VoIPmonitor is open source network packet sniffer for SIP and RTP VoIP protocol running on linux or any posix unix. VoIPmonitor was designed to analyze quality of VoIP call based on network parameters - delay variation and packet loss according to ITU-T G.107 E-model which predicts quality on MOS scale. Calls with all relevant statistics are saved to MySQL or ODBC database. Optionaly each call can be saved to pcap file with either only SIP protocol or SIP/RTP/RTCP protocols.
VoIPmonitor can also decode speech and play it over the commercial WEB GUI or save it to disk as WAV. Supported codecs are G.711 alaw/ulaw and commercial plugins supports G.729a/G.723/iLBC/Speex/GSM. VoIPmonitor uses jitterbuffer simulator to keep both direction of call synchronized.
For who is VoIPmonitor
- monitor and troubleshoot quality of VoIP calls and keep informed by alets
- archive all SIP or/and RTP signalization
- track and archive all calls and save CDR records to database
- record and listen to calls
- for billing purpose
How VoIPmonitor scales
VoIPmonitor from version 4 is able to handle thousand of simultaneouse calls. It uses two threads - one reading packets from ethernet and buffering it to queue. Second thread is reading from this queue and process packets. This method allows to cover CPU or I/O peaks.
