What is the maximum number of meetme’s allowed by asterisk.

On my server with an 8 GB memory, I start getting the following error after 150-160 meetme’s are created

WARNING[3485]: app_meetme.c:1820 conf_run: Unable to open DAHDI pseudo channel: Cannot allocate memory

At this time the server still has about 6 GB of free memory. I even tried this on a server with higher memory, it gives the same result.

I am using asterisk 1.4.44.

  • What architecture are you using? You would need to be running a 64 bit OS to take advantage of the higher memory.

    You have probably run out of file descriptors. Try ulimit -n 8192
    before starting asterisk (or in the safe_asterisk-script or the init.d-script).

    I think this is per default 1024 on debian, and if you use sip + meetme you will hit the limit with about 150 concurrent calls.

  • I am using 64-bit Linux OS. Also before starting asterisk I have set the ulimit to a higher value.

    When this happened there was no calls in the system. There was only about 160 Meetme conferences, and in each Meetme there was only one channel.
