Awesome info! Thanks.

My hope is to just get an idea of what’s going on. But I agree, I usually tend 
to go to the TAC for more detailed help.

I also second TranslatorX as my first stop.  Make sure to have CDR enabled on 
the cluster, and just dump all of the compressed logs into it, pop open the 
Call List, find your call, double click it to see some good high level details 
(disconnect cause, duration, codecs, dtmf, ip addresses, device names) about 
the call, then generate a filter if you need to see the ladder diagram.  I 
don't use it for more complex log analysis, for that I sail over to Ryan's 
island and ask to use his Windows ME box and fire up Notepad++.

The find in files feature is amazing, but you will need to un-compress the logs 
first (RTMT can do this for you). The highlighting is helpful, and if you know 
regex, you're golden.  PS Some folks in TAC have syntax highlighting for CM 
traces in Notepad++, but so far they have not been willing to share it with me.

Which brings me to my final point.  Reading CM traces is not an easy effort, 
and you should give yourself a time limit, then just open a TAC case (or send 
it to Daniel Pagan; the human parser).  The Troubleshooting IP Telephony book 
is pretty good, and there's a few nuggets on the mailing list, but really, if 
you're not working in TAC, or a TAC like job function, you're swimming up 
stream.  You might have better luck performing controlled experiments, swapping 
components in and out to isolate the root cause.

With that said, you'll never get better at log parsing, if you're not log 
parsing.  So, if you're sick and twisted like Ryan and Daniel able to devote 
some time to log parsing, go for it.

For the money (free) and usability; yeah, I’d go with Paul’s TranslatorX. 
Especially if your troubleshooting call behaviors because of its ability to 
organize by session ID and parse out OPTIONS messages.

- Geany text editor does a good job because of its ability to highlight similar 
entities (Linux, not sure if there is a Windows port).

- Notepad++ if I’m on an island and that’s all I have.

Really though, anything that can parse the
character will work in a pinch but you’ll have to deal with the default 
chronologically logged readout. Whereas something like TranslatorX has more 
purposeful filters that allow you to follow the call’s message stack a little 
easier.

I need to do some log analysis to see why a certain group of fax machines are

take a look.

Is it translator X still?
