Smokeping::probes::SipSak - tests sip server
This probe sends OPTIONS messages to a sip server testing the latency.
*** 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
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.
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
