That wasn’t the first time asterisk stopped work with a segfault but was the first time I got backtrace records on /var/log/asterisk/full what is the problem and how can I solve that?

  • Asterisk 16.24.1
  • Debian 9.11
  • 4.9.0-11-amd64

You probably can’t. It would need to be filed as an issue[1] following the wiki instructions[2] for getting an actual backtrace, along with log and description of usage of Asterisk. The version of Asterisk in use is also a few months old so you may be asked to try the latest version instead. There is also no time frame on when such a thing would get looked into.

I’ve had quite a lot of problems with Asterisk 16 crashing seemingly at random, we decided to upgrade the servers to Asterisk 18 instead, which has been working like a charm ever since, no crashes. Perhaps worth looking into.


I will see if that is possible.

In the past I could use safe_asterisk in case of Asterisk stops unexpectedly, now looks it isn’t possible anymore:

# - Eliminated SAFE_ASTERISK since it doesn't work as LSB script (it could require a independent "safe_asterisk" init script).

Is there another way to make Asterisk get back running automatically in case it stops for any reason?
