Troubleshooting Scenario:

1. Quick look at CRA dashboard indicated increased number of calls with Latency depicted below

2. Closer examination of the calls with Latency indicated that they are all related to Right FAX server shown below:

3. Since no other UC endpoints indicated increased latency the network was pulled out as the source of the problem. Closer examination of the VMWare environment hosting the RightFax server revealed the source of the issue.
