    I am looking at extracting large amounts of data (e.g. All Users and their devices) from the CUCM Database at fixed intervals (e.g. Once Per Week).
     
    I am aware of a limitation to the size of the payload on AXL responses therefore rather than using AXL Requests to extract this data in blocks, it would be ideal if I could extract the data in one of the following mechanisms or similar.

           
    1. Get a backup of the underlying CUCM Database that will allow us to query the data offline.

    2. Get an automated dump of the requested Data.       

    3. Worst case – Query the Database directly through a CLI rather than SQL queries via AXL request.
     
    4. Alternative recommended approach by Cisco
     
     
     
    I am open to best practise suggestions that will allow me to query CUCM for the Data and limit the impact this will have on the CUCM node(s).
