So I am a newbie to Asterisk. I have worked with a couple of free PBX system in the past, but when it comes to Asterisk my knowledge is limited. I am setting up a test bed to attempt to quantify the number of calls our PBX system can handle over a SIP trunk.
So I have established my trunk between PBX_A and PBX_B
PBX_A ----SIP TRUNK---- PBX_B
testI> sip show peers
Name/username Host Dyn Forcerport Comedia ACL Port Status Description
PBX_A 188.8.131.52 Auto (No) No 5060 OK (1 ms)
PBX_B 184.108.40.206 Auto (No) No 5060 OK (1 ms)
I have another box in the same LAN that I would then like to simulate about 1000 calls. In the past I would have used iperf to do this. But from my understanding iperf only measure the traffic it generates. I was leaning towards using sipp to generate traffic between PBX_A and PBX_B then monitor this with iptraf. Would this be an acceptable test to give me the data I need?
