How to show asterisk calls in progress

While troubleshooting Asterisk phone system I figured that I needed a way to see how to show Asterisk calls in progress.

There is a command call \”watch\” that you can use on the Linux operating system that will show you the active number of calls. There are three watch commands that I am showing here:

Watch the number of active channels #watch \”asterisk -vvvvvrx \’show channels\’ | grep channels\”
Watch number of active calls
#watch \”asterisk -vvvvvrx \’show channels\’ | grep calls\”
watch number of active channels
#watch \”asterisk -vvvvvrx \’show channels verbose\’\”
