================================

pbx*CLI> core show application monitor

-= Info about application ‘Monitor’ =-

[Synopsis]
Monitor a channel.

[Description]
Used to start monitoring a channel. The channel’s input and output voice
packets are logged to files until the channel hangs up or monitoring is stopped
by the StopMonitor application.
By default, files are stored to “/var/spool/asterisk/monitor/”. Returns
‘-1’ if monitor files can’t be opened or if the channel is already monitored,
otherwise ‘0’.

[Syntax]
Monitor([file_format[:urlbase]][,fname_base[,options]])

[Arguments]
file_format
optional, if not set, defaults to ‘wav’
fname_base
if set, changes the filename used to the one specified.
options
m: when the recording ends mix the two leg files into one and delete
the two leg files. If the variable ${MONITOR_EXEC} is set, the application
referenced in it will be executed instead of soxmix/sox and the raw leg
files will NOT be deleted automatically. soxmix/sox or ${MONITOR_EXEC}
is handed 3 arguments, the two leg files and a target mixed file name
which is the same as the leg file names only without the in/out designator.
If ${MONITOR_EXEC_ARGS} is set, the contents will be passed on as
additional arguments to ${MONITOR_EXEC}. Both ${MONITOR_EXEC} and the
Mix flag can be set from the administrator interface.

b: Don’t begin recording unless a call is bridged to another channel.

i: Skip recording of input stream (disables ‘m’ option).

o: Skip recording of output stream (disables ‘m’ option).
