Available options:
*** Scenario file options:

-oocsf : Load out-of-call scenario.
-oocsn : Load out-of-call scenario.
-sn : Use a default scenario (embedded in the SIPp executable). If this option is omitted, the Standard SipStone UAC scenario is loaded. Available values in this version:

Signal handling:
SIPp can be controlled using POSIX signals. The following signals are handled: USR1: Similar to pressing the ’q’ key. It triggers a soft exit
of SIPp. No more new calls are placed and all ongoing calls are finished before SIPp exits. Example: kill -SIGUSR1 732
USR2: Triggers a dump of all statistics screens in
<scenario_name>_<pid>_screens.log file. Especially useful in background mode to know what the current status is. Example: kill -SIGUSR2 732
Exit codes:
Upon exit (on fatal error or when the number of asked calls (-m option) is reached, SIPp exits with one of the following exit code:
0: All calls were successful 1: At least one call failed
97: Exit on internal command. Calls may have been processed 99: Normal exit without calls processed -1: Fatal error -2: Fatal error binding a socket

  they get rotated?
-max_log_size

Signal handling:
SIPp can be controlled using POSIX signals. The following signals are handled: USR1: Similar to pressing the ’q’ key. It triggers a soft exit
of SIPp. No more new calls are placed and all ongoing calls are finished before SIPp exits. Example: kill -SIGUSR1 732
USR2: Triggers a dump of all statistics screens in
<scenario_name>_<pid>_screens.log file. Especially useful in background mode to know what the current status is. Example: kill -SIGUSR2 732
Exit codes:
Upon exit (on fatal error or when the number of asked calls (-m option) is reached, SIPp exits with one of the following exit code:
0: All calls were successful 1: At least one call failed
97: Exit on internal command. Calls may have been processed 99: Normal exit without calls processed -1: Fatal error -2: Fatal error binding a socket
