-.PP 
-\fBasterisk\fR is a full-featured telephony server which 
-provides Private Branch eXchange (PBX), Interactive Voice Response (IVR), 
-Automated Call Distribution (ACD), Voice over IP (VoIP) gatewaying,  
-Conferencing, and a plethora of other telephony applications to a broad 
-range of telephony devices including packet voice (SIP, IAX2, MGCP, Skinny, 
-H.323, Unistim) devices (both endpoints and proxies), as well as traditional TDM 
-hardware including T1, E1, ISDN PRI, GR-303, RBS, Loopstart, Groundstart, 
-ISDN BRI and many more. 
- 
-.PP 
-At start, Asterisk reads the /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf main configuration 
-file and locates the rest of the configuration files from the configuration 
-in that file. The \-C option specifies an alternate main configuration file. 
-Virtually all aspects of the operation of asterisk's configuration files 
-can be found in the sample configuration files.  The format for those files 
-is generally beyond the scope of this man page. 
- 
-.PP 
-When running with \fB-c\fR, \fB-r\fR or \fB-R\fR 	options, Asterisk supplies a powerful command line, including command 
-completion, which may be used to monitors its status, perform a variety 
-of administrative actions and even explore the applications that are 
-currently loaded into the system.

- 
-.SH "OPTIONS" 
- 
-.IP "\-B" 10 
-Force the background of the terminal to be black, in order for 
-terminal colors to show up properly. 
- 
-.IP "\-C \fIfile\fR" 10 
-Use \fBfile\fP as master configuration file 
-instead of the default, /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf 
- 
-.IP "\-c" 10 
-Provide a control console on the calling terminal. 
-Specifying this option implies \fB-f\fR and will cause 
-asterisk to no longer fork or detach from the controlling terminal. 
- 
-.IP "\-d" 10 
-Enable extra debugging statements. 
- 
-.IP "" 10 
-Note: This always sets the debug level in the asterisk process, 
-even if it is running in the background. This may affect the size 
-of your log files, if the debug level is specified in logger.conf. 
- 
-.IP "\-e \fImemory\fR" 10 
-Limit the generation of new channels when the amount of free memory has decreased to under \fImemory\fR megabytes. 
- 
-.IP "\-f" 10 
-Do not fork or detach from controlling terminal.  Overrides any preceding specification of \fB-F\fR on the command line. 
- 
-.IP "\-F" 10 
-Always fork and detach from controlling terminal.  Overrides any preceding specification of \fB-f\fR on the command line. 
- 
-.IP "\-g" 10 
-Remove resource limit on core size, thus forcing Asterisk to dump 
-core in the unlikely event of a segmentation fault or abort signal. 
-\fBNOTE:\fR in some cases this may be incompatible 
-with the \fB-U\fR or \fB-G\fR flags. 
- 
-.IP "\-G \fIgroup\fR" 10 
-Run as group \fIgroup\fR instead of the 
-calling group.  \fBNOTE:\fR this requires substantial work 
-to be sure that Asterisk's environment has permission to write 
-the files required for its operation, including logs, its comm 
-socket, the asterisk database, etc. 
- 
-.IP "\-h" 10 
-Provide brief summary of command line arguments and terminate. 
- 
-.IP "\-i" 10 
-Prompt user to intialize any encrypted private keys for IAX2 
-secure authentication during startup. 
- 
-.IP "\-I" 10 
-Enable internal timing if DAHDI timing is available. 
-The default behaviour is that outbound packets are phase locked 
-to inbound packets. Enabling this switch causes them to be 
-locked to the internal DAHDI timer instead. 
- 
