Monitoring Avaya SIP Phone Voice Streams

In order to monitor voice stream data for Avaya SIP Phones, the following settings will need to be made in the Avaya 46xxsettings.txt file. These settings will direct voice stream RTCP information to Prognosis.

SET RTCPMON <ip_address>
SET RTCPMONPORT "<port_number>"
SET RTCPMONPERIOD <n>
SET RTCPCONT {0|1}

Where:

SET RTCPMON <ip_address>
IP address of the Prognosis Monitoring server.

SET RTCPMONPORT <port_number>
Sets the port used to send RTCP information to the IP address of the Prognosis Monitoring server, as specified in the RTCPMON statement. It is recommended that the default setting of "5005" be used.

SET RTCPMONPERIOD <n>
Specifies the interval for sending out RTCP monitoring reports (5-30 seconds). In this case, the default setting of 5 seconds should be used.

SET RTCPCONT
Specifies if the sending of RTCP is enabled. 0 for 'No' or 1 for 'Yes'. This setting is also applicable for 1603 SIP phones.

Example:

SET RTCPMON 9.22.22.22
SET RTCPMONPORT "5005"
SET RTCPMONPERIOD 5
SET RTCPCONT 1
The SIP phones need to be setup to update from this file on reboot and then the phones rebooted once the 46xxsettings.txt file has been updated and saved.
