yate - launch the YATE telephony engine
yate [options] [commands]
yate is a telephony engine that supports client, PBX and IVR functions trough plugins.
General -h, --help Display a short help message and exit -V, --version Display program version and exit -v Verbose logging (you can use more than once) -q Quieter logging (you can use more than once) -d Daemonify, suppress output unless logged -s Supervised, restart if crashes or locks up -r Enable rotation of log file (needs -s and -l) -l filename Log to file - should be used whenever running in daemon mode -p filename Write PID of the supervisor or primary thread to file -n configname Use specified configuration name, overrides default "yate" -c pathname Path to conf files directory, overrides compiled-in value -u pathname Path to user data files directory, overrides compiled-in value -m pathname Path to modules directory, overrides compiled-in value -e pathname Path to shared directory, overrides compiled-in value -x relpath Relative path to extra modules directory (can be repeated) -w directory Change working directory -N nodename Set the name of the node in a cluster Debugging options (may not be compiled in) -C Enable core dumps if supported by the operating system -F Increase the maximum file handle to compiled value -t Truncate the log file instead of appending to it -D[options] Special debugging options -Da Abort (coredumps if allowed) if bugs are encountered -Dm Attempt to debug mutex deadlocks by setting a maximum 10s limit, if repeated halves the limit -Dd Enable some locking debugging and safety features, degrades performance -Dl Attempt to load modules without having their symbols globally visible -Dc Call dlclose() until it gets an error -Du Do not unload modules, just try to call thier finalization code -Di Reinitialize after first initialization -Dx Exit immediately after initialization -Dw Delay for one second the creation of the first worker thread -Do Colorize the output using ANSI control character sequences -Ds Abort if bugs are encountered even during shutdown -DO Attempt to debug all object allocations by counting objects per plugin, degrades performance -Dt Add start time relative timestamps to debugging messages -De Add EPOCH (1-1-1970 GMT) based timestamps to debugging messages -Df Add GMT timestamps to debugging messages in format YYYYMMDDhhmmss.uuuuuu -DF Add GMT timestamps to debugging messages in format YYYY-MM-DD_hh:mm:ss.uuuuuu -Dz Add local timezone timestamps to debugging messages in format YYYYMMDDhhmmss.uuuuuu -DZ Add local timezone timestamps to debugging messages in format YYYY-MM- DD_hh:mm:ss.uuuuuu
Each command is sent to the YATE modules immediately after initialization. Modules define command syntax so that is not described here. Please look at the documentation for each module.
- SIGTERM and SIGINT (Ctrl-C) will cleanly stop the engine - SIGQUIT (Ctrl-\) will reinitialize the modules - SIGHUP will reinitialize the modules if started in daemon mode (-d) - SIGUSR1 will initiate a gracefull restart (when no plugin is busy) - SIGUSR2 will initiate an immediate restart
Under various *BSD implementations the dlclose() function is broken and may generate a segfault on exit. Some libpthread implementations are broken and may fail to start the threads or fail to cleanup when the thread terminates.
