Re: OPTIONs flood with large numbers of registered users

Hi Brett,

If you are using nathelper module, use multipe timer processes for pinging (it is a module parameter). This will partition and distribute the pings between multiple procs and different moments.

Hello List!
I having a problem with a registrar server that has a large number of registered users. Actually, it's not really even that large, just a few thousand. 

When the server sends out OPTIONs pings, it is creating a huge spike in bandwidth that is making the edge router very unhappy. Network interface is gigabit ethernet and it's essentially sending it out as fast as it can. Granted it's not a whole lot of data, but it's a very brief spike that the router doesn't like. 

Is there anyway to spread out the requests a little bit? Has anyone else seen anything like this?

Thanks,
Brett

Another way to tackle this is to enable pinging from your sip clients. Makes things quite simpler.
