Greetings list,

I have a scenario where half a dozen phones at a site appear to be dropping offline for a few seconds every few hours, but the connection between them and the asterisk server remains up.

It’s been suggested to me that the problem might be to do with qualify –
which is enabled in this case. However, I don’t really want to disable it if at all possible – it’s a very good early warning indicator of network problems, and has often proved useful in diagnosing network faults – especially with end users’ *DSL connections not provided by us.

AIUI from the documentation, qualifysmoothing effectively “averages” the last two qualify results. Is there any way to increase this, so a device won’t be considered unavailable until, for example, 3 consecutive qualify packets have been missed?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
