What is the default buffer size?

How can I increse?

Following commands did not help

Hi Recep,

Give this a try;

To specify call detail record (CDR) storage time, use the dial-control-mib command, which has two sets of keyword and argument options. The max-size number option specifies the maximum size of the CDR event table. The valid range is from 0-500, and the default is 50. Setting the value to 0 disables the CDR feature.

The retain-timer number option specifies the length of time in minutes that entries will remain in the call history table. The valid range is from 0-2147483647 minutes, and the default is 15. Setting the value to 0 prevents any call history from being retained.

Call Activity Monitoring and Call History Logging

The Cisco Unified CME GUI provides call history table information so that a network administrator can monitor the call history information for unknown callers and use this information to disallow calling activities based on select calling patterns. The call history log should be configured to perform forensics and accounting and allow the administrator to track down fraudulent calling patterns. Configure the following commands to log call activity and call history:

dial-control-mib retain-timer 10080

dial-control-mib max-size 500

From this doc;

Thank you

If I want to log only external calls

Is it possible

Hi Recep,

First off you are most welcome :) I don't know of any way to specify that only external calls are logged. This is where the parsing of these records becomes more important.

You might want to look into Cisco Partner "Stonevoice" that has a nice application for doing up these reports/graphs etc;

Hope this helps!
