I am trying to generate a load testing scenario against our Asterisk server.
Essentially, I am usisng 2 Asterisk boxes, and a softphone ( SJPhone )
Asterisk A - the one I want to perform load testing
Asterisk B - used to establish the calls between the softphone and Asterisk A.
I am using the call file mechanisms in Asterisk.
The tests I am performing include media processing.
I wrote a script to create n .call file and placed it in the Asterisk directory.
It works great until I reached 9. SJPhone reject to take any more call after 9.
So, I cannot generate traffic beyond 9 simutaneous calls.
Is there a better way for me to simulate the tests?
I guess I can write my test clients. But, I would like to explore other methods before going that route.
I have seen many posting about generate load tests, but, I haven’t seen how people are actually doing it.
Thanks in advance
