  • Fixed several severe bugs with H.225/H.245 message processing. This may have caused a wide variety of problems for any trace that contained H.225/H.245 messages.
  • BETA: Added capability to read in IOS debugs that contain output from 'debug ccsip messages'. Please report issues. To use this feature, just save the debug output from IOS/CUBE to a text file and import it into TranslatorX. You should see the Call List feature work for these traces as well as the Filtering and Graphing features.

  • Call Graphs will now show Re-INVITE instead of INVITE for Re-INVITEs.

  • Numerous Bug Fixes

Version 8.6(1)

  • Support for CUCM 8.6 trace files
  • Numerous Bug Fixes

Version 8.5(1)

  • Support for CUCM 8.5 trace files
  • *NEW* Message Sequence Diagram generation. Filter as you wish then click "Generate Chart" to see a nice MSC of the message flow. Click on any message to see the detailed decoded version.
  • Support for H.245 messages
  • Support for H.225 ASN.1 output
  • Support for Correlating H.245 messages to the associated H.225 messages. If you filter by call reference for H.225, you will get the associated H.245 messages
  • Various bug fixes
  • Better SCCP to IP Address correlation. Doesn't require keepalives to be enabled. You should pretty much never see not found for an IP address anymore.
  • Call List support. There is a separate window that shows you a call list derived from CDR data printed in the CCM traces. CDR must be enabled for this to work.
  • If you double-click on a call in the call list, you will get the full CDR data dump for the call (todo: include CMR data) with many fields decoded for you
  • Generate Filter based on Call. From the call list you can click a call and select Generate Filter. This will automatically generate a filter for the two call legs of the call listed in the CDR for the timeframe listed in the CDR. Note that this works best in 8.0 and later which have call reference information listed in the CDR. For any record that does not have call ref data, right now I only filter for the timeframe of the call for the IP address of the device, so it may include more than just messages for that one call. I've got some more work to do in this area to do some heuristic analysis based on the data in the CDR to generate a better filter, but this is pretty good for now.
