mpg123 using 100% cpu


#1

Hi,

I have a pretty standard asterisk config with mpg123 powering the music on hold.

However, my * box keeps overheating when the weather is hot and I have just noticed why - mpg123 is permanently using 100% of my CPU.

Here is a listing from #top

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
12468 root 25 0 3872 2636 2472 R 99.9 0.3 1157:11 mpg123
31352 admin 16 0 12140 8944 1976 S 1.0 0.9 10:51.26 Xvnc
31454 admin 25 10 34728 17m 10m R 1.0 1.7 9:46.93 rhn-applet-gui
11377 root 16 0 2020 1012 784 R 0.3 0.1 0:00.97 top

Does anybody know why this is happening and what I can do to stop it?

Thanks,
Rick

This just happened to me (on the box that is having queue issues as per the other thread I just posted in, http://forums.digium.com/viewtopic.php?t=848). Did you ever find a cause or solution?
