Maintenance Work on Wed, Dec 17, 2014

December 16th, 2014

A short note to say that kamailio.org server availability may be interrupted shortly after 18:00 (Berlin time), on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, due to scheduled maintenance work.

Among affected services:

  • main web site

  • downloads of tarballs
  • the GIT repository mirror on git.sip-router.org

Hopefully the downtime will be short and barely noticeable for most of the people!

Main GIT Repository Hosted on Github

December 15th, 2014

Kamailio Development NewsToday we moved the source code management away from an old server to a new infrastructure, based on Github. The main GIT repository that all developers use for development of Kamailio is now on a new address. The web link to it is:

The old server that was hosted by us became very old and is going to be decommissioned very soon.

For users (that cloned read-only from git.sip-router.org in the past) – it should be no change – just be sure that the DNS change has been propagated to you, because git.sip-router.org is pointing now to another server which has a real-time clone of Github repository. To know if DNS was updated on your side, browse to:

an you must be directed to Gitlist web interface:

If you end up in an URL with gitweb on it, the DNS cache on your side is still pointing to the old server.

The listed kamailio and sip-router projects are the same (the second is kept for historical reasons and it is a symlink to the first).

Gitweb is also running on the mirror, so the links from the email notifications of old commits are valid:

Once the DNS is updated, pulling/fetching in an existing clone done from git.sip-router.org should just work.

For developers – it requires to change the remote URL of your local clone to point to Github repository. Github provides access methods  via git/ssh or https: as an example of switching the remote URL to Github repository and do the push via https, got you your local clone directory and do:

git remote set-url origin https://github.com/kamailio/kamailio.git

Check the change with:

git remote -v

You should see:

origin https://github.com/kamailio/kamailio.git (push)
origin https://github.com/kamailio/kamailio.git (fetch)

When you try to push, it should ask you for your Github username and password. For Github repository access, see more details at:

GITHUB OctocatFrom now on all new commits will be pushed to github!

Hopefully the migration is going to be smooth for everyone!

New Module: statsd

December 10th, 2014

kamailio-project-newsA new module has been pushed to GIT repository: statsd. It was contributed by Eloy Coto, a recently added member to Kamailio development team.

The module provides the ability to send commands to statsd with different kind of information from the Kamailio configuration file. It provides native integration with statsd (https://github.com/etsy/statsd/) and graphite (http://graphite.wikidot.com/).

Shifting Main GIT Repository to Github

December 9th, 2014

Kamailio Development NewsThe Kamailio project has decided to move our source code repository, where all the developers contribute source code, to Github on Monday, December 15, 2015. The very old server that runs our current GIT repository for Kamailio is in desperate need of retirement.

There is already a real time mirror on Github and that is the one to become the main GIT repository – it can be found at:

The current domain git.sip-router.org will be kept and directed to a read only real time mirror of the GIT repository, therefore those users that installed Kamailio from GIT should not be affected.

GITHUB OctocatIf you are a developer with GIT write access and you cloned via ssh, you will have to change the remote URL to point to Github repository. You will be given write access to Github as well – if you haven’t sent your Github user id yet, email to <sr-dev [at] lists.sip-router.org>.

More updates will be posted once the switch is done.

New Developer: Eloy Coto Pereiro

November 28th, 2014

Kamailio Development NewsKamailio project is glad to announce that a new person got developer GIT write access to repository: Eloy Coto Pereiro.

He has developed a new module named statsd, which offers a connector from kamailio.cfg to manage values in statsd collector application, enabling further monitoring via various tools such as graphite. The module will be merged to main repository in the near future, now is available at:

His git commit id is: eloycoto

Our warm welcome and looking forward to future work within the project!

Deploying Kamailio with Puppet

November 24th, 2014

kamailio-3rd-partyGiacomo Vacca from Truphone, one of the very active community members promoting our project, has published a blog post on how to deploy Kamailio using Puppet.

Puppet describes itself as configuration management system that allows you to define the state of your IT infrastructure, then automatically enforces the correct state. Whether you’re managing just a few servers or thousands of physical and virtual machines, Puppet automates tasks that sysadmins often do manually, freeing up time and mental space so sysadmins can work on the projects that deliver greater business value.

Such knowledge is extremely useful and can save precious time to everyone handling installations of Kamailio and can be extended to manage the deployment of other components.

As a project, we welcome everyone that shares its experience and expertise, being more than happy to publish news about similar article and even host them if that makes it more convenient for the author. Do not hesitate to contact us!
