Need some additional information such as system you are working with, 7100 is what I am assuming.
What is the "Max Inbound Calls" set to?
What is the "Ring Group Type" set to: "Linear Hunt Group", "All Ring" or "UCD"?
Are you using any "Call Detail" application such as RSI Shadow CMS to process the SMDR data?
Yes, Netvanta 7100 connected with the AdTran Netvanta UC 420 Platform Server. (Netvanta ECS.)
The syslog data gives me exactly what I want: call_identifier (for piecing together the sequence of a call), start_time, ring_time, hold_time, total_call_minutes, call_type, calling_party_name, calling_party_number, answering_number, call_finish_indicator, dialed_number, call_status
Those are the fields I save from the syslog into an SQL database where I can run queries to get the information I need. We had tried RSI Shadow CMS but they weren't able to get the ring groups split up to tell who was actually picking up the phone in a ring group; the rest I was able to get from syslog into an SQL server and with some Perl I could accomplish the same thing. (We aren't concerned with costs of calls or billing codes or any of that type information - just who's picking up the phone and where are they sending the call.)
Let me see...the ring group is set to "All Ring".
No "Call Detail" application; I just have the syslogs sent to a syslog collector as above.
"Max Inbound Calls"...is that in the UC ECS Server or the 7100? (Although, and I don't know if this matters for this field or not, has the same behavior regardless of the current load on the system.) I'll try to figure this out; I've been working with just the syslogs and rudimentary user assignments for a while now so I'll have to review to get this.
Oh -> syslog to external syslog collector using SQL database, and then Perl to get the output I need.
Here's an example of the call logs in the UC ECS Server itself. I was told that complete call logs on the ECS are stored here: C:\Program Files (x86)\ADTRAN\NetVanta UC Server\SIPPBX\ipdr
So I looked at the log files in that location, but the same problem exists. (I've changed the IP addresses and phone numbers/extensions consistently, for privacy reasons.)
You can see where the "originalDestinationId" is that ring group, 3333. There are also "destinationId" entries for the two members of the ring group, 1111 and 2222, but subsequent entries in this log file only show the ring group extension handling the call. (See the "go-3333" entry where the call was transferred.)
So the ECS system isn't logging what the individual ring group members are doing.
I also tried looking at log files on the ECS at this location but with the same (lack of) results. C:\Program Files (x86)\ADTRAN\NetVanta UC Server\SIPPBX\logs\CALLROUTER\
It's baffling to me that the system doesn't record actions that members of a ring group take, especially when Syslog entries provide such detailed information otherwise.
This sums it up perfectly, from Syslog. (Main number changed to 9999, receptionist ring group changed to 3333, end user [not a member of the receptionist ring group] changed to 5555, calling number changed to 9999999999, for privacy reasons].)
Going by the call identifier, we see the external call come in to the main line. It's grabbed by the ring group, someone on the ring group answers and transfers the call to an end user, and we see the end user's voice mail pick up. So I've got absolutely everything I need from Syslog EXCEPT what the ring group members are doing!
