Asterisk Debugging

Turn on the debug log:

  • vi /etc/asterisk/logger.conf

Uncomment or add a line for debugging:

  • debug => notice,warning,error,verbose,debug
    debug => debug

Start the Asterisk command line:

  • asterisk -rvvvvv
    (this is showing verbose at level 5)

Set the debug level to 5:

  • core set debug 5

Turn off debug for interoffice exchange (iax):

  • iax2 set debug off

Reload the logger and rotate the log:

  • module reload logger
  • logger rotate

Perform the action such as make a call. There is going to be a ton of logs in a few minutes so use cautiously. When do with the action, turn the debug log off or set to low-level:

  • asterisk -rvvvvv
  • core set debug 0
  • module reload logger

Look at the debug file:

  • cat /var/log/asterisk/debug

Don't forget to comment out the debug in the:

  • vi /etc/asterisk/logger.conf

If you need to look at all the phone sets that are connected:

Start asterisk:

  • asterisk -rvvvvv
  • sip show peers

Or if you need just one:

  • sip show peer 04167F120093

After you make changes to the sip.conf, you can reload the changes by:

  • asterisk -rvvvvv
  • sip reload

If you need to debug sip, here's how:

  • asterisk -rvvvvv
  • sip set debug on
  • sip set debug off

If you need to debug rtp, here's how:

  • asterisk -rvvvvv
  • rtp set debug on
  • rtp set debug off
