    You didn't have latency issues or packet loss on the RS and you are still experiencing distortions?


    Yes.

    What kind of distortions exactly?

    Audio gets slowed down and distorted. it's not constant but it happens often enough to be a serious issue.

    used UDP or RTP, so transmissions are not secured against packet loss


    I already said there was no packet loss, no jitter. I tested on different networks(client side) and different vps servers,

    I suppose that server is in your LAN. Isn't it?


    No. It' s a bare metal server in a data center



    If you google freeswitch + virtual server\vps you'll see that users are likely to experience issues with vps and freeswitch. They happen often enough for the freeswitch devs to specifically recommend using bare metal servers.


    Some manage to make it run OK though.


    I thought the problem was with the freeswitch internal timer or something but changing corresponding settings didn't help.


    PS CPU load is less than 5-10%, no I\O issues or network issues. It's interesting to note that switching from a pure VPS to a VPS with dedicated cores significantly reduces these distortions. So, the problem is related to virtualization. I just wish i knew if it can be fixed via changing some settings


    Regards

    Yeah I know the difference between general vps and vps with dedicated cores.=)

    you probably eliminated network latency and possible packet los

    Nah, I didn't have any latency issues or packet loss with netcup's RS4000 server.



    MTU problems

    Hmm I don't think so.


    Do you have more information you'd like to share with us?

    Tbh I was hoping someone here had some experience with running freeswitch on a virtual server without audio distortions.

    Hey guys,


    I know this in an old thread but I just wanted to share my experience with running BBB (freeswitch) on RS.(6 cores dedicated)


    I had audio distortions and I couldn't find what caused them. I tried changing specific freeswich settings in switch.conf.xml, conference.conf.xml etc but nothing helped.

    I suspect it had something to do with timing issue coz of virtualization environment.


    I had them on any VPS I tried running BBB on. It was considerably better on netcups's RS servers though compared to ordinary VPS with shared cores.


    After I have switched to a bare metal server these distortions disappeared completely.


    If anyone here had experience with running freeswitch on RS I would appreciate if you shared it here coz honestly I would prefer using netcup's RS instead of a bare metal server. I just love the ease of making snapshots too much lol.


    Thank you.

    Good day.


    I was wondering if you could help me out.


    I"m looking for a server to run BBB.


    Here is the thing:


    1) The devs mention that VPS is not recommended (see the link below). I read their explanation and followed the link they provided, but tbh I'm not convinced.


    2) The installpage contains specific requirements ( 4 core etc), however, on BBB forums I read that

    I have run BBB on Intel Pentium 2.4ghz with 2gb ram and did 20concurrent(with few video streams) successfully"

    Our distance learning student base is pretty low, for the time being, about it's about 20-30 users.


    I'd like to know whether RS 1000 would run BBB great despite having just 2 cores or should I get RS 2000?



    Thank you in advance


    PS And another question...


    Do coupons get applied to recurring payments or it's just for the first payment?


    The description says "The voucher adds a new vServer rate with a reduced monthly amount to your shopping cart "


    but I just wanted to be sure.
