Sip Audio Session
Updated 89 Days AgoPublic

This script can be used for interactive audio session or for scripting alarms. The script returns appropriate shell response codes for failed or successful sessions. The script can be setup to auto answer and auto hangup after predefined number of seconds, detects SIP negative response codes, missing ACK and the lack of RTP media after a session has been established. Once the media stream is connected, the outcome of the ICE negotiation and the selected RTP candidates are displayed.

This script is available in the Sip Clients package which must be installed separately from the SIP SIMPLE client SDK package.
adigeo@ag-blink:~$sip-audio-session -h
Usage: sip-audio-session [options] [user@domain]

This script can sit idle waiting for an incoming audio session, or initiate an
outgoing audio session to a SIP address. The program will close the session
and quit when Ctrl+D is pressed.

Options:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -a NAME, --account=NAME
                        The account name to use for any outgoing traffic. If
                        not supplied, the default account will be used.
  -c FILE, --config-file=FILE
                        The path to a configuration file to use. This
                        overrides the default location of the configuration
                        file.
  -s, --trace-sip       Dump the raw contents of incoming and outgoing SIP
                        messages.
  -j, --trace-pjsip     Print PJSIP logging output.
  -n, --trace-notifications
                        Print all notifications (disabled by default).
  -S, --disable-sound   Disables initializing the sound card.
  --auto-answer         Interval after which to answer an incoming session
                        (disabled by default). If the option is specified but
                        the interval is not, it defaults to 0 (accept the
                        session as soon as it starts ringing).
  --auto-hangup         Interval after which to hang up an established session
                        (disabled by default). If the option is specified but
                        the interval is not, it defaults to 0 (hangup the
                        session as soon as it connects).
  -b, --batch           Run the program in batch mode: reading input from the
                        console is disabled and the option --auto-answer is
                        implied. This is particularly useful when running this
                        script in a non-interactive environment.
  -D, --daemonize       Enable running this program as a deamon. This option
                        implies --disable-sound, --auto-answer and --batch.

Alarm System

sip-audio-session script can be used for end-to-end testing of a SIP service including the RTP media path. The following failures can be detected:

  • Timeout
  • Negative response code
  • Lack of RTP media after the SIP session has been established
  • Missing ACK

To setup the alarm system start periodically a caller script from a monitoring software using the following arguments:

sip-audio-session --auto-hangup user@domain

Where the user@domain has been configured as the SIP account of the listener, can be an answering machine on the PSTN network. The caller script hangs up after each call. The shell return code can be used to determine if the session setup has failed.

To receive calls and answer them automatically you can also use sip_audio_session script as follows:

sip-audio-session --daemonize

You must run the script as user root. The --daemonize option puts the client in the background and the logging goes to /var/log/syslog. The program saves its pid file to /var/run/sip_audio_session.pid.
