We are thinking of doing a dns_prefetch module using this.
The sip-router.cfg will look like:
# end of script
# continue normal processing
# the uri was resolved and is in the dns cache
However don't expect something quickly as everybody is quite busy and we
would still need to write a dns resolver process pool (time consuming).
Note that this is not the "final" async. solution since it's not
transparent for the script writer (scripts would have to be written in a
special way), works only with tm and it's also a little inefficient for
In the long term we will have completely transparent async. support for dns
and maybe db lookups (though it's controversial if we really need it for
normal db lookups). This will take much longer and will require among
other things reviewing all the global variable use (most of the global
variables will either need to be registered or allocated in some known
If Miklos doesn't beat me to it, I'll probably start working on it only
after the core merging is complete.

Yes for DNS (see above) and in general for any route-level async processing
involving tm (e.g. lookup some part of the message in a slow DB and
execute automatically another route when the DB responds).
It cannot be used for TCP/TLS, but it's not needed anyway. In ser TCP
connection setup and TCP send is already asynchronous, at least if
you have tcp_buf_write=yes in ser.cfg (I agree it's not a very well
chosen name :-)). TLS does not support it yet, so if you use TLS
you should not set this option (that's why it's not yet the default).
TLS support for it requires non-trivial changes in the tcp core and it
will probably come after the merge (it's started already but far from
(BTW: most of the core new options documentation in ser can be found
