IPO Call Logger - Customizable Call Logging Utility


Very important notice: If you are looking for up to date information and download links please go to this FAQ (as the FAQ allows me to edit my original post. This thread right here is just for initial release of IPOCL and for discussion, bug reports and feature requests - Thanks!

What is IPO Call Logger/IPOCL?

IPOCL is a Java based application (requiring a minimum of Java 1.6) which allows you to create call logs for one or several IPOs (SCN)

How does it work and what can I customize?

If SMDR is activated on the IPO it will send call information to a specific IP on a specifig port.
IPOCL will open a port and listen for incoming TCP messages. On receiving a message IPOCL will convert this message
(which looks something like this: 2013/11/07 12:44:52,00:01:20,1,200,O,100,100,,1,1000077,0,E200,Test2,E100,Test1,0,0,,,,,,,,,,,,,)
to something more convenient like this: 2013/11/07 12:44:52 - Call from 200(Test2) to 100(Test1) - Duration: 00:01:20

Things you can customize via the settings file:
- port that is used
- location of the log file
- output format (include or exclude more or less information, move it around, add things like "Call from" etc.

What do I have to do for IPOCL to work?

1. Activate SMDR (System - SMDR) and set the port and ip the messages are sent to
2. Open the desired port on any firewall between IPO and the PC/Server running IPOCL
3. Configure IPOCL via the settings file (created on startup - a basic configuration is of course included)
4. Start IPOCL in the (very simple..) GUI version for example on your laptop
OR start it in the non-GUI version if you want to run it on a server for several hours/days

Note: If you want a continuous log for several hours/days I recommend Windows Task Scheduler (make sure you check "run independent of logged-in users". Usage of a Trigger is optional as you can always start the task manually. It is very important to use the non-GUI version if run by a task scheduler because (as far as I know - correct me if I'm wrong) most of them don't allow Pop-Ups or GUIs to appear. As the GUI contains a "Start Logging" button you won't be able to actually start a log without the GUI. In the non-GUI version IPOCL will automatically start logging on startup. For server use I included a "StopIPOCL.jar" which will stop logging (as there is - again - no GUI with a "Stop Logging" button wink)

How can I report Bugs and/or suggest features for future releases?

Just answer to this thread right here - that's what I created it for wink
If you have any ideas on how to improve IPOCL feel free to let me know, I'm very happy about any feedback I get!
