[Spce-user] kamailio-proxy.log error - mysql lost connection

Why does sipwise crash though if its waiting for IO? Surely the call tearup
and teardown should just take longer to initiate?

Good morning, SSD’s would not work well in this environment.  SSD’s are
fast but the number of rewrites IO’s and other issues do not make it a
fit.  The burnout rate on the SSD’s is much higher than even the SATA.  The
true answer here is SAS drives at 15K RPM.  They have the longevity and the
speed to avoid issues.

As mentioned earlier with Jeremie, we have learned the hard way about
hardware choices.

Your best choice for configuration would be, SAS drives, in RAID5 with 1
hot spare/swap and 16GB ram or better.

I hope this helps.

Hi guys,

do you think SSD would cut it here? I would like your views on the write
speeds for SSD vs SAS 15K

Yup. Thanks for the advice and I agree.

When there's a high dialing subscriber and I "accidentally" access the CDRs
on the web page, the CPU spikes and everything dies.

The MYSQL seems to be the one which has the highest CPU usage at all times.

I'll be putting in a physical machine + SAS drives asap.

Thanks and appreciate your quick help.

CPU and ram usage stay low. If you see the load spiking high or staying
high get ready for a crash. I/O wait is the biggest issue to watch on
sipwise. I think Stephen and Kevin would back me up on that. 15K sas drives
have fixed any problems we were having.

Hi Jeremie, thanks for the info.

What RAID config do you have on the SASes?

Would probably take your advice on the drives. Considering it's on a VM on
a cloud provider...

Anything else like CPU / RAM which I need to be concerned with?

I/O wait kills sipwise. Just speaking from experience. If you have dial
traffic and you are using sata drives or slow drives its just a matter if
time before it breaks. We aren't using a dialer and we use sas 15K drives
