24. System Monitoring and Logging > Call Detail Records

Call Detail Records

The CDR system in Asterisk is used to log the history of calls in the system. In some deployments, these records are used for billing purposes. In others, call records are used for analyzing call volumes over time. They can also be used as a debugging tool by Asterisk administrators.

CDR Contents

A CDR has a number of fields that are included by default. Table 24-2 lists them.
