CallPilot Channel Monitor

If the server experiences trouble processing incoming calls, you can view the state of call channels in Channel Monitor.
From Channel Monitor, you can:

To display the Channel Monitor, select: Maintenance > Channel Monitor from the CallPilot Manager Menu bar.

The icon that appears for each channel indicates the channel status.

By default, the Channel Status is refreshed every five seconds. You can change the refresh rate if required. Increasing the refresh rate increases the load on the server.

Call channel states

The following states indicate the current activity or status of each call channel.
