Call Details Reporting Test

Call Detail Recording (CDR) enables you to track usage of the following:

  • Peer-to-peer instant messaging sessions,
  • Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone calls, and
  • Conferencing calls.

This usage data includes information about who called whom, when they called, and how long they talked.

This test enables you to capture the failed messages during Call Details Recording and when exactly the failures occurred – is it during message validation? or in the MSMQ queue? Or when written to the database?

Target of the test : A Microsoft Skype for Business server

Agent deploying the test : An internal/remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the target Microsoft Skype for Business server that is to be monitored.
