When constructing a URL for the target object, a VoIP client tool reads the following attributes of the VoipPerformanceManager managing node object:
The tool uses these values to populate destination address, destination port, and login fields in the URL and to access the web server on the VoIP Performance Manager managing node. These values are user-configured, as explained in the VMware Smart Assurance VoIP Availability Manager Configuration Guide.
A VoIP client tool uses different methods to obtain this information, depending on the target object. Other than a target VoipPerformanceManager managing node object, central to these methods is the MonitoredBy relationship between the target object and the VoipPerformanceManager managing node object.
To populate certain fields in the URL, the tool reads the target object attributes. For example, if the target object is a CallManager object, the tool reads the object’s ExternalName attribute to learn the name of the call manager, as known in the VoIP Performance Manager, and not the cluster name to which it belongs. Then, the tool populates the appropriate fields in the URL with that value. Target objects and context filter criteria are described in the VMware Smart Assurance VoIP Availability Manager Configuration Guide.
