[Freeswitch-users] Load test - performance not even matching Asterisk

Like I told the other guy we are pretty much done supporting people doing
I know for a fact that on my dual core wood crest that is now 4 years old
that I can bring up 3000 channels
playing a file out RTP at 20ms ptime, 5000 if i switch to 60 and 10000 if i
use 120ms ptime.
Ken can also attest to these numbers as well as provide you with his numbers
from his own testing I'm sure.
This is a fact. If you cannot reproduce it then it's not my problem. I
know for a fact that you are clearly
trying to develop a commercial application and I have subtly pointed out
that you need to seek commercial support.
Now I am making it crystal clear, Stop asking for help about load testing
unless you are going to pay for our
time to teach you how to set it up properly.
