Thanks every body

The list of options is endless. I would start with getting a base line and then creating a alerts for anything “out of bounds”. Some of the things we check.

  • Is Kamailio and Asterisk alive.
  • Is Kamailio and Asterisk responding to SIP OPTIONS.
  • Ram usage for Asterisk and Kamailio.
  • Ram usage over all on the box.
  • Process count for Asterisk and Kamailio.
  • Process count over all per box.
  • Over all disk space usage on the box.
  • SNMP checks on each drive for the health.
  • SNMP checks for health of the array (if any)
  • Load average on the box
  • CPU usage for Asterisk and Kamailio.
  • How many users are ssh’d into the box.
  • Ping test to multiple core IP’s (, etc.)
  • Raid array health check (Manufactures like Dell have commands you can run to check.
  • How many concurrent calls are there.
  • How many channels are in use (different than calls).
  • How many PJSIP channels are in use (vs chan SIP, Dahdi etc.)
  • How many threads are running for Asterisk and Kamailio.
  • How many handsets are registered with Kamailio
  • Is the box listening for ssh sessions.
  • Is the process managing the fw on the box running.
  • If using mysql, apache etc to the same as above.
  • NF Contrack count
  • Bandwidth usage on each Ethernet interface.
  • Check each Ethernet interface for errors.
  • Netstat for each process (Asterisk, Kamailio etc.)
