Triple Combo Tool - Easier Debugs & Traces

I learned about this free tool in a CCVP class I took years ago and rarely run across folks that know about it.  While this won't be available to you on the CCIE Voice Lab or Written, I do find it useful in my day to day workplace.

Where Is The Triple Combo Tool Now?

If you are looking for the Triple Combo Tool and hope that an updated link is available here, well, you are out of luck.  I suggest using TranslatorX instead as it provides similar functionality and is being maintained. 

About The Triple Combo Tool

Murat Tiryakioglu has created an extremely useful tool for viewing and parsing IOS Gateway debugs as well as CUCM SDI/SDL traces.  As these debugs and traces can become very long and difficult to follow, this tool will organize the output and put things in a MUCH more useful format.

In his own words, "Triple Combo is a tool to aid people troubleshoot CallManager problems by providing a listed output of SCCP, MGCP, Q931 / H225, H245 messages found in CCM traces, CCAPI/VTSP, Q931 and MGCP debugs in IOS gateway traces and  versatile filtering capabilities."
