I want to see cdr data from csv file. I am using the following commands

cd /var/log/asterisk/cdr-cv
vi Master.csv

i get :-
Err773 : Symboli loop for Master.csv
"Master.csv"[New File]

How to resolve this issue?



cd /var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv


ls -l

then you should see Master.csv

then to view it in realtime

tail -f Master.csv


less Master.csv

to view it page by page


Although the messages clearly haven’t been copied accurately, I think he has a bogus symbolic link, which will be a user error, outside of Asterisk. Either that or the program that calls itself vi on his system is broken. Either way, I don’t think this is an Asterisk problem.


I am out of symbolic links error…now there is no file in /var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv.

What do i need to do in order to view CDR data in asterisk??


i am trying to view CDR data from /var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv but unable to view.On using vi Master.csv in editor,it displays “Master.csv”[New File].
Also FreePBX Report page doesn not diaplay any record.
How to view CDR data,is there any module that is to be loaded or any service that has to be enabled ??

Urgent help required.


It works out of the box if you use the supplied sample configuration and a software configuration equivalent to installing from modified sources.

please clarify .Which software do i need to install ?

Asterisk. E.g. a clean install of any of the three on's home page.
