I'm running 1.8.1 rc1 + some patches (nothing to do with memory) and 
i'm at 42MB resident (73 virt/8shared)


I've got just about everything turned on via menuselect, but then i 
have a bunch of modules turned off via modules.conf


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

[asterisk-users] Base memory usage

2010-12-30 Thread Larry Wimble


Asterisk gurus

I just installed asterisk 1.8.1.1 along with FreePBX on a fairly small 
VPS (512mb standard, 512mb burst).  I note that the asterisk process 
is using about 209mb of memory just doing nothing (not configured to do 
anything yet)


In contrast to this, my 1.6.1.2 installation from a little over a year 
ago uses only 40mb and it's fully configured and running with about 4 
months of uptime (2 trunks, 4 channels, 3 DIDs, and 4 extensions.)


Any ideas on how I can get the memory consumption down on my new 
installation, or is it time to downgrade to the older version?


Thanks,
Larry