-.IP "\-L \fIloadaverage\fR" 10 
-Limits the maximum load average before rejecting new calls.  This can 
-be useful to prevent a system from being brought down by terminating 
-too many simultaneous calls. 
- 
-.IP "\-m" 10 
-Temporarily mutes output to the console and logs.  To return to normal, 
-use \fBlogger mute\fR. 
- 
-.IP "\-M \fIvalue\fR" 10 
-Limits the maximum number of calls to the specified value.  This can 
-be useful to prevent a system from being brought down by terminating 
-too many simultaneous calls. 
- 
-.IP "\-n" 10 
-Disable ANSI colors even on terminals capable of displaying them. 
- 
-.IP "\-p" 10 
-If supported by the operating system (and executing as root), 
-attempt to run with realtime priority for increased performance and 
-responsiveness within the Asterisk process, at the expense of other 
-programs running on the same machine. 
- 
-.IP "" 10 
-Note: \fBastcanary\fR will run concurrently with 
-\fBasterisk\fR. If \fBastcanary\fR stops 
-running or is killed, \fBasterisk\fR will slow down to 
-normal process priority, to avoid locking up the machine. 
- 
-.IP "\-q" 10 
-Reduce default console output when running in conjunction with 
-console mode (\fB-c\fR). 
- 
-.IP "\-r" 10 
-Instead of running a new Asterisk process, attempt to connect 
-to a running Asterisk process and provide a console interface 
-for controlling it. 
- 
-.IP "\-R" 10 
-Much like \fB-r\fR.  Instead of running a new Asterisk process, attempt to connect 
-to a running Asterisk process and provide a console interface 
-for controlling it. Additionally, if connection to the Asterisk  
-process is lost, attempt to reconnect for as long as 30 seconds. 
- 
-.IP "\-s \fIsocket file name\fR" 10 
-In combination with \fB-r\fR, connect directly to a specified 
-Asterisk server socket. 
- 
-.IP "\-t" 10 
-When recording files, write them first into a temporary holding directory,  
-then move them into the final location when done. 
- 
-.IP "\-T" 10 
-Add timestamp to all non-command related output going to the console 
-when running with verbose and/or logging to the console. 
- 
-.IP "\-U \fIuser\fR" 10 
-Run as user \fIuser\fR instead of the 
-calling user.  \fBNOTE:\fR this requires substantial work 
-to be sure that Asterisk's environment has permission to write 
-the files required for its operation, including logs, its comm 
-socket, the asterisk database, etc. 
- 
-.IP "\-v" 10 
-Increase the level of verboseness on the console.  The more times 
-\fB-v\fR is specified, the more verbose the output is. 
-Specifying this option implies \fB-f\fR and will cause 
-asterisk to no longer fork or detach from the controlling terminal. 
-This option may also be used in conjunction with \fB-r\fR 			and \fB-R\fR. 
- 
-.IP "" 10 
-Note: This always sets the verbose level in the asterisk process, 
-even if it is running in the background. This will affect the size 
-of your log files. 
- 
-.IP "\-V" 10 
-Display version information and exit immediately. 
- 
-.IP "\-W" 10 
-Display colored terminal text as if the background were white 
-or otherwise light in color.  Normally, terminal text is displayed 
-as if the background were black or otherwise dark in color. 
- 
-.IP "\-x \fIcommand\fR" 10 
-Connect to a running Asterisk process and execute a command on 
-a command line, passing any output through to standard out and 
-then terminating when the command execution completes.  Implies 
-\fB-r\fR when \fB-R\fR is not explicitly 
-supplied. 
- 
-.IP "\-X" 10 
-Enables executing of includes via \fB#exec\fR directive.

