My project, Sipient, is dedicated to
the development of cost effective tools that provide insight into the
behavior of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and IP Multimedia Subsystems (IMS) networks. I
currently offer two products which may be used to monitor SIP and Diameter traffic,
SIPFlow Standard and Distributed SIPFlow.
The standard version of SIPFlow captures SIP and Diameter traffic on one or more Network Interface Cards (NICs) and displays the call flows in a graphical format. It allows filtering and supports the ability to import Ethereal or tcpdump files.
Distributed SIPFlow interfaces with SIPSniffers running
on remote hosts and displays the SIP and Diameter call flows as reported by those sniffers. Each
Distributed SIPFlow Console can connect to one or more SIPSniffer. Distributed SIPFlow not only shows the callflows
as they are captured by SIPSniffers, but
can also send notifications when SIP error messages are detected.
