Removing Asterisk Call Recordings

« Back

  • Too many old call recordings
  • Running out of disk space due to call recordings
1. Backup any recordings you wish to keep/archive.

2. Log in to your server via SSH as the root shell user.

3. Run the following command to remove files older than a certain number of days:
Always excercise caution when using the 'rm' command, understand what you are removing, proceed at your own risk!
Customize this command by entering your own information in the input fields.

Keep days of recordings from today

find /var/spool/asterisk/monitor/ -type f -mtime +15 -exec rm -f {} \;

Call recordings older than the defined number of days are now removed.

If you want to automate the file removal process (no archiving needed), you can add the following to a cronjob (removes files older than two weeks at 1:15 AM each day):

15 1 * * * find /var/spool/asterisk/monitor/ -type f -mtime +14 -exec rm -f {} \; >/dev/null 2>&1

Note: The above should all be on the same line on your cron file
