  • Oh! Wait you set ulimit for running shell You should set ulimit on
    asterisk. Also you can set ulimit command on asterisk startup file /
    etc/init.d/asterisk and restart asterisk also you can set in
    limit.conf file

    I had this issue before and I solved that way.

  • The problem remains even when

    I add to /etc/init.d/asterisk
    ulimit -n 65536

    [root@localhost ~]# ulimit -a
