This method of timing was previously the only means by which Asterisk could receive timing. As long as the dahdi module is loaded, it will provide timing to Asterisk either through installed telephony hardware or utilizing the kernel timing facilities when separate hardware is not available. For users who are upgrading from Asterisk 1. Report a bug Atlassian News Atlassian. At the time of Asterisk 1.

It has the benefit of being efficient, and if a system is already going to use DAHDI hardware, then it makes good sense to use this timing source.
These timing interfaces are “ordered” based on a hard-coded priority number defined in each of the modules. Because Kqueue is not available on Linux, this module will not compile or be available there. Now that you know Asterisk’s default preferences for timing modules, you may decide that you have a different preference. Even though internal timing is not a requirement for most Asterisk functionality, it may be advantageous to use it since the alternative is to use timing based on incoming frames of audio.
Historical Note Icon At the time of Asterisk 1. Beginning with Asterisk 1.
Asterisk Timing Interfaces
If you receive an error message regarding dahhdi not working correctly, then you can use one of the following suggestions to disable a faulty timing module. This interface has the benefit of being very efficient, but at the time this is being written, it is a relatively dxhdi feature on Linux, meaning that its availability is not widespread. Alternatively, you may have been directed to this document due to an error you are currently experiencing with Asterisk.
For users who are upgrading from Asterisk 1. It may also be used when generating audio for playback, such as from a file.
In fact, this is the only timing source currently usable on a non-Linux system. Using internal timing prevents such unreliability.

At the time of Asterisk 1. Report a bug Atlassian News Atlassian. The only functionality that requires internal timing is IAX2 trunking.
Asterisk includes the following timing modules: One common misconception which has arisen is that since timing can be provided elsewhere, DAHDI is no longer required for using the MeetMe application. Powered by Atlassian Confluence 5. As of the time of this writing, the preferences for the modules is the following: Asterisk includes the following timing modules:.
If, however, there is no need for DAHDI other than as a timing source, this timing source may seem unattractive. This method of timing was previously the only means by which Asterisk could receive timing. Starting with Asterisk 1. By default, Asterisk will build and load all of the timing interfaces.
Dahdi Dummy | AsteriskFAQs
This timing interface is only available on Linux systems using a kernel version at least 2. As long as the dahdi module is loaded, it will provide timing to Asterisk either through installed telephony hardware or utilizing the kernel timing facilities when separate hardware is dum,y available. Unfortunately, this is not the case. If there are no incoming frames or if the incoming frames of audio are from an unreliable or jittery source, then the corresponding outgoing audio will also be unreliable, or even worse, nonexistent.
