How can I find a log of calls message a specific extension in Asterisk?

Windows Ninja asked:

Question says it all. Trying to view a log of calls to/from an extension using Asterisk.

Thanks in advance.

My answer:


You can find the call detail record logs by inspecting the files /etc/asterisk/cdr.conf and /etc/asterisk/cdr_custom.conf (and any local files which they include) to determine where the log files are, or whether they’re enabled. You can then view the call detail records.

By default, the records will be at /var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv/Master.csv. The above files will contain hints of any changes made locally to the logging configuration.
