Asterisk CLI Output

Is there a location where I can parse the Asterisk CLI Verbose Information?

For example… to log into asterisk CLI you have to call asterisk -rvvv
All the information displayed at asterisk CLI is there a file or palce where I can get those info?
I want to display the information real time on a web page instead of going to bash

This is set in logger.conf, The default directories for the logs is /var/log/asterisk.

They are not intended for machine parsing.

Thanks!! Much appreciate it.

this can be done in

This can be done with a few line a codes , I wont wrote the code having issues with my laptop key boad

read the content of /var/log/asterisk/full and print it on you browser

using php , you can use any of this functions file(), fopen, shell_exec() or any other

Thanks! I’m using nodejs which im going to read the file but I dont see "/var/log/asterisk/full"
I only see the following under /var/log/asterisk/ …
cdr-csv , cdr-custom, cel-custom, messages, queue_log

I’m reading /var/log/asterisk/messages file and im only getting error notifications?
