Tips For Faster Support Response

Here are some tips for a faster response from the eZuce support team (TAC) please provide the following:

  • Detailed Problem Description
  • Snapshot Covering the Time of the Incident
  • Call Packet Capture (optional)

Detailed Problem Description

...

Note how the time that the incident occurred is important. This helps the support team track down the issue by narrowing the timeframe.

Call Traces And Snapshots

If an issue is reproducible then it is recommended to send the support team a snapshot and/or call trace to determine where the issue may lie. Please see the <How to take a snapshot>>> page to get more information on getting this information for the support team.

...

Snapshot Covering the Time of the Incident

The following steps will ensure a good quality snapshot for TAC to work with:

  • Turn up logging to 'Info' for services
  • Reproduce the problem
  • Take a snapshot as soon as possible

Instructions for using the Upload Server: eZuce File Server

Call Packet Capture

Packet captures can be done with Wireshark, done on certain Phones (Polycom) or could be done on the eZuce Uniteme Server itself (Network Packet Capture Services, or tcpdump).

How to Take a Snapshot

The Uniteme system includes a tool, sipx-snapshot whose purpose is to collect all the information that an expert needs to diagnose configuration and interoperability problems. When eZuce Support tells you they need "a snapshot" of your configuration, they mean the output of this tool (which is a compressed tar file).


The Admin Console web user interface includes the ability to generate a snapshot that you can download. To access the snapshot tool, login as 'superadmin' and navigate to Diagnostics -> Snapshot.

Image Added

If you have just reproduced the issue, the default of 10% of the log files should be sufficient. If you are unsure when the issue occurred you can grab up to a 99% snapshot.

The larger the percentage of log files is and the busier the system is (number of users + number of calls) the larger the snapshot will be.

Snapshot Tips

Turn Up Logging

Before taking a snapshot, ensure that logging for various components is turned up to at least 'Info'. We would normally recommend SIP Proxy (System -> SIP Proxy) at a minimum. If you are having trouble with external calling and your gateway is of type SIP Trunk, also turn up logging to 'INFO' for sipXbridge (Devices -> SIP Trunk SBCs).

Command Line Options

Some additional options (which are generally not needed except for special circumstances) are available through the command line interface. To see the options and description, execute:


sipx-snapshot --help


Uploading to the eZuce File server

If requested by the support team, you may upload your snapshots/traces to the eZuce SFTP File server. For more information please visit the eZuce SFTP server pageFile Server page.
