Sending data to QueueMetrics

If you are not seeing any data in QueueMetrics, usually the main reason is that QueueMetrics is not receiving any data. If QueueMetrics is not receiving any data, it’s highly probable that Uniloader is not working correctly.

Uniloader is a service that needs to be installed on the PBX machine. This service continuously scans the queue_log file, where Asterisk writes information about what’s happening on the various queues in your call center.

QueueMetrics needs that information to monitor your call center, that is why the Uniloader service continuously checks the queue_log file for new information, and sends it to the QueueMetrics Database.

Here you can find all the troubleshooting tutorials.
