Loading Asterisk CDR into a database

In the interests of accurate accounting, Asterisk creates a Master.csv, logging all calls and a few things about them.

This page on wiki.asterisk.org has a good breakdown of what all the fields mean.

I put together this MySQL table so that the data can be processed for data-analysis, accounting, or whatever it is that the data is needed for.

The second-last field is not present on all installations, but it is on mine. The version I’m on is:
