SIP devices and "Unmonitored"

Hi all,

When you do a sip show peers, one of the colums returned is status,
and the value always appears to be “Unmonitored”.
I can’t seem to find any documentation around what this means.

Can anyone shed any light on this?



in that peer’s definition, put ‘qualify=yes’, and asterisk will check on it periodically…

By “check on it” you mean…?

Can it be used to raise alerts if the device is not there?
Is this functionality defined anywhere?


i don’t think it works that way…


I just looked in the source (UTSL), and found that it writes a log
message when a device fails the check, so we could use something like
swatch to capture that.

Thanks for the help.

For me, it works!
