1. Dispatcher Module Daniel-Constantin Mierla FhG FOKUS Copyright © 2004 FhG FOKUS __________________________________________________________________ 1.1. Overview 1.2. Parameters 1.2.1. list_file (string) 1.2.2. force_dst (int) 1.2.3. flags (int) 1.3. Functions 1.3.1. ds_select_dst(set, alg) 1.4. FIFO Interface 1.4.1. Dumping the current configuration 1.4.2. Reloading the dispatcher list 1.5. Installation And Running 1.1. Overview This modules implements a dispatcher for destination addresses. It computes hashes over parts of the request and selects an address from a destination set. The selected address is used then as outbound proxy. The module can be used as a stateless load balancer, having no guarantee of fair distribution. The dispatcher module offers reloads on the fly using sercmd. 1.2. Parameters 1.2.1. list_file (string) Path to the file with destination sets. Default value is "/etc/ser/dispatcher.list" or "/usr/local/etc/ser/dispatcher.list". Example 1. Set the "list_file" parameter ... modparam("dispatcher", "list_file", "/var/run/ser/dispatcher.list") ... 1.2.2. force_dst (int) If set to 1, force overwriting of destination address when that is already set. Default value is "0". Example 2. Set the "force_dst" parameter ... modparam("dispatcher", "force_dst", 1) ... 1.2.3. flags (int) Various flags that affect the hashing behaviour. For now only the flag 1 and 2 are defined. If flag 1 is set only the username part of the uri will be used when computing an uri based hash. If flag 2 is set the username part of the uri will be used and if no username part is present the hostname part will be used. If no flags are set the username, hostname and port will be used The port is used only if different from 5060 (normal sip uri) or 5061 (in the sips case). Default value is "0". Example 3. Set the "flags" parameter ... modparam("dispatcher", "flags", 1) ... 1.3. Functions 1.3.1. ds_select_dst(set, alg) The method selects a destination from addresses set. Meaning of the parameters is as follows: * set - the id of the set from where to pick up destination address. It is the first column in destination list file. * alg - the algorithm used to select the destination address. + "0" - hash over callid + "1" - hash over from URI. + "2" - hash over to URI. + "3" - hash over the Request-URI. + "X" - if the algorithm is not implemented, the first entry in set is chosen. Example 4. ds_select_dst usage ... ds_select_dst("1", "0"); ... 1.4. FIFO Interface The module allows dumping the current configuration as well as dispatcher list reloading via the FIFO interface. There are two FIFO commands to use with dispatcher. * dispatcher.dump - dump the current dispatcher sets * dispatcher.reload - reload the dispatcher list text file 1.4.1. Dumping the current configuration The command dispatcher.dump can be used to dump the currently deployed dispatcher list in the SER internal notation. Example 5. dumping the active dispatcher list # sercmd dispatcher.dump flags: DI_MAX_SETS: 16 DI_MAX_NODES: 16 DI_MAX_URILEN: 256 Active dispatcher list: 0 Set '0' node 0 sip: node 1 sip: node 2 sip: node 3 sip: Set '1' is empty Set '2' is empty Set '3' is empty Set '4' is empty Set '5' is empty Set '6' is empty Set '7' is empty Set '8' is empty Set '9' is empty Set '10' is empty Set '11' is empty Set '12' is empty Set '13' is empty Set '14' is empty Set '15' is empty End of dispatcher list # 1.4.2. Reloading the dispatcher list The command dispatcher.reload can be used to update the dispatcher list while running SER. Example 6. Reloading the dispatcher list # sercmd fifo dispatcher.reload dispatcher list 1 activated # 1.5. Installation And Running Example 7. Destination List File Each destination point must be on one line. First token is the set id and next is destination address. The set id must be an integer value. Destination address must be a valid SIP URI. Empty lines or lines starting with "#" are ignored. # $Id$ # dispatcher destination sets # # proxies 2 sip: 2 sip: # gateways 1 sip: 1 sip: 1 sip: Example 8.
