Post Dial Delay - the time between the call starts (an INVITE) and there's a progress indication (a 183 or early media).

You can find the delay time set as a channel variable:

In Seconds:

  • progress_mediasec
  • progresssec

In milliseconds (1000 = 1 second):

  • progress_mediamsec if there was media
  • progressmsec if there was no media

In MicroSeconds (1000 = 1 millisecond)

  • progress_mediausec
  • progressusec

Only one will be set, the other will be 0. PDD in seconds = (progress_mediamsec + progressmsec) / 1000
