Retrieving calls from files

By default, the system stores up to 10,000 call legs in memory. If the call is no longer in memory, it may be retrieved by using information from the uctdata log files. To search for calls that are no longer in memory, do the following:

1- Start tbx_cli_tools_remote
2- Select tbuctwriter
3- To know which files are available, as well as the start and end time of each file, use the following options:

  • 'p' to print all uctdata files on disk

To load a file into memory for viewing with the Web Portal:

  • Option 'o' followed by the data filename (uctdata*)

Use the Web Portal to search for calls using the appropriate filter criteria. The memory will not be overwritten until you restore normal process.

To restore normal process:

  • Option ‘c’ to clear memory
  • Option ‘l’ to have calls put in memory again

By default the file is located in the following path:
