IP PBX to make voice tests

I need to create a very simple IP PBX capable of receiving calls, immediately terminating them, and tracking the caller’s number. I’m not expert of Asterix, is what I need simple to configure?

How are the calls going to arrive at Asterisk - do you have some SIP provider
who is sending you the calls?

immediately terminating them,

Please define “terminate”. Should they be answered, or not? If not, what
signal should the caller receive (eg: number busy, number not in service,
etc.)?

and tracking the caller’s number.

I assume this just means “keeping a list of the calling numbers”.

Yes, so long as you know what you’re doing.

Nothing is simple if you don’t know how to do it.

I don’t mean that as an unhelpful or rude answer, but without know how much
you do know about Asterisk, it’s hard to say whether you know enough to find
this a simple thing to do.

The very fact that you’re asking the question makes me suspect that you don’t
know how to do it, therefore it is not simple for you.

Also, please elaborate on the subject line you chose “IP PBX to make voice
tests”, because if “terminate” means that calls are not answered, I don’t see
where “voice tests” come into things.

If terminating means rejecting, note that, for VoIP, some providers will surcharge users who take large numbers of unanswered or short calls, or even terminate their contract. For analogue, note that it is not possible to reject a call without first answering it.
