Asterisk 1.8.9.3 Problem With Logger

Hi

I have recently upgraded a box to 1.8.9.3 and have noticed that
randomly the logger will just stop working. It stops logging to the
console and to the log files. Reloading logger actually freezes the
console. It seems to happen when Asterisk tries to rotate it’s log
files but it may happen at other times too, The only way I have
managed to get it back is to kill and restart asterisk. Any ideas what
is going on.

Regards

Jon

  • I’m pretty sure there is an existing issue in JIRA about this. Try
    searching it first, if not open a new issue so we can triage it. It is
    likely a deadlock so attach the required information for it.

  • Is this a general issue or just affecting specific versions?

  • Hi

    Just realised this is due to a FIFO blocking. Fixed that and all back to normal.

  • Our experience has always been, with all versions of Asterisk, that when
    you do an “originate” command from Asterisk CLI then it stops showing CLI
    verbose and one has to open a new terminal to see the verbose. Logging
    status is in disarray in all version. These behaviours breaks security
    tools depending on logs.

    Best,
