Do you want Linux to monitor calls made on an ISDN card in a Linux using
ISDN for Linux (I4L) or do you want to use some software on a Linux box to
monitor the router's usage of the line ?
If it's the former, then I4L's logging will take care of it for you. If it's
the latter, then I'd suggest joing the I4L mailing list and asking there.
AFAIR there was some mention of using I4L with some kind of special
connection just to monitor a line, but I can't swear to it.
