MessageThanks Greg,

I am writing a Perl script for this.  If it doesn't work ok then I will contact Andy.

  My partner (Andy Fullford) wrote our code that does this.

  We turned on SER accounting, deliver via SYSLOG, and have a script that
  scrapes all of that up and creates accounting records.

  In addition, we apply the syslog accounting output from our
  gateway routers to verify the INVITE/BYE sequences. Finally,
  we populate a database with the results.  We were going to
  use radius, but it didn't quite work right for us.  I think what we have
  cobbled together works really well.  We don't have any 'hanging' calls
  anymore....and even if we did we would catch them with the gateway

  We did not think the SER user base would be interested.  We use a postgres database and
  this doesn't seem to be mainstream.  However, if there is interest for this
  sort of thing perhaps we could donate it?

  Anyway, you could respond to sip at august.net and ask Andy if he can
  hack you out a piece of it to do what you want.

    Has anybody developed some sort of crude accounting script for SER that would match all BYEs with their respective INVITEs in the syslog file and say how many seconds each call lasted?
