Asterisk Queue Call Detail Record Noise Print E-mail

With the advent of Asterisk version 1.4, users of the asterisk-stat CDR web front end likely noticed a marked increase in the number of CDRs, especially if they also made use of queues. Knowing which agents' phones rang for each call in the queue (assuming the ringall strategy is used) can be nice but mostly I really only want to know who, if anyone, picked up. So here is a quick edit to the call-log.php file to ignore the unwanted records. Change the line:
$FG_TABLE_CLAUSE .= " 1 = 1";
$FG_TABLE_CLAUSE .= " AND NOT ((dst = 's') AND (disposition = 'NO ANSWER'))";

Grandstream Phone Configuration Generator Print E-mail

Grandstream phones can be configured individually by assigning them an IP address and then browsing to their configuration web-pages. However, any sizable deployment will quickly outgrow that approach. Instead, system administrators will likely opt to have the phones download a tailored configuration based on the phones' MAC addresses. These configuration files can be generated using Grandstream's template and configuration tool. However, assuming that each phone is in some way unique, this approach still requires that the configuration tool be run once for each phone; still labor intensive. Thanks to a description of the configuration file's layout on the VoIP Info website, PBnJ Solutions was able to build a small Perl utility to generate compatible configuration files.
