I plan to use 2 modems connected to one server. How should the smsd.conf look like?

GSM1 should be prio1 and GSM2 only if GSM1 fails.

If GSM1 send files into /failed/ folder i should be picked up by GSM2.


Is it a way of solving this or in some other way?

Failover device configuration needs queues and eventhandler script:

Smsd.conf global section:

eventhandler = /usr/local/bin/smsd_eventhandler

[queues]
GSM1 = /var/spool/sms/GSM1
GSM2 = /var/spool/sms/GSM2

[providers]
GSM1 = 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,s
GSM2 = 0

Smsd.conf modem sections:

[GSM1]
queues = GSM1

[GSM2]
queues = GSM2

With this kind of configuration GSM1 is used to send all messages (which are not specifically targeted to GSM2).

When sending fails, eventhandler script is called with "FAILED" as a first argument. Eventhandler code can check if a message was not already tried to send using GSM2, and if it was not, message can be moved back to the spooler with Queue: GSM2 header.

For example:
#!/bin/bash

if [ "$1" = "FAILED" ]; then

  # Check if there was Queue defined:
  queue=`formail -zx Queue: < $2`

  if [ "x$queue" != "xGSM2" ]; then

    # Was not already handled using GSM2.

    # Create a new message file:
    FILE=`mktemp /tmp/send_XXXXXX`

    # Copy a message and insert a Queue: header:
    formail -f -I "Queue: GSM2" < $2 > $FILE

    # Move message back to the spooler:
    FILE2=`mktemp /var/spool/sms/outgoing/send_XXXXXX`
    mv $FILE $FILE2

  fi
fi

To use this example, the formail command is required. If your system does not have it, install the procmail package. You can also write the eventhandler in any other language you want.

Thanks for the answer. cannot get it to work though. Seems like the send_xyz files not movs to queue GSM2. Any ideas about that?

Sorry it works if send_xyz is forwarded to folder /var/spool/sms/failed . But if I remove GSM1 modem so only GSM2 is online the send_xyz stays in folder /var/spool/sms/GSM1 and it will not be handled by queue GSM2.

Is it a way of solving this?

Kind regards.

I can see what's happening now.

If GSM1 lost network connection and while that happens sending an sms. The following happens:

The first sms is correctly sent by GSM2 as the eventhandler should but then the modem disconnects.

2020-11-19 22:23:16,2, smsd: Modem handler 0 (GSM1) terminated while mainprocess is still running. Exited, status 127.

After that every sms is stuck in the GSM1 queue.


Can I in some way check for the string 2020-11-19 22:23:16,2, smsd: Modem handler 0 (GSM1) terminated while mainprocess is still running. Exited, status 127.


and force restart of smsd in the eventhandler?
