    Does anyone use a software to monitor RTP ? I'd like to monitor the QoS applied on RTP and also mesure jitter, latency, etc...

    Thank you

    I don't have software that will monitor in real time, but it is possible to do a speedtest to check the characteristics with VoIP. This is one that I have used: http://www.telappliant.com/speedtest The results are fairly comprehensive and I have found that they are a reasonable guide that can be trusted.

    Also, wireshark can be helpful in looking at jitter but does not give a complete analysis.

    Kind regards

    Wireshark is the industry standard professional tool.

    This is a new service that does hosted VOIP monitoring. Might be worth looking into (haven't use them myself):

    Thank you for the replies.

    I know Wireshark, but I'd like to find a similar software that is more VOIP oriented.

    I might try CACE pilot (wireshark add-on) http://www.cacetech.com/products/cace_pilot.html
    It seems to include some VOIP tools.

    I have played with VQManger in the past. There is a free version as well.
