I have a new Asterisk 1.8.4 system with two IAX trunks and SIP phones attached. The system runs fine for a period of time and then starts to produce error messages like this.
[May 28 14:27:56] WARNING chan_iax2.c: Max retries exceeded to host 64.xx.xx.xx on IAX2/trunk_2-6001 (type = 6, subclass = 11, ts=3119938, seqno=155)
The errors increase and if Asterisk is not restarted in becomes unstable. In one case phones were unable to register and in another Asterisk crashed.
Based on this reported issue: issues.asterisk.org/print_bug_p … g_id=19285 and additional research I have changed the timing driver from res_timing_timerfd.so to res_timing_dahdi.so (there is a 4 port FXS card and a T1 card installed). So far the problem has not reoccured, but the next 24 hours will tell.
Has anyone else seen this problem and if so what steps were you able to take to resolve it?
