[asterisk-users] Maximum number of users

    How did the system behave with 244 calls? I've been able to make 1,024
concurrent faxes (which tend to use more resources than audio calls) in the
lab. The problem I had was after the faxes were transmitted, things couldn't
keep up and kept dumping core. Two things were going on, (1) the CDR was
written to MySQL and (2) a FastAGI script (I use the AGISpeedy PERL package)
to write a log entry also to MySQL. I tried switching the CDR's to sqlite
and that seemed able to keep up, except that its concurrency issues were a
problem. If MySQL is the problem, I could probably optimize it better, but
it doesn't explain the Asterisk core dumps. It might be related to the
number of FastAGI scripts running, I'm not sure at this point.

The better question is,  maximum number of users (IP Phones) can your
hardware support. I have * deployments with 300-600 phones. - works fine.
though concurrent calls has never seen more then 244. Also at this point I
have to ask, for this to be any concern to you, you must either A, Make tons
of internal calls. OR B have multiple T1's/lots of sip channels?

Can someone advise me what is the maximum number of users (IP Phones) that
can be supported by asterisk 1.8 or later?
