High CPU Statics

We are getting a lot more calls as of late than when I rolled out Asterisk/Freepbx, and I have noticed the call quality is going down as the number of calls goes up. can someone recommend so steps I can do to help this? we are running Current Asterisk Version:** 13.18.3, PBX Firmware:10.13.66-22. how much is to much for FreePBX? I have 8 GB RAM and 4 CPU’s. Thanks for your time and attention. would update to 14 help?

I may have found the issue, somehow the log settings was set to debug. I’m not 100% sure that was the issue, but the CPU is running at an average of 50% now instead of 90%, so here’s hoping!

nope that wasn’t it… any other suggestions?

Are you running fop2?

Flash Operator Panel 2? no.

when you run htop from the cli what do you see is consuming your cpu and memory?

Couldn’t copy and past from htop but here is the top of top… :wink:

i’m assuming what comes after the httpd got cut off or does it just end at httpd?

no it ends at httpd…
trying a screenshot

CLick on the CPU% header and do the same thing

Also click on the Mem header and paste the screen shot

sorry first time I’ve used htop

what is the screen shot when you sort by the mem% header?

so just as a side note, it is a little better today. yesterday it was running at 80-95% of CPU almost all day.

If it happens again, run top and press ‘c’ while it’s running, it will show you the full command for each process.

If httpd is cranking your load, that should be easy to diagnose by looking at /var/log/httpd/access_log to see what’s being used. Could be UCP, CDR reports, etc., maybe even a malfunctioning phone app… If your box is exposed to the world with no firewall, it could even be brute force login attempts.

It is behind a firewall and locked down to allow only the two ISP’s IP. I will check out that “C” for top next time I see it.

well, I’m not sure if today was just lighter day than yesterday, but here’s the only thing I did. I reconfigured the server to have two 4 core procs instead of eight 1 core procs… #NothingElseISwear

How many users are in your main ring group/queue?

why is there so much web server usage? how many zulu users do you have?

Also that one asterisk [email protected]% should ideally not be doing that, do you have a routing loop somewhere?

Edit: also what’s your wait time in regular top?

sorry late to getting back to you, we have 3 different queues, they each have about 10-15 users in each.

14 zulu users, never ran top before the issue showed up, so I have no base line. how would I know if I have a routing loop?
