Previous Topic


Cisco Unified Serviceability service management includes working with feature and network services and servlets, which are associated with the Tomcat Java Webserver. Feature services allow you to use application features, while network services are required for your system to function.

If something is wrong with a service or servlet, an alarm is written to an alarm monitor. After viewing the alarm information, you can run a trace on the service. Be aware that services and servlets display different trace levels in the Trace Configuration window.

If you are upgrading Cisco Unified Presence, those services that you activated on the system prior to the upgrade automatically activate and start after the upgrade.



About Feature Services

In Cisco Unified Serviceability, you can activate, start, and stop feature services. Activation turns on and starts the service. After you activate a service in the Service Activation window, you do not need to start it in the Control Center-Feature Services window. If the service does not start for any reason, you must start it in the Control Center-Features Services window.

After the Cisco Unified Presence installation, the system does not automatically activate feature services, which are related services that are required if you want to use Cisco Unified Presence features. After you activate feature services, you can modify associated service parameters in Cisco Unified Presence Administration.

Cisco Unified Serviceability categorizes feature services into the following groups:



Database and Admin Services

Cisco AXL Web Service

The Cisco AXL Web Service allows you to modify database entries and execute stored procedures from client-based applications that use AXL.

Cisco Bulk Provisioning Service

You can activate the Cisco Bulk Provisioning Service only on the first node. If you use the Cisco Unified Presence Bulk Administration Tool (BAT) to administer users, you must activate this service.

About Network Services

Installed automatically, network services include services that the Cisco Unified Presence system requires to function, for example, database and platform services. Because these services are required for basic functionality, you cannot activate them in the Service Activation window. If necessary, for example, for troubleshooting purposes, you may need to stop and start (or restart) a network service in the Control Center-Network Services window.

After the Cisco Unified Presence installation, network services start automatically. In the Control Center-Network Services window, Cisco Unified Serviceability categorizes network services into the following groups:




Performance and Monitoring Network Services

Cisco Tomcat Stats Servlet

The Cisco Tomcat Stats Servlet allows you to monitor the Tomcat perfmon counters by using RTMT or the Command Line Interface. Do not stop this service unless you suspect that this service is using too many resources, such as CPU time. This service supports Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity Connection.


Cisco RIS Data Collector

The Real-time Information Server (RIS) maintains real-time information such as device registration status, performance counter statistics, critical alarms generated, and so on. The Cisco RIS Data Collector service provides an interface for applications, such as the Cisco Unified Presence Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT), SOAP applications, and so on, to retrieve the information that is stored in all RIS nodes in the cluster. The Cisco RIS Data Collector service provides an interface for applications, such as the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT), SOAP applications, and so on, to retrieve the information that is stored in on the RIS server. This service supports Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity Connection.
