[jitsi-dev] Re: Resources hog + unable to call landline


#1

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. The processes are all simultaneous, it's the list of jitsi relalted processes from htop command on GNU/Linux terminal. This is rather new, it didn't happen before although nothing changed on my computer (jitsi version nor OS).
As a test I've disabled my registrar less account and things seem to be better. The tray icon kept blinking before, now it doesn't. There are still a lot of Jitsi processes going on but it's not consuming as much resources.

I've downloaded the latest nightly build, great interface improvement there, looks really cool!! I've realised that my registrarless account (diamondcard) was offline although at the top of the main window I have my registrarless number and a green circle underneath it stating "Online". If I click on it I can see my SIP (iptel.org) and XMPP (jit.si) are online but not registrarless. This is quite confusing.

So I went to diamondcard.us site and found detailed instructions to configure Jitsi
http://wiki.diamondcard.us/podwiki?page=Jitsi
Now the calls get through, although the registrarless account keeps disconnecting and re-connecting all the time. Landline calls also disconnect sometimes, and I can only hear my echo on the phone, no sound on the computer. Microphone on computer is disabled by default and even after activating, no sound on the phone, only echo of my own voice.

Then I removed Jitsi completely and reinstalled the stable builds, ignored the instructions from diamondcard and tried to call. Surprise surprise, it works! I could make the call but again, a lot of resources while idle.

So I've uninstalled again and reinstalled the nightly build. No sound on the telephone, no window with the call info on the computer. Tried to call again and the sip from diamondcard got disconnected although on the main window the green online sign is there.

I'm no expert in telephony and softphone but I'm rather into computers and getting my way around. I will keep the stable build and ignore the diamondcard instructions. This was a rather painful experience and I hope there's something that can be done. Hope it might help to make Jitsi better!

Thanks again
Happy new year
best of luck
William

Hey William

Are those dozens of Jitsi processes in your screenshot or is that historical data?

From what I can tell from the logs, these are active processes. Usually Jitsi creates a lock to prevent
launching multiple instances. Please kill them all and start just one instance. As far as the landline
problems goes, I can't say much as the logs are polluted with 'subscribe' requests from probably those
multiple instances.

As far as I know we also fixed some problems with registrarless SIP accounts, one of them being something
with endless reconnections. So unless you need them, delete those accounts or see if updating to the
current nightly helps.

Regards,
Ingo

Hey

Good to hear that you had some success.

Just a note on registrarless accounts: These can usually only be used on the
local LAN as most computers are behind a NAT or have dynamic addresses. So
if you have any registrarless accounts left, delete them. A SIP account is
created as registrarless if you enter a SIP id without a domain (so e.g.
just "alice" instead of "alice@example.org"). The instructions on the
Diamondcard Wiki seem to be correct with that regard.

Regards,
Ingo

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. The processes are all simultaneous, it's the list of
