Chapter 1. Admin Guide

1. Overview

This is a module which provides a FIFO transport layer implementation for Management Interface.

2. FIFO command syntax

The external commands issued via FIFO interface must follow the following syntax:

  • request = first_line argument*

  • first_line = ':'command_name':'reply_fifo'\n'

  • argument = (arg_name '::' (arg_value)? ) | (arg_value)

  • arg_name = not-quoted_string

  • arg_value = not-quoted_string | '"' string '"'

  • not-quoted_string = string - {',",\n,\r}

3. Dependencies

3.1. Kamailio Modules

The following modules must be loaded before this module:

  • No dependencies on other Kamailio modules.

3.2. External Libraries or Applications

The following libraries or applications must be installed before running Kamailio with this module loaded:

  • none

4. Exported Parameters

4.1. fifo_name (string)

The name of the FIFO file to be created for listening and reading external commands.

Default value is NONE.

Example 1.1. Set fifo_name parameter

modparam("mi_fifo", "fifo_name", "/tmp/openser_fifo")

4.2. fifo_mode (integer)

Permission to be used for creating the listening FIFO file. It follows the UNIX conventions.

Default value is 0660 (rw-rw----).

Example 1.2. Set fifo_mode parameter

modparam("mi_fifo", "fifo_mode", 0600)

4.3. fifo_group (integer) fifo_group (string)

Group to be used for creating the listening FIFO file.

Default value is the inherited one.

Example 1.3. Set fifo_group parameter

modparam("mi_fifo", "fifo_group", 0)
modparam("mi_fifo", "fifo_group", "root")

4.4. fifo_user (integer) fifo_group (string)

User to be used for creating the listening FIFO file.

Default value is the inherited one.

Example 1.4. Set fifo_user parameter

modparam("mi_fifo", "fifo_user", 0)
modparam("mi_fifo", "fifo_user", "root")

4.5. reply_dir (string)

Directory to be used for creating the reply FIFO files.

Default value is “/tmp/

Example 1.5. Set reply_dir parameter

modparam("mi_fifo", "reply_dir", "/home/kamailio/tmp/")

4.6. reply_indent (string)

Strings to be used for line indentation. As the MI data structure is tree oriendeted, the depth level will printed as indentation.

Default value is “"\t" (TAB)”.

Example 1.6. Set reply_indent parameter

modparam("mi_fifo", "reply_indent", "    ")

5. Exported Functions

No function exported to be used from configuration file.

6. Example

This is an example showing the FIFO format for the “get_statistics dialog: tm:” MI commad: response.

Example 1.7. FIFO request
