There are no sip show channels on AMI. Also, the output that you sent is
not a AMI output. Are u using AMI ou running commands on console?

Running commands on console and parsing the output is the worst way to
obtain data, first because it is not easily parseable.

Second, it doesn't show you all data.

Third, you can have these truncate problems, because that's not intention
of CLI.

Using proper AMI Actions you will probably achieve your goals

I'm trying to get a list of the channels currently in use on an Asterisk
server ( if it matters) over AMI.

I send the command "sip show channels", and I get back a response along the
lines of (* used to protect the innocent...):

Peer             User/ANR         Call ID          Format           Hold
 Last Message    Expiry     Peer
*8.22.*0.34    02035644444      0221e874158bb62  0x4 (ulaw)       No
 Tx: ACK                    SIPtrunkNu
*.1*.19.70     (None)           2021549013484-1  0x0 (nothing)    No
 Rx: OPTIONS                <guest>
*.34.*.208     200101           712173267 at 192.1  0x4 (ulaw)       No
 Rx: ACK                    200101
*.1*.19.70     (None)           149831567021051  0x0 (nothing)    No
 Rx: REGISTER               <guest>

So, firstly, the "Call ID" column is clearly truncated, because it should
show more than is indicated above,
but more importantly for me, the "Peer" column is truncated, and what
should show as "SIPtrunkNumber8"
is only shown as "SIPtrunkNu".

How can I get the full column widths of these items shown in the output?

Note that it is not a solution just to say "don't call it
'SIPtrunkNumber8'; call it 'SIPtrunk8' instead", because
this name has also been modified slightly to conceal the real name of the
trunk, which is actually longer
than "SIPtrunkNo8", but still with the most important information at the

What I'm looking for is how to get the *full* details of all the channels

I have checked, and there is no "verbose" option to the "sip show channels"



Ramdisk is not an installation procedure.
