After 2 days of having the server up and running, I had over 2G of log files. So I decided to use fail2ban to limit these unauthorized accesses. Fortunately fail2ban already contains a configuration for FreeSWITCH. The bbb-install.sh script installs FreeSWITCH in
/opt/freeswitch, but fail2ban from the Ubuntu repositories is configured to look in
/var/log/freeswitch.log. This can be fixed by the following configuration in the file
[freeswitch] enabled = true # use freeswitch installed by bbb-install.sh logpath = /opt/freeswitch/log/freeswitch.log # we do not want mail, so remove that action from standard jail.conf freeswitch config action = %(banaction)s[name=%(__name__)s-tcp, port="%(port)s", protocol="tcp", chain="%(chain)s", actname=%(banaction)s-tcp] %(banaction)s[name=%(__name__)s-udp, port="%(port)s", protocol="udp", chain="%(chain)s", actname=%(banaction)s-udp]
The change lead to lower CPU usage, disk throughput and less IOPS, due to the lower amount of writes to the log file. Also the log file is now much smaller and it is now actually usable to find any real errors. You can see the changes in the picture below. Fail2ban was installed and configured at about 07:30.
