Hi Everyone,

This is my first post on this forum, I have recently updated the fail2ban module on our PBX and I am experiencing very high utilization of resources when enabling the new features, the version I am running is as follows:

PBX Version:

PBX Distro:


Asterisk Version:


When fail2ban runs for an extended period of time it will eventually fully utilize all of the resources available on the server,

In the /var/log/fail2ban.log I see it is constantly cycling through a list of the same IP Addresses over and over again, I have also looked in the /var/log/asterisk/fail2ban log but the behaviour has not changed much there, The major change I notice is in the /var/log/fail2ban.log,

I do have a custom whitelist from the previous version of fail2ban, could this be causing the issue as well or am I doing something wrong?


That is abnormal behavior, paste a snip showing the ‘repeating pattern’ in the log file
