Description:Error counters, for bipolar violations, CRC4 errors, etc. are fully implemented in the tor2 driver. They are fully listed in the /proc/zaptel/xxx files, and in a show command in zaptel. zttool lists bipolar violations, but misses out the other counters. The E1/T1 drivers other that tor2 do not implement the counters at all. This is a serious omission, making diagnosis of quirky problems more difficult than it needs to be.

error counts like crc4, ebit and fas are implemented in tor2 but they are missing in new E1/T1 drivers like wct4xxp.

I'm going to have to close this one out, as we only allow feature requests to stay open on the bugtracker for a limited period of time.  We'd need a proposed patch to reopen.

This isn't a feature request. Its a bug report. The error counts are supported for some cards, and missing for others. Wuthout them, support is a big PITA. Considering this a feature request is like saying that fixing core dumps is a feature request.

No, a more apt comparison would be comparing this request to a valgrind enhancement or extra debugging flags.  There is no manifestation of an actual bug, here, only the issue that you would like additional debugging information when working on a hardware issue.

Please take this up with Digium directly.  This is a support issue to be resolved with them, under your support contract.
