Hello to all,

Couple weeks ago, the new sipcapture module was contributed to OpenSIPS.

The Sipcapture module allows OpenSIPS to operate as a robust and scalable SIP sampling/capture server 
with native support for HEPv1/v2, IPIP Encapsulation protocols and switch mirroring/monitoring port 
OpenSIPS can operate either as Capture Agent (siptrace module, HEP mode) sampling and forwarding 
packets or as Capture Node (sipcapture module) collecting, indexing and storing SIP packets as received  
from the available Capture Agents (HEP), Acme SBCs (IPIP) or directly from the ethernet wire.

Capture Agents can be distributed in a modular fashion, allowing support for any network topology.
In addition to the integrated sampling and capturing functions in OpenSIPS, a stand-alone capture 
agent (captagent) is provided enabling HEP encapsulation for unsupported systems and soft-switches.
OpenSER/Kamailio and FreeSWITCH users already enjoy integrated HEP mirroring functionality.

A powerful web application is provided (webhomer) to search, filter and sort the results by each 
SIP standard field and for any date/time range, export PCAPs, visualize call flows and statistics and more.
Webhomer has full multi-user support, corporate ready with LDAP/Radius authentication, a REST API  
and can be deployed separately from the capture core and provide remote access to the database.
