After sleeping on it, I am agreeing with @lgaetz - I can’t use the same rate limits that I use for SIP traffic, for provisioning scanning. I’ll have a play with a bunch of phones and work out a better scheme.
However, I am still adamant that this should not be a user-fiddleable knob. I need to figure out what the worst possible amount of data a phone needs to pull before it can register, multiply it by three, and then put that in - hopefully.
I have a Polycom here, which is UNDENIABLY the worst phone to provision (with Cisco phones coming a VERY close second), so I’ll see how confused I can make it, and base the rate limiting off that.
I also agree that the rate limiting needs to be optional, so it can be turned off for EXTRA SPECIALLY STUPID phones.
I have to pull apart my car this weekend as I’ve been putting it off for so long, but when I get sick of that I’ll throw some brain sweat into fixing this.
Thanks again Lorne - and if anyone else has any OTHER suggestions or requests, now is the time to ask about them!
