This feels like all of a sudden all your peers are hammering your Asterisk system with a request to re-REGISTER all at the same time. Is there any ability for you to spread out that registration?

I can't really tell anything from the information you've uploaded other than you have 308 SIP peers cached in memory and that all of a sudden your number of registrations spikes.

Without additional information I'm not sure what to suggest here. In fact this likely isn't really a bug, but rather an implementation issue. You may want to take this issue to the asterisk-users mailing list, or find a consultant on asterisk-biz.

Thanks for all info lmadsen,
Attached a file "peers cfg" with example of peers currently configurated in Asterisk. if not what you requested, please ask again.

Important: SIPs clients are eMTAs (VOIP ports in Cablemodems)
When the problems appears,  I notice that the Peers that have many channels open sip "Init: options" can not ping them. The sip channels constantly open and close (the Call ID is constantly changing) but never cease to appear, generating Asterisk down.

I have to disable qualify in all sip peers. I've lost peer monitors, but asterisk is estable.
Thanks for all.
