The Gateway System Integrity Manager (Gateway SIM) is a common component of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace products. Gateway SIM functions as the channel through which Cisco Unified MeetingPlace gateways communicate with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server. It improves the reliability and serviceability of all Cisco Unified MeetingPlace applications by detecting gateway outages and logging these errors to the Alarm Table. It also allows you to add and delete gateway units (computers that have Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing or other Cisco Unified MeetingPlace applications installed) from the Application Server.

The Gateway SIM is comprised of two modules:

  • Gateway SIM Agent-Resides in the MeetingPlace Gateways Configuration Utility on the Web Server. The Gateway SIM Agent sends scheduled updates to the Gateway SIM Manager.
  • Gateway SIM Manager-Resides on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server. If the Gateway SIM Manager does not receive updates when expected, it logs a major alarm to the Alarm Table.

The following table describes the fields in the Gateway SIM Agent.
