Transfer Files

Log files may be:

  • Single “Plain Vanilla” Asterisk log files (one Master.csv and one queue_log, no rotation)
  • Split – Rotated log files (multiple rotated Master.csv and queue_log files)

Transfer copies and prepares the log files from project’s Asterisk PBX to the local computer. Parser can then process the log files to generate reports.

SFTP parameters for your project’s Asterisk PBX are defined on the Transfer area of Project Settings.

Import files

Import command lets you add log files to your Asterisk project from the local disk on your PC.

This can be useful if you have some old log files laying around, and the Asterisk PBX is no longer “alive”, but you would like to generate reports from those log files.

SAM Reports does not require “live Asterisk PBX”, this command overrides that.

Import asks you to choose a directory, and then copies  and prepares the  log files for the Parser to process.

Process Log Files

This command call the “SAM Reports 2 Parser” that generates data from the log files and adds it to the current project’s database.

Process Log Files From Beginning

This command is the same as previous, only it will empty the current project’s database, prior to processing the data.

Show Last Parse Results

Shows the parsing progress from the last time.
