SAFE_ASTERISK(8)	   Linux Programmer's Manual	      SAFE_ASTERISK(8)

NAME
       safe_asterisk --	A wrapper to run the asterisk executable in a loop

SYNOPSIS
       safe_asterisk [ asterisk_params ]

DESCRIPTION
       safe_asterisk  is  a  script that runs asterisk in a loop, which	can be
       useful if you fear asterisk may crash.

       The script does not run in the  background  like	 a  standard  service.
       Rather,	it  runs in its	own linux virtual console (9, by default).  It
       also uses the option '-c' of asterisk(8)	to  avoid  detaching  asterisk
       from that terminal.

       safe_asterisk  also  runs  asterisk  with unlimited core	file size, and
       thus asterisk will dump core in case of a crash.

       To get a	"picture" of console 9,	from another terminal (e.g: from a re-
       mote shell session) you can use:

	 screendump 9

       The init	script of the Debian package should be able to run safe_aster-
       isk as the asterisk service, if so configured. See coments in  /etc/de-
       fault/asterisk

FILES
       /tmp
	      safe_asterisk runs in that directory, rather than	in / as	usual.

       /tmp/core
	      If core files were generated there, they may be

       /etc/asterisk/startup.d
	      Files  in	 this directory	will be	'source'd by the safe_asterisk
	      script before it starts Asterisk proper, allowing	 them  to  set
	      additional environment variables or run any other	steps that are
	      needed for your system.

BUGS
       While showing the output	on a console is	useful,	using screen(1)	as the
       terminal	may be better.

       The  script  does  not  read configuration from standard	location under
       /etc

       It uses fixed locations under /tmp , and	thus may be exposed to a  sym-
       link attacks.
