I just installed asterisk 126.96.36.199 along with FreePBX on a fairly small
VPS (512mb standard, 512mb “burst”). I note that the asterisk process
is using about 209mb of memory just doing nothing (not configured to do
In contrast to this, my 188.8.131.52 installation from a little over a year
ago uses only 40mb and it’s fully configured and running with about 4
months of uptime (2 trunks, 4 channels, 3 DIDs, and 4 extensions.)
Any ideas on how I can get the memory consumption down on my new
installation, or is it time to “downgrade” to the older version?
