Asterisk Cmds - Monitor and Record


We are trying to use Monitor for recording telephone conversation but the voice recorded by in-channel is not of good quality. The out channel quality is good.

Record asterisk command does a good recording but why monitor asterisk command is not recording in-channel properly.

Related user report Sep 2010: I’ve already ran into major problems using the Monitor() app due to disk io. The disk writing is done in the same thread as audio bridging, so if you have high disk io contention (which I had), audio bridging suffers while you’re recording a call. MixMonitor spawns a new thread and avoids this problem. Ideally Monitor() should also be rewritten to spawn a new thread.
