Seeking help on 100% asterisk thread on FreePBX

This problem bug me for long time and I have no clue.

The FreePBX distro runs fine for hours or days but at some point it will consume 100% CPU for a process.

After tracing the thread, the following information is obtained. And I have no idea on which module eat up the CPU.

My set up is the latest FreePBX x64 with asterisk 11.8.1.
The only manual module that I loaded was chan_dongle and G729, G723 codec.

Thanks fo your help.

I would suspect all of the above, chan_dongle and G729, G723, but less likely chan_dongle, do you have valid licenses and legitimate binaries for G729 and G723? How did you install them?

I use the free version and not the one from asterisk.

And just download the library and put it in the directory

Then you will surely have to ask the Latvians for help, no?

I can get rid of the codec if it is matter. I actually dont use it in my implementation. I will try to remove those codec first. Thanks.

Of course it matters, if you unilaterally decide to install bogus software, then you are equally unilaterally responsible for fixing your problems when the software breaks things, was the $10 you saved worth it ?

(that just for others who will find that Digium are no longer stupid when it comes to protecting their intellectual property :wink: )

Thanks, I will run it for few days and check.

Though we try to be helpful as much as we can on many thingz there is a zero tolerance policy for illegal and stolen software. We do not support systems that are known to have these components.
