Description:I've got very often the Problem, that one of my Asterisk Zap Spans needs to be resetted, but there are a lot of other spans full with calls !

What I'd loved to had would be:
"zap reset span <span>" (without crashing the asterisk)

nice would also be:

"zap show channel usage span <span>"

which tells me when my PRI's are full, so i can check wether my amount of PRI ports is well balanced.

I'm much more concerned with why you would ever have to reset a particular span.  What is the situation that causes this?

Well you can imagine that sometimes the asterisk gets a bit flaky on  a particular span, or it may occur that the other end (where * is connected to) gets flaky.

It's really awfull to stop the whole asterisk for reinitializing the spans !

(On the other end we got a Siemens EWSD System from our E1 Provider .. )

Even better would be to be able to restart span and reload config from zaptel.conf without restarting whole asterisk. If I have 8E1s connected to two cards
and i'm adding removing E1s from different oprators I'd love to be able to change config only on single particular e1 without killing other calls on other E1s/cards.

It would be nice to have reload on zaptel but even if we get it working, you will NOT be able to add, remove, or change signalling on channels.

What makes Asterisk believe the channels are still in use?  If you use a "zap show channel <foo>" on the channel in marked in use, what do you see?

I'm not going to immediately close this, but rather give a nudge for more information to continue.
