Data Collections Test

In large environments where multiple conference calls are made through Microsoft Skype for Business server, it is not possible for the administrators to monitor the quality of each conference call and figure out what exactly caused a joinee to drop out of the conference call – is it due to database connectivity issues or validation errors?. Administrators are required to figure out how many times the conference calls were dropped over a period of time so that issues can be sorted out before end users start complaining. The Data Collections test exactly serves this purpose! Using this test, administrators may figure out the number of dropped conference join and leave activities from the server and also the number of unfinished tasks in the server.
