VoIP monitor

VoIPmonitor is an Open Source network packet sniffer with a commercial front end for SIP, SKINNY, RTP, and RTCP VoIP protocols running on Linux. VoIPmonitor is designed to analyze the quality of VoIP calls based on network parameters, delay variation, and packet loss according to the ITU-T G.107 E-model, which predicts quality on MOS scale. Calls with all relevant statistics are saved to the MySQL or ODBC database. Optionally, each call can be saved to a pcap file with only SIP/SKINNY protocol or SIP/RTP/RTCP/T.38/udptl protocols. VoIPmonitor can also decode audio.
