Configuring your SMDR output

The Avaya Network Alchemy uses the Avaya Call Log software to configure the SMDR data. As the application will be outputting the data to a file, the installation of the Avaya Call Log software needs to be performed on the same machine as TIM Plus. A copy of the Avaya Call Log application can be found on your Avaya Administration CD. Your system maintainer should be able to supply you with a copy of the software.


The Avaya Call Log software does not run as a Windows Service; therefore, you must ensure that the application is never stopped because you may lose SMDR data.

Configuring Avaya Call Log

Follow the steps below to configure the Avaya Call Log software:

  1. Start the Avaya Call Log application.
  2. From the File menu, select Select Unit.
  3. In the first field, enter the IP address of your Avaya Network Alchemy.
  4. In the second field, enter the password for your Avaya Network Alchemy and click the OK button.
  5. From the File menu, select Log Option
  6. From the Select Logging Information window, choose the Periodic option.
  7. Type C:\Program Files\Tri-Line\TIM Plus\spool\data.{sitecode} in the Log Filename field, replacing {sitecode} with the ID of the site you are logging. To obtain the ID of a site, hover the mouse pointer over it on the Directory page in TIM Plus and it will be displayed as a tooltip as shown below:

  8. Click on the OK button to apply the settings.
