up IP SLA operations on your edge routers and switches with a wizard-like interface. You won’t need any complicated CLI commands to get started; typically, just a few clicks of your mouse and you’re off. It also provides IP SLA Test and verification of support for Cisco CUCM 12.x and Avaya® Aura 8.x.
VoIP and WAN Capacity Planning
VNQM generates synthetic VoIP traffic using Cisco IP SLA technology to help facilitate capacity planning and measure voice quality in advance of new VoIP deployments.
IP SLA Extended support As of version 2020.2, VNQM now supports IP SLA operations for Cisco Nexus® data center switching gear. VNQM will now discover and monitor IP SLA operations preprovisioned on Cisco Nexus 3K, 7K, and 9K switches.
