I doubt that's your issue, but if you're interested to see my 
modules.conf, it's temporarily at 
http://jeremy.kister.net/tmp/modules.conf



Thanks a bunch guys!

I pruned the modules loading and that did the job, although I found 
something interesting in doing so:


Removing modules one by one seemed to have virtually no effect until I 
got to chan_iax2.so.  Removing this module dropped memory consumption 
from 209mb to 16mb (looking at the RES column in the output of `top'). 


Once again, thanks for your suggestions ... Works like a charm!

Kind Regards,
Larry

Check /var/log/asterisk/full from your last 1.6 startup.  The list of
modules from there should be what you need in 1.8.

Here is a future timesaver - use this command to see what is eating the
asterisk memory before you start removing stuff:
Pmap -d `pgrep asterisk`

This will run a pmap on the active asterisk process

This is click-to-call.  It can be done with the Asterisk Manager Interface
(AMI).  See this site:

Thanks to you and Tilghman for this, though as it turned out it was much
simpler to avoid AMI completely and use the Extension: parameter to an
outgoing call file.

Apparently, it's a known issue:
