(I'm just a 1.2 Luddite, so my input may be a bit dated.)

Where are you seeing 'calls processed?'

There is a 'channels created' counter. That's the bit after the '.' in 

Resetting this is probably a bad idea, but if you're really determined you 
could write a small Asterisk application (app_reset_call_counter()?) that 
would lock the appropriate data structure, reset it, and unlock the data 

Probably a better idea would be for you to maintain a counter in a global 
variable. Then you are free to do with it as you please without having to 
consider the implications of changing something internal to Asterisk.

If you stored your counter in a database, it could persist beyond that 
instance of Asterisk in case of an unlikely crash. If you go this route, 2 
AGIs (increment-call-counter and reset-call-counter) would help keep your 
dialplan 'clean.'
