## 1. Overview

The Statistics module is a wrapper over the internal statistics manager, allowing the script writer to dynamically define and use of statistic variables.

By bringing the statistics support into the script, it takes advantage of the script flexibility in defining logics, making possible implementation of any kind of statistic scenario.

## 2. Dependencies

### 2.1. Kamailio Modules

The following modules must be loaded before this module:

• No dependencies on other Kamailio modules.

### 2.2. External Libraries or Applications

The following libraries or applications must be installed before running Kamailio with this module loaded:

• None.

## 3. Parameters

### 3.1. `variable` (string)

Name of a new statistic variable. The name may be followed by additional flag which describe the variable behavior:

• no_reset : variable cannot be reset.

Example 1.1. variable example

```modparam("statistics", "variable", "register_counter")
modparam("statistics", "variable", "active_calls/no_reset")```

## 4. Functions

### 4.1. `update_stat(variable,value)`

Updates the value of the statistic variable with the new value.

Meaning of the parameters is as follows:

• variable - variable to be updated (it can be a string or a pseudovariable);

• value - value to update with; it may be also negative (it can be a string or pseudovariable).

This function can be used from ANY_ROUTE.

Example 1.2. `update_stat` usage

```...
update_stat("register_counter", "+1");
...
\$var(a_calls) = "active_calls";
update_stat("\$var(a_calls)", "-1");
...```

### 4.2. `reset_stat(variable)`

Resets to zero the value of the statistic variable.

Meaning of the parameters is as follows:

• variable - variable to be reset (it can be a string or a pseudovariable).

This function can be used from REQUEST_ROUTE, BRANCH_ROUTE, FAILURE_ROUTE and ONREPLY_ROUTE.

Example 1.3. `reset_stat` usage

```...
reset_stat("register_counter");
...
\$var(reg_counter) = "register_counter";
update_stat("\$var(reg_counter)");
...```
