Description:Since I introduced a 30 min CRON job to issue a reload * started to show rather weird behaviour: Sometimes it won't exit on "stop now", or sometimes it WILL even exit if I issue a "reload" from within the CLI console. After 3-4 days I end up with 12% CPU whereas 2-3% is normal.


I suggest that, if you want to try this, you schedule reloads for every 5 min or so to quicken things. This box (RH 7.2) is for SIP and IAX traffic only, runs MOH and ztdummy, there's no hardware like ISDN or Zap to be found in it. Sorry for not being able to be more precise, and I'll be curious if others can re-produce...

do you have any sip register lines in sip.conf?

also you say you use ztdummy.. can you cat /proc/interrupts and include that?

I think the problem is all the stuff piled up on irq 11.  Get an X100P for real clocking. and It might just go away.

Can you remove your sip register lines and see if the problem goes away?
