Maximum channels not working with sip trunk

I have a two-satellite link that with an FreePBX running version 2.3.1 and Asterisk 1.4
I have configured my outbound trunk with Maximum channels set to 2 but I can make as many calls as I want through that trunk.

I have dedicated bandwidth for voip that only allows me to use 2 channels. I must be able to restrict asterisk to allow only 2 channels out and if someone else tries to dial then they get a busy signal.

How do I do this?

If you set max channels to 2 then after 2 is should skip that trunk. It will not count inbound calls against that trunk unless you specifically configure your trunk to use a special from-trunk-trunkname context that gets generated starting in 2.3.1 - hover over the max channels option to see the tooltip which describes this.

I am not using an inbound trunk at this point. I have set the outbound to 1 channel and I can make 3 calls and probably more but 3 at a time is all I have tested.

what version of asterisk?

Also - set it to 1, then make 2 or 3 calls as you mentioned and while the calls are active, type “group show channels” at the CLI and then paste the results here.

Using Asterisk 1.4, FreePBX 2.3.1

I have only one outbound channel and have that set to 1 channel in the freepbx trunk setup.

I was able to dial out.

Channel Group Category
SIP/525-08cf4be0 OUT_1 (default)
SIP/203-08ca4ba0 OUT_1 (default)
SIP/530-08d17048 OUT_1 (default)

Here is the full log. I dialed out on two extensions with the max channels set to 1

Either your max channel is set higher than 3 or the version of Asterisk you are running has a bug in it. Check what the global variable: OUTMAXCHANS_1 is set to in your extensions_additional.conf. If you want you can apply the patch below to your extensions_addtional.conf file as well to display the debug message in the CLI. But the logic that is being executed is correct and according to your trace, the reported number of channels in use is less than the max count, neither of which can be seen in the trace though.

I get the same for both calls.

Looks like an Asterisk bug to me then, what specific version of Asterisk are you running?

Philippe Lindheimer - FreePBX Project Lead

I am using Asterisk 1.4.10.1

Description
GROUP_COUNT([groupname][@category])
Calculates the group count for the specified group, or uses the channel’s current group if not specifed (and non-empty).

Is the channels current group set by FreePbx script?

I changed your line of
exten => s,n,Noop(Channel Count is: ${GROUP_COUNT()} Max Set is: ${OUTMAXCHANS_${DIAL_TRUNK}})
to
exten => s,n,Noop(Channel Count is: ${GROUP_COUNT(OUT_1)} Max Set is: ${OUTMAXCHANS_${DIAL_TRUNK}})

and the line returns:

Channel Count is: 1 Max Set is: 1
Channel Count is: 2 Max Set is: 1

“, or uses the channel’s current group if not specifed” - it defaults to the current group which is set earlier in the macro. This code runs on almost all versions of Asterisk. It sure sounds like 1.4.10.1 has something broken in it. Try the newest 1.4 release (1.4.13) to see if they fixed it. If not, try switching to Asterisk 1.2 until they fix it. But it is clearly an asterisk bug.

I upgraded to 1.4.13 and it does the same. I have searched for a bug report and have not found one.

any chance of trying it on 1.2 to do a sanity check that there is not something else weird going on? I can look at changing the code similar to what you did above but fundamentally the bug needs fixing in Asterisk.

Try applying this to your original extensions.conf and let me know if it works, then I’ll consider putting it in but would still like to see Asterisk fixed:

The patch works fine. Thank you very much for the 1.4 bug workaround!

Is there a way to change the message that the busy trunk gives?

The person you are calling is not available does not make sense for trunk busy or not available.

Is this being posted to bugs.digium.com?

mustardman,
you are welcome to make the report to the digium bug tracker if it is not there, and it would be a good idea for it to be posted.

Philippe Lindheimer - FreePBX Project Lead
http//freepbx.org - IRC #freepbx

When I have a problem I do just that. In this case I don’t even fully understand the problem or your solution.

mustardman,
it is your problem as it is ‘yours’ as much as the rest of the community’s software - after all it is open source. But feel free to look into it or not. Someone will eventually.

Philippe Lindheimer - FreePBX Project Lead
http//freepbx.org - IRC #freepbx

I registered a bug at bugs.digium.com and they asked: Do you have a group specified in the channel config?

I do not know how FreePBX formats then channel. The answer to this question is yes as the channel group is OUT_1, correct?
