How do I list the current settings for Call Detail Recording (CDR)?

CDR information is produced from call traffic on a trunk route. If you have multiple trunk routes, each one will need CDR enabled. The prompt CDR will either be set to NO the default or YES for CDR to be active.

There are several areas where CDR is configured:

  1. The CDR_DATA block - A common datablock used to define parameters for the CDR data collection process.
  2. The Route Data Block - A section of the route data block defines call information collected. 
  3. The Configuration Record - Defines the type of record format, NEW or OLD and whether Calling Line ID is included. 
  4. The serial data interface. 
  5. Individual extensions if internal call logging is required.

Here are some examples of CDR configuration:
Please Note. These examples are used to illustrate the settings. You may require an alternative configuration.

1. The CDR Data Block 

Use LD 21 to print the current settings. Changes are made using LD 15.

REQ:  PRT
TYPE:  CDR
TYPE  CDR_DATA
CUST  0
TYPE  CDR_DATA
CUST  00
CDR  YES
IMPH  NO
OMPH  NO
AXID  YES
TRCR  YES
CDPR  YES
ECDR  YES
BDI  YES
OTCR  YES
PORT  02
CNI  DGTS
BCAP  YES
CHLN  4
FCAF  NO


2. The Route Data Block


Each Route Data Block (RDB) has a section defining CDR parameters.
Use LD 21 to print the current settings. Changes are made using LD 16.

LD 21
PT1000

REQ:  PRT
TYPE:  RDB
CUST  0
ROUT  100
ACOD
TYPE  RDB
CUST  00
DMOD
ROUT  1

The following is an extract of a RDB print showing the CDR settings.

CDR  YES
INC  YES
LAST  NO
TTA  YES
ABAN  YES
CDRB  NO
QREC  NO
OAL  YES
AIA  NO
OAN  NO
OPD  NO
NDP  EXC 0
CDRX  NO
CCO  NO
NATL  YES


3. The Configuration Record (CFN) 

Two prompts in the Configuration record also need to be set.
Use LD 22 to print the current settings. Changes are made using LD 17.

LD 22
REQ  PRT
TYPE  PARM
PARM
From the print check these settings

FCDR  NEW
CLID  YES

  • FCDR defines the OLD or NEW style output format. This setting defines the number of data fields available in the output.
  • CLID gives the option to exclude or include any Calling Line Identity information transmitted from the network provider. CLID is either NO (default) or YES. 

4. The Serial Data Port 

CDR recorders are normally connected to a serial data port. The device's operating settings are shown in the ADAN print. The TTY used is also defined in the CDR_DATA block as the PORT value.

Use LD 22 to print the current settings. Changes are made using LD 17.

LD 22
REQ  PRT
TYPE  ADAN

The following shows ADAN TTY 2 set up for CDR.

ADAN  TTY 2
TTY_TYPE  SDI
CAB  00
CARD  00
PORT  2
DES  CDR
BPS  9600
BITL  8
STOP  1
PARY  NONE
FLOW  NO
USER  CTY
CUST  00


5. Internal Call Detail Recording 

Use LD 20 to print the current settings. Changes are made using LD 10/11.
If Internal Call Detail Recording is required, each extension TN has to have a class of service setting of ICDA.
Extensions using this feature can be listed using LD 81, the feature print overlay. The response to the FEAT prompt is either ICDD or ICDA.

Only trained system administrators can make these changes:
