Asterisk Server got shutdown

Hi Guys,

My asterisk server got shutdown automatically is there log through which I can get the reason of this failure…

There are various logs in /var/log/asterisk and you can use gdb to get back traces if it crashed rather than shut down.

What do you mean by "shutdown’? The physical server was shut down on its own? The virtual machine crashed? Or Asterisk process killed?

Asterisk logfile was provided by david551.
However, if the issue was related to the entire server, you should start with OS logs:


depending on the OS being used.

Actually that server goes shutdown suddenly once in a day anytime it gets shutdown automatically…If I check in message logs just found the logs of when it was started again forcefully.

syslog i could not find under /var/log

It is often configured to be called messages.
