* add messages at start-up and to the VTY
* users must explicitly confirm they want to run osmo-nitb
Previous code relied on abort() switching sigaction to SIG_FDL +
retriggering SIGABRT in case the signal handler returns, which would
then generate the coredump + terminate the process.
However, if a SIGABRT is received from somewhere else (kill -SIGABRT),
then the process would print the talloc report and continue running,
which is not desired.
When somebody kills the process, it's best to handle the signal
and to use the opportunity for some cleanup. We always did this
in the NITB on SIGINT, but never on SIGTERM. Let's change it.
This option was present in very early versions of the NITB, but
at least since 2011 it is no longer supported. It's still listed
in --help output, which is wrong.
Use new function available in libosmocore to set up timers. Compile
This option allows to enable or disable TCH/F allocation on the
TCH/F_TCH/H_PDCH timeslots. Until now, source code modification
was required to enable this feature.
With the OsmoMSC program coming up, the name osmo_msc_data becomes even
more confusing than it already is. Clearly indicate it as libbsc's data of
a remote MSC by prefixing with bsc_.
Also, the Osmocom community has in the meantime agreed to have the osmo_
prefix only in libosmocore, to avoid naming conflicts in case things are
moved there. So while renaming anyway, also drop the osmo_ prefix.
Since ce9fec3e896571835ac5bfd2980d6836f2b29f0d libosmocore ignores
parameters to log_vty_command_* functions. Hence parameter of
logging_vty_add_cmds() is ignored too. As we depend on much later
libosmocore version anyway, we can simplify code somewhat by removing
parameters which will be ignored anyway.
Call vty_init() before handle_options() to make sure the host.app_info is
populated before --version potentially tries to print it.
The segfault was introduced by 2c05f75bbf3d9a69eee1fe78eb5552acf1d7671d in a
recent MSC-split merge.
Now that bsc_network_alloc() is separate, move it to before the VTY init (a
subsequent patch will pass the gsm_network instance as a parameter to
bsc_hack.c: drop the comment that says about the VTY init: "This needs to
precede handle_options()" -- it is not accurate. Actually move the
handle_options() above both vty_init() and the bsc_network_alloc() calls, to be
able to decide which mncc callback to pass to bsc_network_alloc. It would make
sense to set this later on, but that would require further refactoring of the
bsc_network_init() and gsm_network_init() signatures, so not in this patch.
For patch clarity, keep some code dup to be removed in a subsequent patch. In
the same sense don't change the fact that mncc_sock_init()'s return value is
The global gsm_network instance 'bsc_gsmnet' is basically only used by the VTY,
and a future patch will "hide" that global in a vty .c file. In a nutshell, I
- first allocate a gsm_network,
- then initialize the VTY passing the gsm_network pointer,
- and then read the config file using the initialized VTY.
So far, bsc_bootstrap_network() allocates the gsm_network and reads the config
file right away, which only works by sharing the extern bsc_gsmnet pointer,
which I would like to uncouple.
Adds the -p --pcap option to the help text.
After libosmocore 38d232ee5d2ceb045d9ad6d3a23afcb4972523f7 which outputs
'CTRL at <ip> <port>' from ctrl_interface_setup_dynip(), there's no need to log
the CTRL bind here anymore.
Add an explicit gsm_network pointer instead of using the bsc_gsmnet global.
This allows passing a gsm_network struct from the main() scope, which helps to
decouple libmsc from libbsc.
Decouple the talloc context allocations from global tall_bsc_ctx pointer.
It appears that talloc_ctx_init() was intended for general use, since it is
located in libcommon. It is currently used only by osmo-nitb; but the upcoming
osmo-cscn will use it as well.
Instead of defining in osmo-nitb main file, add definition in gsm_data.h.
As the NITB has an internal SIGABRT handler that prints a talloc report,
let's also print a stack backtrace at the same point.
To avoid two phones picking mismatching TCH pchans, never pick TCH/F on dynamic
TS in osmo-nitb.
Add gsm_network flag dyn_ts_allow_tch_f, set to true by default in
Set this flag to false in osmo-nitb's main().
Reasoning about ways to solve this:
* a compile time switch doesn't work because libbsc is first compiled and then
linked to both osmo-nitb and osmo-bsc.
* we could test net->bsc_api == msc_bsc_api(), but I have the so-called MSC
split waiting on branch sysmocom/cscn, which will result in msc_bsc_api() not
being linked in the osmo-bsc binary.
* have a function am_i_nitb() with different implementations in osmo-nitb and
osmo-bsc, but then we'd need to add implementations to all tests and other
binaries linking lchan_alloc().
