RESKit – DBAnalyze.exe

Amongst the RESKit tools one finds the Database Analyzer. Use it to check the health of your RTC Database.

It comes with switches and I have documented the ones I find most useful with examples below.

DBAnalyze.exe /report:diag

diag     Displays diagnostic information for the rtc
            Depending on the number of users, database
            size and the current load, creation of this
            report type may take 5-10 minutes.

            WARNING: Diagnostic mode should not be run
            frequently. Doing so may impact server

RTC Database Disk Usage
DBAnalyze.exe /report:disk

disk     : Displays the disk fragmentation analysis results for all local disks.

MCU Stats
DBAnalyze.exe /report:mcus

 mcus     : Displays information about all MCUs registered with the database.

User Reports
DBAnalyze.exe /report:user /

 user           : SIP user to query for. This switch is used by the
                  “user” and “conf” report types. The value is the SIP
                  URI of the user without the “SIP:” prefix.


About Paul B

My name is Paul Bloem and I am employed at Lexel Systems in New Zealand as a Principal Consultant for Unified Communications. I have been working on enterprise voice solutions for over 20 years. My first 10 years were spent working for a Telco in South Africa (Telcom SA). This is where all the groundwork happened as I was exposed to just about every aspect of telecommunication you could imagine. I develop an interest in PBX technologies and eventually became the go-to guy. Next, I had a 10 year run at Siemens South Africa, most of my time there was as a Technical Trainer. During this time VoIP hit the world stage, I had the privilege of introducing VoIP both as H.323 and later SIP across the Siemens HiPath 4000 solution stack. In 2008 I immigrated to New Zealand with my newly attained MCSE, I was ready to go where no PBX Techie had gone before. I was employed to explore OCS 2007 and that was pretty much the beginning of the end for me. I have been working on OCS and Lync ever since. My current role focuses exclusively on Lync and associated technologies.. That includes pre-sales, consulting, architecture and design, training and support. I even get to play in the development space from time to time - focus on play ;-) I was nominated as a Microsoft VTSP for Lync early in 2013 and also awarded Microsoft's MVP award for Lync in 2014.
