    Hi,

    I know what qualify=xxx means but what I have noticed recently is that most of the times the delay value shown when issuing the command "sip show peers" is actually much higher than the real delay value when pinging that peer.

    Example:

    pbx*CLI> sip show peers
    Name/username Host Dyn Nat ACL Port Status
    zeetalk/8883111 <public address> N 5060 OK (25 ms)
    3112/3112 192.168.1.24 D A 5060 OK (33 ms)
    3111/3111 192.168.1.71 D A 5060 OK (16 ms)

    while when we ping the first peer's address we get an average delay of 8 ms which is three times less than the qualify value.

    What does that mean and why both values are so different? which value should we take as an indication of the average delay between the Elastix server and the provider's server?

    Thanks

    Hi yesmat,

    You should re-read what qualify=xxx means.
    Ping is always faster than a response to a sip options request.

    Hi ramoncio,

    so what you are saying is it is ok if the delay figure (in ms) is higher than the results of pingin that remote peer. But sometimes we would see that figure climb as high as 1000ms and then comes back down again after few seconds.

    is that normal?

    Thanks for you support
