2008-07-08Backport TCP-related timeouts to IMAP voicemail in 1.4mmichelson1-0/+4
since it should solve bugs people are experiencing. Specifically, there are times where communication with the IMAP server causes system calls to block forever. If this should happen when querying the mailbox so that chan_sip's do_monitor thread can send MWI to a phone, it means that SIP calls cannot be processed any more. The timeout options are outlined in doc/imapstorage.txt. Defaults for the timeouts are sixty seconds.

2007-08-22Merge changes from team/russell/iax_refcount.russell1-1/+1
This set of changes fixes problems with the handling of iax2_user and iax2_peer objects. It was very possible for a thread to still hold a reference to one of these objects while a reload operation tries to delete them. The fix here is to ensure that all references to these objects are tracked so that they can't go away while still in use. To accomplish this, I used the astobj2 reference counted object model. This code has been in one of Luigi Rizzo's branches for a long time and was primarily developed by one of his students, Marta Carbone. I wanted to go ahead and bring this in to 1.4 because there are other problems similar to the ones fixed by these changes, so we might as well go ahead and use the new astobj if we're going to go through all of the work necessary to fix the problems. As a nice side benefit of these changes, peer and user handling got more efficient. Using astobj2 lets us not hold the container lock for peers or users nearly as long while iterating. Also, by changing a define at the top of chan_iax2.c, the objects will be distributed in a hash table, drastically increasing lookup speed in these containers, which will have a very big impact on systems that have a large number of users or peers. The use of the hash table will be made the default in trunk. It is not the default in 1.4 because it changes the behavior slightly. Previously, since peers and users were stored in memory in the same order they were specified in the configuration file, you could influence peer and user matching order based on the order they are specified in the configuration. The hash table does not guarantee any order in the container, so this behavior will be going away. It just means that you have to be a little more careful ensuring that peers and users are matched explicitly and not forcing chan_iax2 to have to guess which user is the right one based on secret, host, and access list settings, instead of simply using the username. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the asterisk-dev list. git-svn-id: http://svn.digium.com/svn/asterisk/branches/1.4@80362 f38db490-d61c-443f-a65b-d21fe96a405b

* Originally, I put in the documentation that only Zap interfaces would be supported on the trunk side. However, after a discussion with Qwell, we came up with a way to make IP trunks work as well, using some things already in Asterisk. So, here it is, this now officially supports IP trunks. * Update the SLA documentation to reflect how to setup IP trunks. * Add a section in sla.txt that describes how to set up an SLA system with voicemail. * Simplify the way DTMF passthrough is handled in MeetMe. * Fix a bug that exposed itself when using a Local channel on the trunk side in SLA. The station's channel needs to be passed to the dial API when dialing the trunk. * Change a WARNING message to DEBUG in channel.h.

This batch of changes to the SLA code does a few different things. * I made the SLA code event driven instead of having to act in a lot of busy loops while dialing things to wait for state changes. This makes the code more efficient and readable at the same time. * I have implemented a couple of new features. The first is inbound trunk ringing timeouts. This is an option that defines how long to let an incoming call on a trunk to ring. * I have also implemented ring timeouts for stations. They may be specified for the entire station, meaning it is how long to let the station ring before giving up. You can also specify a ring timeout for a specific trunk on a station. So, you can say that you only want a specific station to ring 5 seconds if it is line1 ringing, but otherwise, there is no timeout. git-svn-id: http://svn.digium.com/svn/asterisk/branches/1.4@56277 f38db490-d61c-443f-a65b-d21fe96a405b
