Hello everyone... i am thinking of possibility to send sms thru a specific device. I intend to use this in loading credits in a particular SIM.

I know this can be done using assigned QUEUE name for that device but this will result restarting the smsd daemon that surely interrupt constant receiving and sending of loads of messages. I dont want to this because originally a particular device is a member of a QUEUE with a lots of devices attached to it.

Thank you very much for you support

Let me guess... You have a setup with several pre-paid SIM cards and with one post-paid SIM card. With post-paid SIM card you can send SMS to the service number and this SMS contains amount of credit and number which will get this credit. After loading is done, pre-paid SIM can continue sending and post-paid SIM will receive a bill later. Is this even close? :)

After possible change of a configuration, you cannot restart smsd once? Even when restarting takes not very much time? You did not mean that restarting is required every time when credits are loaded? (because it's not).

You have many devices to serve one queue, right? For this specific device you could create an additional queue which is only served by this specific device and it is serving additional queue first. So all of your modems will serve main queue and as soon as credit loading is required, specific device will do it.

It will help if you show your configuration file here. Also you could tell something about message counts. If you do not want that all members and quests will see your setup, put it between private tags. Private block is only shown to the topic owner (you) and administrators (me, currently no more than me :)).

What is the version of smsd you are using? If you are running very heavy load with large number of modems, you might need some special features which are not included all releases.

Thank you very much Keke for your time and your assistance.

I got to the buttom of my concern thru you help.. its so dumb of me not to wittingly notice that the configuration name QUEUES in the modem configuration is in plural form, meaning I can put up more than one queue for each modem.

Thanks again.

Given the number of our modems installed and the continues increasing of number of messages to send, restarting of the smsd would some time take 15 seconds, specially when sending multi-part sms. This 15 seconds of no sending and receiving has a huge effect in the operation of my setup.

Keke, I also have a working webbased administration of smsservertools. Creation of devices, queues, management of prefixes according to provider are already in place in the admin site. Also, admin can send test messages according to devices, which happened to work thru your assistance.

It was written in cakePHP and Postgresql.

If you and the community will be interested, i am very much willing to share the code. Let this be my contribution to our accommodating and very supportive community .

More power!!!

That would be great! 8) Please create a new topic under Sample scripts / setups forum. Use code tags to publish file contents.