-.SH "OPTIONS" 
- 
-.PP 
-Running Asterisk starts the asterisk daemon (optionally running it 
-in the foreground). However running it with \fB-r\fP or 
-\fB-R\fP connects to an existing Asterisk instance through 
-a remote console. 
- 
-.IP "\-B" 10 
-Force the background of the terminal to be black, in order for 
-terminal colors to show up properly. Equivalent to 
-\fBforceblackbackground = yes\fP in 
-\fBasterisk.conf\fP. See also 
-\fB-n\fP and \fB-W\fP. 
- 
-.IP "\-C \fIfile\fR" 10 
-Use \fBfile\fP as master configuration file 
-instead of the default, /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf 
- 
-.IP "\-c" 10 
-Provide a control console on the calling terminal. The 
-console is similar to the remote console provided by 
-\fB-r\fP. Specifying this option implies  
-\fB-f\fR and will cause asterisk to no longer  
-fork or detach from the controlling terminal. Equivalent  
-to \fBconsole = yes\fP in \fBasterisk.conf\fP. 
- 
-.IP "\-d" 10 
-Enable extra debugging statements. This parameter may be used several 
-times, and each increases the debug level.  Equivalent to \fBdebug = \fInum\fR\fP       in \fBasterisk.conf\fP to explicitly set the initian debug 
-level to \fInum\fR. When given at startup, this 
-option also implies \fB-f\fP (no forking). However when 
-connecting to an existing Asterisk instance (\fB-r\fP or 
-\fB-R\fP), it may only increase the debug level. 
- 
-.IP "\-e \fImemory\fR" 10 
-Limit the generation of new channels when the amount of free memory  
-has decreased to under \fImemory\fR megabytes. 
-Equivalent to \fBminmemfree = \fImemory\fR\fP in 
-\fBasterisk.conf\fP. 
- 
-.IP "\-f" 10 
-Do not fork or detach from controlling terminal.  Overrides any 
-preceding specification of \fB-F\fR on the command line. 
-Equivalent to \fBnofork = yes\fP in \fBasterisk.conf\fP. 
-See also \fB-c\fP. 
- 
-.IP "\-F" 10 
-Always fork and detach from controlling terminal.  Overrides any 
-preceding specification of \fB-f\fR on the command line. 
-May also be used to prevent \fB-d\fP and \fB-v\fP to imply 
-no forking. Equivalent to \fBalwaysfork = yes\fP in \fBasterisk.conf\fP.

+Enable extra debugging statements.
+
+Note: This always sets the debug level in the asterisk process,
+even if it is running in the background. This may affect the size
+of your log files, if the debug level is specified in logger.conf.
+.TP 
+-e \fImemory\fR
+Limit the generation of new channels when the amount of free memory has decreased to under \fImemory\fR megabytes.
+.TP 
+-f
+Do not fork or detach from controlling terminal. Overrides any preceding specification of \fB-F\fR on the command line.
+.TP 
+-F
+Always fork and detach from controlling terminal. Overrides any preceding specification of \fB-f\fR on the command line.
+.TP 
+-g
+Remove resource limit on core size, thus forcing Asterisk to dump
+core in the unlikely event of a segmentation fault or abort signal.
+\fBNOTE:\fR in some cases this may be incompatible
+with the \fB-U\fR or \fB-G\fR flags.
+.TP 
+-G \fIgroup\fR
+Run as group \fIgroup\fR instead of the
+calling group. \fBNOTE:\fR this requires substantial work
+to be sure that Asterisk's environment has permission to write
+the files required for its operation, including logs, its comm
+socket, the asterisk database, etc.
+.TP 
+-h
+Provide brief summary of command line arguments and terminate.
+.TP 
+-i
+Prompt user to intialize any encrypted private keys for IAX2
+secure authentication during startup.
+.TP 
+-I
+Enable internal timing if DAHDI timing is available.
+The default behaviour is that outbound packets are phase locked
+to inbound packets. Enabling this switch causes them to be
+locked to the internal DAHDI timer instead.
+.TP 
+-L \fIloadaverage\fR
+Limits the maximum load average before rejecting new calls. This can
+be useful to prevent a system from being brought down by terminating
+too many simultaneous calls.
+.TP 
+-m
+Temporarily mutes output to the console and logs. To return to normal,
+use \fBlogger mute\fR.
+.TP 
+-M \fIvalue\fR
+Limits the maximum number of calls to the specified value. This can
+be useful to prevent a system from being brought down by terminating
+too many simultaneous calls.
+.TP 
+-n
+Disable ANSI colors even on terminals capable of displaying them.
+.TP 
+-p
+If supported by the operating system (and executing as root),
+attempt to run with realtime priority for increased performance and
+responsiveness within the Asterisk process, at the expense of other
+programs running on the same machine.
+
+Note: \fBastcanary\fR will run concurrently with
+\fBasterisk\fR. If \fBastcanary\fR stops
+running or is killed, \fBasterisk\fR will slow down to
+normal process priority, to avoid locking up the machine.
+.TP 
+-q
+Reduce default console output when running in conjunction with
+console mode (\fB-c\fR).
+.TP 
+-r
+Instead of running a new Asterisk process, attempt to connect
+to a running Asterisk process and provide a console interface
+for controlling it.
+.TP 
+-R
+Much like \fB-r\fR. Instead of running a new Asterisk process, attempt to connect
+to a running Asterisk process and provide a console interface
+for controlling it. Additionally, if connection to the Asterisk 
+process is lost, attempt to reconnect for as long as 30 seconds.
+.TP 
+-s \fIsocket file name\fR
+In combination with \fB-r\fR, connect directly to a specified
+Asterisk server socket.
+.TP 
+-t
+When recording files, write them first into a temporary holding directory, 
+then move them into the final location when done.
+.TP 
+-T
+Add timestamp to all non-command related output going to the console
+when running with verbose and/or logging to the console.
+.TP 
+-U \fIuser\fR
+Run as user \fIuser\fR instead of the
+calling user. \fBNOTE:\fR this requires substantial work
+to be sure that Asterisk's environment has permission to write
+the files required for its operation, including logs, its comm
+socket, the asterisk database, etc.
+.TP 
+-v
+Increase the level of verboseness on the console. The more times
+\fB-v\fR is specified, the more verbose the output is.
+Specifying this option implies \fB-f\fR and will cause
+asterisk to no longer fork or detach from the controlling terminal.
+This option may also be used in conjunction with \fB-r\fR
+and \fB-R\fR.
+
+Note: This always sets the verbose level in the asterisk process,
+even if it is running in the background. This will affect the size
+of your log files.
+.TP 
+-V
+Display version information and exit immediately.
+.TP 
+-W
+Display colored terminal text as if the background were white
+or otherwise light in color. Normally, terminal text is displayed
+as if the background were black or otherwise dark in color.
+.TP 
+-x \fIcommand\fR
+Connect to a running Asterisk process and execute a command on
+a command line, passing any output through to standard out and
+then terminating when the command execution completes. Implies
+\fB-r\fR when \fB-R\fR is not explicitly

