NAME

       Smokeping::probes::SipSak - tests sip server

OVERVIEW

       This probe sends OPTIONS messages to a sip server testing the latency.

SYNOPSIS

        *** Probes ***

        +SipSak

        binary = /usr/bin/sipsak
        forks = 5
        offset = 50%
        step = 300
        timeout = 15

        # The following variables can be overridden in each target section
        params = --numeric --password=mysecret
        pings = 5
        port = 5061
        user = nobody

        # [...]

        *** Targets ***

        probe = SipSak # if this should be the default probe

        # [...]

        + mytarget
        # probe = SipSak # if the default probe is something else
        host = my.host
        params = --numeric --password=mysecret
        pings = 5
        port = 5061
        user = nobody

DESCRIPTION

       The probe uses the sipsak <http://sipsak.org/> tool to measure sip server latency by
       sending an OPTIONS message.

       The sipsak command supports a large number of additional parameters to fine-tune its
       operation. Use the params variable to configure them.

VARIABLES

       Supported probe-specific variables:

       binary
           The location of your echoping binary.

           Default value: /usr/bin/sipsak

       forks
           Run this many concurrent processes at maximum

           Example value: 5

           Default value: 5

       offset
           If you run many probes concurrently you may want to prevent them from hitting your
           network all at the same time. Using the probe-specific offset parameter you can change
           the point in time when each probe will be run. Offset is specified in % of total
           interval, or alternatively as 'random', and the offset from the 'General' section is
           used if nothing is specified here. Note that this does NOT influence the rrds itself,
           it is just a matter of when data acqusition is initiated.  (This variable is only
           applicable if the variable 'concurrentprobes' is set in the 'General' section.)

           Example value: 50%

       step
           Duration of the base interval that this probe should use, if different from the one
           specified in the 'Database' section. Note that the step in the RRD files is fixed when
           they are originally generated, and if you change the step parameter afterwards, you'll
           have to delete the old RRD files or somehow convert them. (This variable is only
           applicable if the variable 'concurrentprobes' is set in the 'General' section.)

           Example value: 300

       timeout
           How long a single 'ping' takes at maximum

           Example value: 15

           Default value: 5

       Supported target-specific variables:

       params
           additional sipsak options. The options will get split on space.

           Example value: --numeric --password=mysecret

       pings
           How many pings should be sent to each target, if different from the global value
           specified in the Database section. Note that the number of pings in the RRD files is
           fixed when they are originally generated, and if you change this parameter afterwards,
           you'll have to delete the old RRD files or somehow convert them.

           Example value: 5

       port
           usa non-default port for the sip connection.

           Example value: 5061

       user
           User to use for sip connection.

           Example value: nobody
