CDRv5 Server Overview

image for CDRV5 server overview
Implementation (From installed files)

The CDRv5 Server is implemented using two modules:
  • "TrillysSystemsCDRService.exe" which implements the "TrillysCdrService" as shown in the Windows Service applet below.
  • "SiteAdminVCL.exe" which implements the graphical user interface (GUI) to configure and monitor the CDRv5 server.

GUI Organization (See picture)

The GUI is organized in the following sections: Any parameter can also be reconfigured at any time.
  • Caption and Menu
  • Dashboard
  • Page Control
  • Work Area
  • Status Bar

Caption and Menu

In addition to the application name, the form caption will also provide your software license information. While the page organization takes the functional approach, the menu system provides a task-oriented access to various functions. 


Navigation using Tab Sheets

The page control allows you to access tab sheets quickly. The page organization is as follows:

System | Service Status Controls the CDRv5 service (install, uninstall, start stop).
Requires Administrative privilege.
Monitors connectivity and communications for data feeds and CDRv5 clients.
System | Errors Monitors error logs: in-memory, CDRv5 log file and Windows Event log pertaining to CDRv5. (Each error logs provides specific information that can be used for troubleshooting)
System | Software Update Provides software update features from a Web site (requires Internet access) or from a file folder.

  • The "Tasks" menu allows you to go directly to a tab sheet based on an activity.
  • If you pin the "SiteAdminVcl.exe” application to the taskbar, you can right-click on to access useful Windows system functions such as the "Service" applet or "Event Log Viewer".
  • The icon located on the task bar shows a transparent green bar indicating the current system load pertaining to the call record processing rate. This provides a glance of CDR record activity at all times.
  • Clicking on the icon below the "File” menu will restart the SiteAdminVcl.exe with Administrator privilege. This will permit the user to manage service configuration functions.
