I need to be able to tell which party hung up a call in Asterisk - is there something in the logs that will tell me that, or is there something I can add to the dialplan?  I also need to be able to tell the difference between a call that was hung up normally and a call that was ended as a result of network issues; I assume that will be something I need to add dialplan stuff for...Im using Elastix as the PBX, and ideally I'd like to add this data into CDR data, so it's searchable and we can view it within the various call data pages.

Disconnect code/clause should be in the CDRs. So you can seperate the normal call clearing from abnormal disconnects (if Asterisk is aware of it of course).
 
Caller party/Called Party clearing are both considered normal disconnect. The only way to understand whic party hung up first is to look at the call traces. But you cannto leave the traces enabled all the time as it will affect the performance if you have large call volume.

What in the call trace will show who hung up?  I can set a separate server up to handle this, if I need.

You should be able to see in the call trace which endpoint sends the CANCEL request first, this is who hung up first.
