IAXtel update

Russell has posted information about IAXtel coming back. They've managed to get the server to drop from almost 100% CPU to 4% CPU:

Hello Everyone!

Over this weekend, we have updated IAXtel. Before the update, it was running at almost 100% cpu load at an idle state because of the massive amount of database transactions.

We enabled realtime caching and the box immediately crashed. We were able to expose a serious bug related to realtime caching in chan_iax2. Kevin Fleming was able to fix this issue, and also added some experimental code to further enhance performace.

As I write this message, Asterisk is using about 4 percent CPU load on IAXtel. We are hoping that it will become usable again.
