SIPp is a free Open Source test tool / traffic generator for the SIP protocol.
It includes a few basic SipStone user agent scenarios (UAC and UAS) and 
establishes and releases multiple calls with the INVITE and BYE methods. It 
can also reads custom XML scenario files describing from very simple to 
complex call flows. It features the dynamic display of statistics about 
running tests (call rate, round trip delay, and message statistics), periodic 
CSV statistics dumps, TCP and UDP over multiple sockets or multiplexed with 
retransmission management and dynamically adjustable call rates.

Comment 1 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-11-16 18:25:50 UTC
First of all, the RPM that you supplied needs to BR ncurses-devel or it won't
build in mock.  Second, is there are reason that you didn't package 1.1rc6? 
Version 1.0 is quite old and it looks like there is quite a long time between
1.1rc releases - almost six months between rc5 and rc6.  I don't follow sipp
development so I don't know why it's taking them so long to make a non-"rc" release.

Comment 2 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-11-22 16:25:27 UTC
Any updates?

Comment 3 Peter Lemenkov 2006-11-22 19:12:37 UTC
Yes, there are some.
First, I updated packate to version 1.1rc6. So far I faced the "correct
numbering" problem - 1.1rc6 isn't a correct name. Should we name it in some
different manner, for example 1.1-0.rc6.1?

Another one thing worth to mention is a clause in LICENSE.txt. Looks like some
part of package distributed covered by different license (BSD variant?).

I added another two BR: openssl-devel and libpcap-devel (they're significantly
increase functionality, for example digest authentication in scenarios).

Another one add-on is patch which fixes this package's buildscripts.


Comment 4 Peter Lemenkov 2006-12-21 21:04:14 UTC
Version 1.1.rc8


changed naming scheme.

Comment 5 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2007-01-05 05:16:56 UTC
Peter, sorry it's taken so long to do this review:

* source files match upstream
94bddbc6def599ed59c87fdd9edf5486  sipp-1.1rc8.src.tar.gz
94bddbc6def599ed59c87fdd9edf5486  sipp-1.1rc8.src.tar.gz.1
* package meets naming and packaging guidelines (except as noted below).
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is correct.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  License text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
X compiler flags are not appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (fc6 i386).
* package installs properly. 
* rpmlint is silent:
* %check is not present; There is no test code in the districution.
* no shared libraries are present
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers
* no unversioned .so file
* no pkconfig file
* no libtool .la droppings.


* Package README.txt, MEDIA.txt, and the contents of the pcap
  directory as %doc.


* The code is not built using the standard compiler flags.  Modifying
  the build section to look like this will build the package with the
  proper flags:

DEBUG_FLAGS="%{optflags}" %{__make} %{?_smp_mflags} pcapplay_ossl

  The compile produces a lot of warning flags, but it completes and
  produces an executable.

  However, once I compiled sipp with the standard compiler flags the
  buffer overflow checking code is triggered when I run the following
  commands in separate windows (as a non-root user):

sipp -sn uac -i
sipp -sn uas -i

  That seems very bad to me... probably something to diecuss with the
  upstream authors.

I packaged pcap and its contents in %{_datadir}.

Comment 7 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2007-06-02 02:56:05 UTC
Peter, thanks for hanging in with me.  Ok, it's looking good, except for
/usr/share/sipp is not owned anymore.  Fix that up before you import and this
package is APPROVED.

CVS done, except that I can't quite understand why you'd want to be in initialcc
if you're the owner so I left that field blank.
