Description:In trying to hook up a G3R switch to the asterisk box, I've discovered that some of the timer (T200, T306, etc.) settings are different by default.  Right now those timers are hard-coded in the header files, but should be configurable on a span-by-span basis.


I may be able to put this in if there is enough interest...  Still trying to figure out why I can't connect to our G3R.

This would be very nice to have.  I'd like to hear from Mark on how he would like this implemented but I suspect we would want to add 2 new functions to libpri:

and a place to store all the timers in struct pri (some of them already have a place)

and in the public header file a bunch of #defines mapping specific timers to integers so we can call pri_set_timer(PRI_TIMER_T200, value);

and then add some #defines for default timer values.

Oh one last thing, last I looked we still have 3-5 timers that haven't been implemented yet.  Good to at least have a place for these for when they get implemented

This seemed like something fun so I threw together some code in libpri to allow this.  A bit more work to do but it should be done shortly

I'm not terribly familiar with the code.  I suspect that you wouldn't want to change the timers during runtime, so I would have added it as an option to pri_new, but that would definitely make that the header to kill all headers.  At some point I want to investigate how hard it would be to put some hooks into zaptel because you shouldn't have to bring the entire PBX down to add a T1 port.  I want to be able to do some experimentation hooking new devices in, but I still have lab users that are running applications on the switch that I can't afford to be down.

Are we ready to close out this bug since the timers are now configurable?
