Description:We are running Asterisk SVN-branch-1.6.1-r251886 as our production server.

The traffic is not very much, max 20 simutaneous calls.

After every 2-3 weeks, we start getting socket error and calls are unable to be made and eventually asterisk stops.

When we check file descriptors being used by Asterisk at this time, it shows > 900, even if active channels are 0.

We think the issue is same as Issue # 0009235 that was solved for version 1.4

So, a similar patch may be needed for this version as well.


We are using CentOS.

I'm marking this as related to ASTERISK-15581 because this is likely a duplicate of that issue. If you could look through that issue and see if it sounds similar to what you're experiencing, it would be best to only track the issue in a single bug thread. Thanks!

This is a critical issue that in fact invalidates the whole line 1.6.X.
I hope somebody pays attention. I filed this bug many months ago with a different number. It seems that unless somebody pays up Digium does not have the resources to fix this. I have a Business Edition version but I need the features of 1.6.X like timers and Q.850.

falves11: This has absolutely nothing to do with paying money. In fact, you couldn't even get this issue prioritized higher by attempting to pay for it to get prioritized higher. That is not how development resources work at Digium. Issues are prioritized and assigned to developers on a monthly basis, which is what triggers our releases.

If you haven't noticed, the issue ASTERISK-15581 has now been assigned to a developer as the issue has made its way up the priority stack and the resources have become available for the issue to be moved forward. In fact, there is a now a patch available for testing.

With over 600 open issues at any given time, and approximately 10-20 new issues opened every day, we're doing the best with the time and resources that are available. Your constant meandering and ill-informed information is useless at best, and detrimental at worst.
