[asterisk-users] multiple outbound invites

that could be caused when your upstream offers "100rel" and your Asterisk does not get a response fast enough from your upstream.
Is your outbound peer monitored by the qualify feature (qualify=yes)? 
Then asterisk should calculate the round-trip-time until a response arrives and should not resend the packets too fast.
If that does not help, you could play around with the "timert1" settings in your peer's SIP configuration.

Also, this sounds to me like a bug on the carriers side. It seems they are maybe offering "100rel" to you, but do not send any SIP/1xx responses
regarding your INVITE so your Asterisk resends these INVITEs because they are assumed lost.
Since these INVITEs all have the very same Call-ID and CSeq number, your carrier's equipment should be able to determine these packets are regarding
the same call. Again, I think your carrier should fix this problem on his site.
If he wants to enforce rate-limiting to INVITEs he should do it right by honouring the Call-IDs and sequence numbers.

If you like you can anyway send me your trace off-list, maybe there's something other weird going on.
