Asterisk shuts down and restarts 2 processes



  • Hi, I've got a big Problem with my asterisk on pfsense. It's the asterisk 1.8 package installed through the package system of the web gui. So nothing fancy.
    Yet after a while the asterisk process stops with:

    
    ...
    [Nov 15 20:14:26]     -- Remote UNIX connection
    [Nov 15 20:14:26] Beginning asterisk shutdown....
    [Nov 15 20:14:26] Asterisk cleanly ending (0).
    [Nov 15 20:14:26] Executing last minute cleanups
    ...
    
    

    After that asterisk get's automatically restarted but it starts 2 processes interfering with each other.

     ps aux | grep asterisk
    asterisk 12817   0.0  0.9 503796 27208  -  Is    8:49PM     0:02.60 /usr/local/sbin/asterisk -n -F -U asterisk
    asterisk 12903   0.0  0.9 504436 27496  -  Is    8:49PM     0:02.93 /usr/local/sbin/asterisk -n -F -U asterisk
    
    

    This ends up in a log like this:

    
    ...

    This repeats forever more until I either kill the 2 processes or restart asterisk completely though the web gui. Worth noting is, that this happens even with the default config that comes with the package.
    I'm kind at an end with this since the logs don't tell me much apart from that's asterisk stopped. Just not why it stopped.
    Any ideas? Is it a bug? Any other relevant logs I can paste?



  • Normally there can only be a single instance of Asterisk, but it takes a moment before the pid file is written and another starting instance can check this. In /etc/rc.start_packages the Asterisk packages gets started 2 times: at first by calling start_service() and then by explicitly executing /usr/local/etc/rc.d/asterisk.sh. This happens so fast that two instances are typically running, which may cause a couple of problems subsequently.

    A simple fix is to add the statementsleep(1);just before the statement```
    $shell = @popen("/bin/sh", "w");

    The second instance will then not start. A better fix is probably fixing the Asterisk package by renaming the rc-file to asterisk instead naming it asterisk.sh.

    @Fesoj:

    As already noted elsewhere, that file should not exist at all.



  • Yep.
