Description:I noticed this on as well but didn't have the time to look at it then and reverted back to

When Monitor() is called with a single argument such as Monitor(wav), the app exits with -1 and the dial plan terminates.  This occurs with any set of arguments that have been working in production and that have been tested to work properly in

When Monitor() is called with no options, it returns with the proper message "Monitor requires an argument".


I diffed out the res_monitor.c files from beta2 and beta4 and didn't really see any difference to speak of.  I included the diff in the uploaded files.

I added some debug code just to see where the problem is.  I can see that on line 528 in res_monitor.c ast_monitor_start is returning res=-1, but when I try to see what is happening in ast_monitor_start, I get no debug messages on the console even if I place a ast_debug(1,"ast_monitor_start debugging\n"); code right after "int res = 0" on line 208.  Since I'm not getting any responses to my "debug" code in that function, I'm at the end of my skills and am turning it over to the group.

It looks like the asterisk version got set 1.6.1-beta4 somehow, even though that's not an option in the submission form...

Is there any chance you could verify this is still an issue in If so, I'm going to set this as a blocker for final release. Thanks!

I just got around to compiling this morning and the behavior is the same.  Calls hangup the moment the Monitor() application is called.  I am reverting back to once again.

Attached console output from the attempt in the file.

it seams something wrong with optional api ?
asterisk uses stubs not real function ...

I just compiled and install and monitor is now working properly!!!

In the ChangeLog it looks like the optional_api was removed from a few files, including include/asterisk/monitor.h, to fix bug ASTERISK-14847... I'm guessing that's what did it.

Closing this issue as the reporter confirms things are working in and beyond. Thanks!
