pkill? nice? That is not asterisk. Are you sure you got the right
process? Maybe you got safe_asterisk instead? If it is safe_asterisk:

1. That script is pointless now that you have systemd. Replace it with a
simple systemd unit (hint: Restart=on-failure gets you most of the way

Isn't there one already included with Asterisk by now?

2. Use the option -f of strace to see the exact error message. What is
error status 34 of asterisk? ERANGE?
