Functions: watch

This handles when you have a single call or channel. Other commands will strip out the result if there is a single channel or call active because the output changes the noun to be singular instead of plural.

asterisk -rx "core show calls" | grep "active" | cut -d' ' -f1
/usr/sbin/asterisk -rx 'core show channels' | grep -m1 "call" | cut -d' ' -f1

Prints a log of phonecalls placed from/to an asterisk server, formated into an easily readable table.

You can use partial number/queue matches, or use .* to match everything.
