Hi,
I am new to this group. I have the following Query.
Whether A2Biling and Asterisk can run on two different systems( host processor) and share a common Data base say mysql.

If yes. How / what are the configurations changes need to be done.

If No, why so much dependancy is build between 2 systems

Please clarify my doubt.

I would like to build a sysem where Asterisk can run independently on a seperate system and A2billing can be independant on seperate system but need a billing solution. Is this can be achieved

Thanks,

Hi

This is quite easily done, inspect /etc/a2billing.conf.

You will need to run a2billing.php on the asterisk server.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. I think i need to explain little more to get more clarifications

I have 2 servers one for asterisk(server 1) and another (server 2) for A2billing
1. I would like to install Asterisk customized version on server1, which doesn't have any hard disk but NFS mounted to server 2's hard disk. Here on server 1 Asterisk doesn't have any PHP, web server support.

2. A2Billing will be installaed on on server 2.where Database for A2Billing and Asterik will share the second hard disk.

Now I would like to routing functionality from server 1 and billing functionality for server 2.
If want to scale my asterisk system and required A2billing then i am planning to implement above set up.

In my set up can i use A2billing with Asterisk?
How myAsterisk and A2billing will communicate? As i could see some in A2Billing installation document, at asterisk files location /etc/asterisk some A2billing files need to be copied?

Anyone used this kind of set up?

I need help in configuration on Asterisk side as well on A2billing side

Thanks,
Sreenivas

Sorry Joe. I didn't get it.
Can you be more explanation on the script you mentioned about. Also, as i mentioned there will not be any PHP support available on server 1. I am using normal HTML, Boa and CGI for web but not PHP. This very low end configuration system where i can't install Apache, PHP.

It will b great if you explain me clealry the changes.
Thanks, Sreenivas

Hi

I'm sorry I did not explain more clearly, I was hoping that you would deduce from my comment that a2billing.php HAS to be on the asterisk server, therefore, by definition so does PHP. If this is not possible then A2Billing simply will not work.

Fine Joe.

Apart from a2billing.php are there files need called from Asterisk.? Any ideas what this file does?

Here my idea is to set up A2billing as seperate server ( As most of the commercial billing solutions available) for billing purpose. Does A2billing support RADIUS support?

Thanks,
Sreenivas

No, it does not support Radius.

You can have the web pages, Mysql database, cronjobs on another server, but asterisk and a2billing.php must be on the same server.

a2billing.php does everything to do with billing, rating and charging for the call.

From your point
"a2billing.php does everything to do with billing, rating and charging for the call" If this is the case most of the load on the system is where the Asterisk is running? correct me if i am wrong.?

Thanks, Sreenivas

There is a load on the database server, about 15 queries per call, and a load on the asterisk server to run a2billing.php

Thanks for the details.
How many simultaneous calls can be handled by Asterisk with A2Billing in terms of load.?

Do you feel running Asterisk and Database on the same system is better ?

Regards,
Sreenivas
