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

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:
The location of your echoping binary.
Default value: /usr/bin/sipsak
Run this many concurrent processes at maximum
Example value: 5
Default value: 5
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 acquisition is initiated. (This variable is only applicable if the variable 'concurrentprobes' is set in the 'General' section.)
Example value: 50%
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
How long a single 'ping' takes at maximum
Example value: 15
Default value: 5
Supported target-specific variables:
This is a tag that will be sent to influxdb and has no impact on the probe measurement. The tag name will be sent without the "influx_" prefix, which will be replaced with "tag_" instead. Tags can be used for filtering.
Example value: influx_location = In the basement
If OPTIONS is actually implemented by the server, SipSak will receive two responses. If this option is set, the timing from the second, final response will be counter
Example value: yes
additional sipsak options. The options will get split on space.
Example value: --numeric --password=mysecret
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
usa non-default port for the sip connection.
Example value: 5061
Timeout for sipsak in seconds (fractional)
Default value: 2
User to use for sip connection.
Example value: nobody
