Review Board 1.7.16

Documentation for the timing modules used in Asterisk

Review Request #164 - Created Feb. 17, 2009 and submitted

Mark Michelson
This provides documentation for the timing modules used in Asterisk beginning with Asterisk 1.6.1. The documentation provided here is dependent upon the work on review being placed into Asterisk.

This first upload is a rough draft, and I expect to hear quite a bit of feedback on how to improve it. I suspect that not everything that I've said is 100% accurate either, especially with regards to the timing tests described in the "What Asterisk Does with the Timing Interface" section.
How exactly does one test documentation?

I know zaptel is available on non-Linux.  DAHDI will probably be available soon, if not already.
  1. Well, zaptel isn't usable on 1.6.1, and this documentation can be amended once DAHDI is available on non-Linux systems. runs on a server provided by Digium, Inc. and uses bandwidth donated to the open source Asterisk community by API Digital Communications in Huntsville, AL USA.
