View transcoding from ssh session

We attempt to minimize transcoding (or eliminate it completely). A few PBXes seem a “bit more taxed” than others of similar workload. I am concerned that transcoding could be an issue.

How, on a PBX using PJSIP, FreePBX v15, and Asterisk 16, can I view if any transcoding is currently occurring? I thought there was a command that allowed viewing of transcoding occurring in realtime (ChanSIP days if I remember right).

core show channel PJSIP/xxxxxxxxx-xxx

Thanks for that info. Is there a command that will show all channels, without having to name each individually? They have 30+ calls at anytime and would like to “see all calls at command issuance” to understand if any are transcoding.

core show channels verbose

Did that on a call I was certain was transcoded (Sangoma Connect over LTE using g729 into PBX that is only G722). No info on transcoding.

When I issue the command “pjsip show channelstats” it says “No objects found”

Are there active channels?
