FreePBX, asterisk crashing, system is updated

Hi everyone,
I’m running FreePBX, 16 GB, 4xCPU on Vmware ESXi 5.5 for 60 phones and maximun of 15 simultaneous calls. FreePBX and modules are updated.

Asterisk crash 3~4 times every day. All calls busied out, GUI display “cannot connect to asterisk” and CLI hung. Phone never loose registration, not packets dropped. Server and phones are on same network.

Rebooting the server or sometimes ‘fwconsle restart’ do the trick.
Already check all the performance graph on Vmware and Linux (top, iotop, atop).
Logger stop working too (var/asterisk/full).
Using Asterisk -rvvvvvv, nothing is received.

When using fwconsole restart sometimes is received “Core FastAGI Server is not running”.

Could someone give me some clues what’s going on?

Asterisk version? Are you aware of this issue:

Asterisk 13.26.0. Does that means I hitting a bug? OMG
Thanks for your response.

I used the command: yum downgrade asterisk13*. After done:
pbx*CLI> core show version
Asterisk 13.26.0

Why is not showing version 13.22?

need to restart post downgrade:

fwconsole restart

I tried fwconsole restart and rebooted server, but same result.
Do you have any suggestion?


choose 13 again

Because you were on 13.26.0-2 and you downgraded to 13.26.0-1

I tried several time with “yum downgrade asterisk13*”. Now running version 13.23.

Is there any bug with that version?

There isn’t a bug with 13.26. Did you even read what Lorne first replied to you?

Yes, I read asterisk 3.26 were removed from SNG7 for complaints about Asterisk instability.

I was running Asterisk 3.26 from SNG7. I downgrade to 3.23
Could you please clarify?


Please re-read the message in it’s entirety. Everything is clarified there.

I read issue was solved on version 13.26-3. I preferred to downgrade instead of upgrade. Downgrade didn’t work.

Do you suggest to upgrade to 13.26.-3?
I run: fwconsole ma upgradeall. Nothing happen.

Do you have any suggestion?

What is the result of:

yum list asterisk13
