Thanks for the quick response
With regards the call generator though, did you setup another asterisk box to perform the generation to the T2000?
On a side note, with regards the installation locations, i modified the “main” makefile to put things in
/opt/asterisk/var/log etc etc.
Can you think of any negative affect this may have. The only thing i can think of is that I would need to keep the include paths static so that if i’m compiling anything against the include files with this structure, then the headers are found, i guess the other way would be to manually go and edit the headers. I wonder if the autoconf/configure “future” additions will sort this out?
I’m about to go and make the same installation location changes with the 1.2.6 release of asterisk. What I have been doing previously is to build asterisk, start it up, do some basic testing within asterisk, run an appcert against the binaries i’ve created, then build a pkg which i could then use to “upgrade” our production systems.
I’ve currently got asterisk 1.2.5 running in 2 zones in a S10 box on Dell PE 1850’s. I read somewhere (i think it was the Digium knowledgebase) that the maximum number of concurrent calls range from 60 - 80 depending on codecs used. At that call rate the CPU’s on our syste are only peaking at 40 - 60% usage, so i figured 2 zones would make better use of the resources. I also have asterisk being monitored by the SMF (PSH Feature) of S10. Maybe I should add a section in this forum for the PSH addition, its dead handy for when asterisk crashes, its also handy for startup/shutdown/reboots etc of the box as you know from S10 onwards Sun are gonna phase out legacy startup scripts.
My next mission objective is to get this going with IPMP on the global zone for network failover. I think I may have got it going, but i need to actually test this more, ie: physically pull the cable and see what it does.
I guess these are all handy little features around the OS, I would like to try to get to a point where we can safely build * with documented optimizations for the Makefile, but I guess tat will just be a work in prgress as we move along on Sun. However, any suggestions/criticisms you may have from your experience would be appreciated.