* have a flag in struct bsc_api, but so far there are only function pointers
Having a "global" flag in gsm_network allows to add a VTY command in case we
decide to keep this feature (#1781), has no linking implications and is nicely
Tested that osmo-bsc still picks TCH/F on dyn TS indirectly, since I have no
standalone MSC available: when compiling osmo-nitb with the line that sets
dyn_ts_allow_tch_f = false commented out, TCH/F is picked as described in
OS#1778; and by printf-verifying that dyn_ts_allow_tch_f == true in osmo-bsc
main(), only osmo-nitb should have TCH/F disabled.

This provides helpful information for debugging internal MNCC handler.
Make the SMPP bind address configurable (used to be harcoded as "0.0.0.0").
Add VTY command
local-tcp A.B.C.D <1-65535>
while keeping the old command 'local-tcp-port <1-65535>'. Both the old and the
new command immediately change the SMPP listening address and port.
Add a LOGL_NOTICE log when the SMPP listening address and/or port change.
However, to be useful, this patch has to go somewhat further: refactor the
initialization procedure, because it was impossible to run the VTY commands
without an already established connection.
The SMPP initialization procedure was weird. It would first open a connection
on the default port, and a subsequent VTY port reconfiguration while reading
the config file would try to re-establish a connection on a different port. If
that failed, smpp would switch back to the default port instead of failing the
program launch as the user would expect. If anything else ran on port 2775,
SMPP would thus refuse to launch despite the config file having a different
port: the first bind would always happen on 0.0.0.0:2775. Change that.
In the VTY commands, merely store address and port if no fd is established yet.
Introduce several SMPP initialization stages:
* allocate struct and initialize pointers,
* then read config file without immediately starting to listen,
* and once the main program is ready, start listening.
After that, the VTY command behaves as before: try to re-establish the old
connection if the newly supplied address and port don't work out. I'm not
actually sure why this switch-back behavior is needed, but fair enough.
In detail, replace the function
with the various steps
smpp_smsc_alloc_init() -- prepare struct for VTY commands
smpp_smsc_conf() -- set addr an port only, for reading the config file
smpp_smsc_start() -- establish a first connection, for main()
smpp_smsc_restart() -- switch running connection, for telnet VTY
smpp_smsc_stop() -- tear down connection, used by _start() twice
I'd have picked function names like "_bind"/"_unbind", but in the SMPP protocol
there is also a bind/unbind process, so instead I chose the names "_start",
"_restart" and "_stop".
The smsc struct used to be talloc'd outside of smpp_smsc_init(). Since the smsc
code internally uses talloc anyway and employs the smsc struct as talloc
context, I decided to enforce talloc allocation within smpp_smsc_alloc_init().
Be stricter about osmo_signal_register_handler() return codes.
Add ctrl_vty_init() calls and feed the ctrl_vty_get_bind_addr() return value to
ctrl_interface_setup() in the following programs:
For osmo-sgsn, move the control interface setup invocation below the config
parsing, so that the ctrl_vty_get_bind_addr() can return the configured
Abort upon unknown options and missing option arguments. This came to my
attention while rewiring the -m and -M options: passing -M without argument
would launch nitb with wrong configuration. So, rather exit immediately.
If there are legacy options that should be ignored, they deserve an own 'case:'
in the option switch. There are none that I'm aware of though.
Strictly speaking, the unix domain socket location is not a name but a path.
The MNCC socket is called path, so it is confusing to call the ctrl socket
The old -m option without argument is still available and marked deprecated,
to not make users' lives more difficult than necessary.

clang complained that different enums are mixed with the
return type and we actually want this to be an int now.
Make every line use same punctuation style ('.' at the end and start in caps).
Insert spaces to have all help texts in a column.
Currently every subcriber object directly refers to the gsm_network
which contains a flag shared by every related subscriber
(keep_subscr). This adds a dependency on gsm_network even if only the
function defined in gsm_subscriber_base.c are used.
This patch adds a new struct gsm_subscriber_group which contains the
keep_subscr flag and a back reference to the network object. The
latter is not dereferenced in gsm_subscriber_base.c, so it can safely
be set to NULL when only that part of the gsm_subscriber API is being
used. It also changes that API to use gsm_subscriber_group instead of
Since there are some places where a pointer to the gsm_network is
needed but where only a gsm_subscriber is available, a 'net' back
pointer is added to the group struct, too. Nevertheless subscr group
and network could be separated completely, but this is not the topic
of this commit.
