Monitor a channel.
Used to start monitoring a channel. The channel's input and output voice packets are logged to files until the channel hangs up or monitoring is stopped by the StopMonitor application.

file_format- optional, if not set, defaults to
fname_base- if set, changes the filename used to the one specified.

MONITOR_EXECis set, the application referenced in it will be executed instead of soxmix/sox and the raw leg files will NOT be deleted automatically. soxmix/sox or
MONITOR_EXECis handed 3 arguments, the two leg files and a target mixed file name which is the same as the leg file names only without the in/out designator.
MONITOR_EXEC_ARGSis set, the contents will be passed on as additional arguments to
MONITOR_EXECand the Mix flag can be set from the administrator interface.
