Help with MySQL Query

Hi,

I have a mysql database which collects phone Call Detail Records (CDR). The fields of the MySQL data / Table is somewhat as follows (i've cut down all whats not necessary):

Phone_Number
Channel_Number
Call_Duration

I need to write a query which would give me a output showing the Average Call Duration of each channel, but the average should be calculated only based on the last 10 calls per channel.

My current query looks as follows:

select Channel_Number, count(0) as cnt, avg(Call_Duration) as ACD from CDR_Table group by Channel_Number

Open in new window


But the above query would give the output based on ALL records available in the table. I just need to only get the average for the last 10 calls per channel.

How can this be achieved?

Thanks!

you need to first extract to have the 10 last calls per channel, this into a temp table...
for this, you need of course to have a field which indicates the date of the call, which I presume you have in the same table ...

anyhow, please check this article on how to retrieve the N "last" calls per "group = channel"