-  <title>DESCRIPTION</title>
-  <para>
-   <command>asterisk</command> is a full-featured telephony server which
-   provides Private Branch eXchange (PBX), Interactive Voice Response (IVR),
-   Automated Call Distribution (ACD), Voice over IP (VoIP) gatewaying, 
-   Conferencing, and a plethora of other telephony applications to a broad
-   range of telephony devices including packet voice (SIP, IAX2, MGCP, Skinny,
-   H.323, Unistim) devices (both endpoints and proxies), as well as traditional TDM
-   hardware including T1, E1, ISDN PRI, GR-303, RBS, Loopstart, Groundstart,
-   ISDN BRI and many more.
-  </para>
-  <para>
-   At start, Asterisk reads the /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf main configuration
-   file and locates the rest of the configuration files from the configuration
-   in that file. The -C option specifies an alternate main configuration file.
-   Virtually all aspects of the operation of asterisk's configuration files
-   can be found in the sample configuration files.  The format for those files
-   is generally beyond the scope of this man page.
-  </para>
-  <para>
-   When running with <command>-c</command>, <command>-r</command> or <command>-R</command>
-   options, Asterisk supplies a powerful command line, including command
-   completion, which may be used to monitors its status, perform a variety
-   of administrative actions and even explore the applications that are
-   currently loaded into the system.
-  </para>

-  <title>OPTIONS</title>
-  <para>
-   Running Asterisk starts the asterisk daemon (optionally running it
-   in the foreground). However running it with <option>-r</option> or
-   <option>-R</option> connects to an existing Asterisk instance through
-   a remote console.
-  </para>
-  <variablelist>

-    <term>-B</term>
-    <listitem>
-     <para>
-      Force the background of the terminal to be black, in order for
-      terminal colors to show up properly. Equivalent to
-      <option>forceblackbackground = yes</option> in

-     <para>
-      Provide a control console on the calling terminal. The

-      <option>-r</option>. Specifying this option implies 
-      <command>-f</command> and will cause asterisk to no longer

-    <listitem>
-     <para>
-      Enable extra debugging statements. This parameter may be used several
-      times, and each increases the debug level.  Equivalent to <option>debug = <replaceable>num</replaceable></option>
-      in <filename>asterisk.conf</filename> to explicitly set the initian debug
-      level to <replaceable>num</replaceable>. When given at startup, this
-      option also implies <option>-f</option> (no forking). However when
-      connecting to an existing Asterisk instance (<option>-r</option> or
-      <option>-R</option>), it may only increase the debug level.
