Realtime / ARA without the need for 'switch' statements?


#1

When will it be possible to have asterisk read the complete dialplan truely realtime from the database? With the current realtime implentation for each context or macro still a ‘switch’ statement is needed in the extensions.conf file. For me this is the reason to use the ‘ast_data’ patches.


#2

A well designed dialplan minimizes the impact of this point. Not sure when it will be improved or what the roadmap is.


#3

u may use FUSE-based filessystem to regenerate main config from database o r yuo can patch the sources)


#4

I am interested in FUSE. In this context exactly how would it be useful?


#5

u can make filesistem and place .conf files of asterisk into it…
but u still need reload config… it is not good.
u can us, for example realtimefs(aplication) or relfs(database)
fuse.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/FileSystems

i am interest in SshFS )for config of running asterisk )


#6

Why do you need a specialized filesystem to do this?

#8

I must apologize, but I am not following. If the text files are on a standard filesystem or on a special filesystem what is the difference in terms of having to issue a reload command to obtain them?

Interesting link. Thanks. Unfortunatly not a single distributed file system in the whole lot.
