[Freeswitch-users] Manual generation of CDRs

Hi Neven,

Although more like a work around but practical and more secure from the 
point of view of really having your CDRs, you can also loop the call 
(looping SIP signalling) through FS back (eg using fs_path) and let 
FreeSWITCH generate your CDR out of that looping.
I prefer this approach since CDRs are real money and the risk of loosing 
them involving events processing over the network is more expensive than 
the resources used by FS to loop the call (although we rely within 
CGRateS quite heavily on ESL, but when it comes to CDRs we always prefer 
FreeSWITCH to handle them via internal modules, not external ones). You 
can even use a separate SIP profile listening on another IP than the 
public one where the initial call comes in.

Hope that helps!
