Sometimes working with a large amount of phones (10,000+) it can take a whole day to export into a csv, and makes more sense to view and manipulate data in the live database. Caution should be taken when handling the live database, so if you are not a programmer, you may want to stick to the canned scripts below as an overly broad query could lock up your server!

I was recently tasked with running firmware updates on a large amount of phones, various models for over 100 device pools. Anything that can help organize and divide workload and cut down on unnecessary bulk jobs is a huge help!

UC Guerilla has a good blog on this here
Cisco’s documentation you can find here, but a tough read for a non-programmer

Count the number of devices per type, total:

run sql select count(Device.name) Device_count, typemodel.name Device_Type from Device inner join typemodel on device.tkmodel=typemodel.enum group by typemodel.name

Count the number of phones in each device pool, sorted by device pool name:

run sql select count(d.name), dp.name as DevicePool, tc.name as DeviceType from Device as d inner join DevicePool as dp on d.fkDevicePool=dp.pkid inner join typeClass as tc on tc.enum=d.tkClass group by dp.name, tc.name order by dp.name

Count the number of each type of phone per device pool, sorted by device pool name:

run sql select count(Device.name) Device_count, DevicePool.name Device_Pool, typemodel.name Device_Type from Device inner join DevicePool on Device.fkDevicePool=DevicePool.pkid inner join typemodel on device.tkmodel=typemodel.enum group by DevicePool.name,typemodel.name order by DevicePool.name
