Broken pipe problem

Hello all,

I have faced a problem in a certain time that my asterisk box gives an error–

“error while writing audio data. Broken pipe”

can any one tell me the available reasons for that. I want to know in which condition it can occure.

Thanx

zilani

Broken pipe error happens when two applications were
commuincating using a pipe and now one of it has terminated but the
other application doesn’t know that and writes to the pipe in the
hope that the application is reading from it.

thanx,

I think i got the reason. But it will better if you can tell me more in details.
i am waiting for ur kind response

zilani :smiley:

Can you explain in detail when you get this error.
This error is usually because of mpg123 used by asterisk in musiconhold
and also to playback streams.

hi,

Actually i am playing IVR in asterisk box and clients rapidly listen it. If two
clients listen at a time the same IVR then after a certain time my asterisk
hanged up and gives the specific error.

If you think that it is not enough to understand then i will explain more

please give if you have any idea to fix it.

Thanks

zilani

mention which asterisk version you are using.
also Post the message log created when the condition occurs.
