System Requirements

I seem to be having the same problem everyone else is having, so what are the minimum requirements to run asterisk? thanks

There is a new book that has a whole section on sizing and hardware considerations:

Asterisk - The Future of Telephony

As for immediate information, as always the Wiki is a good place to look: (dimensioning is a link on that page)

Just like with any application, hardware sizing is an in-exact science as it is highly dependent on how you use the system.
