Retransmission messages in Kerio Operator Warning log

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

A Kerio Operator customer was experiencing dropped calls. He noticed lines similar to this in the Operator Warning log and wondered if they were related to the dropped calls issue.

[30/May/2015 15:02:01] asterisk[2388]: WARNING[2468]: chan_sip.c:3841 in retrans_pkt: Retransmission timeout reached on transmission [email protected] for seqno 119 (Non-critical Request) -- See https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/SIP+Retransmissions#012Packet timed out after 31999ms with no response

Kerio Support explained what the entry means:

The warning log line is not really related to SIP registrations. In SIP all communication is confirmed by ACK messages.

What the warning actually means is that Operator send a SIP message (INVITE, REGISTER,...) but didn't receive a confirmation. All SIP messages are automatically re-sent after 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 seconds. When no confirmation arrives in 32 seconds, the referred warning line is logged. As a result, Operator might not have successfully registered, call may have not been terminated/initiated, etc.
