Well new to asterisk. I’m trying to to test asterisk to its limits. Well i have some interesting results and many more questions.
I have two scenarios here:
when Config file is loaded with 10,000 extensions.
a. I register 2000 extensions using SIPp Client /SIPp Server on asterisk and then send the invites
b I flood asterisk with sip calls (Invite without media). asterisk breaks down* at an impressive number of calls.
when Config file is loaded with 20,000 extensions
a. I did the same number of registrations this time
b I flood asterisk with sip calls (invite without media). asterisk breaks down* at a few hundred calls.
- the calls either timeout/asterisk fails to respond to the incoming calls
My questions here:
- Why does asterisk run under as a single process? when compared to other sip proxy like OpenSer, which runs different processes using different service objects which inturn serve the function of sip sessions.
- Does really the number of users on the text database decrease the functionality of asterisk?
- Does the same occur when a mysql database is loaded?
