Overview This module implements traffic limiting for SIP requests. The module defines in an abstract mode the notion of 'pipe', which can be a link to an IP address, to a network or a trunk. The associtiation of traffic to a pipe is done in the config file, therefore, a pipe could represent SIP traffic coming from a user or the flow of specific SIP requests such as INVITE or REGISTER. Pipelimit started from ratelimit module, adding support for definition of pipes limits in database and dynamic names. Complexity of keeping everything in a module and make it dual mode functional resulted in a new module which is focused on just traffic shaping policies. For description of the algorithms see the README of ratelimit. 2. Dependencies 2.1. Kamailio Modules 2.2. External Libraries or Applications 2.1. Kamailio Modules The following modules must be loaded before this module: * database connection module. 2.2. External Libraries or Applications The following libraries or applications must be installed before running Kamailio with this module loaded: * None. 3. Exported Parameters 3.1. db_url (string) 3.2. plp_table_name (string) 3.3. plp_pipeid_column (string) 3.4. plp_limit_column (string) 3.5. plp_algorithm_column (string) 3.6. timer_interval (integer) 3.7. reply_code (integer) 3.8. reply_reason (string) 3.1. db_url (string) URL of the database server to be used. Default value is "mysql://openser:openserrw@localhost/openser". Example 1.1. Set db_url parameter ... modparam("pipelimit", "db_url", "dbdriver://username:password@dbhost/dbname") ... 3.2. plp_table_name (string) Name of DB table where data definition for pipes is stores. Default value is "pl_pipes". Example 1.2. Set plp_table_name parameter ... modparam("pipelimit", "plp_table_name", "mypipes") ... 3.3. plp_pipeid_column (string) Name of 'pipeid' column. Default value is "pipeid". Example 1.3. Set plp_pipeid_column parameter ... modparam("pipelimit", "plp_pipeid_column", "name") ... 3.4. plp_limit_column (string) Name of 'limit' column. Default value is "limit". Example 1.4. Set plp_limit_column parameter ... modparam("pipelimit", "plp_limit_column", "name") ... 3.5. plp_algorithm_column (string) Name of 'algorithm' column. Default value is "algorithm". Example 1.5. Set plp_algorithm_column parameter ... modparam("pipelimit", "plp_algorithm_column", "name") ... 3.6. timer_interval (integer) The initial length of a timer interval in seconds. All amounts of messages have to be divided by this timer to get a messages per second value. IMPORTANT: A too small value may lead to performance penalties due to timer process overloading. Default value is 10. Example 1.6. Set timer_interval parameter ... modparam("ratelimit", "timer_interval", 5) ... 3.7. reply_code (integer) The code of the reply sent by Kamailio while limiting. Default value is 503. Example 1.7. Set reply_code parameter ... modparam("ratelimit", "reply_code", 505) ... This value can be modified at runtime using sercmd Example 1.8. Set reply_code parameter at runtime sercmd cfg.set_now_int ratelimit reply_code 505 3.8. reply_reason (string) The reason of the reply sent by Kamailio while limiting. Default value is "Server Unavailable". Example 1.9. Set reply_reason parameter ... modparam("ratelimit", "reply_reason", "Limiting") ... This value can be modified at runtime using sercmd Example 1.10. Set reply_reason parameter at runtime sercmd cfg.set_now_string ratelimit reply_reason "Limiting" 4. Exported Functions 4.1. pl_check(name) 4.2. pl_drop([ [min ], max ]) 4.1. pl_check(name) Check the current request against the 'name' pipe. The pipe name can be provided via a pseudo variabile. The method will return an error code if the limit for the matched algorithm is reached. Meaning of the parameters is as follows: * name - the pseudovariable holding the pipe name. This function can be used from REQUEST_ROUTE. Example 1.11. rl_check usage ... # perform pipe match for current method if (!pl_check("one")) { pl_drop(); exit; } ... # use pipe 'one' for the current method via PV $var(p) = "one"; if (!pl_check("$var(p)")) { pl_drop(); exit; } ... 4.2. pl_drop([ [min ], max ]) For the current request, a "503 - Server Unavailable" reply is sent back. The reply may or may not have a "Retry-After" header. If no parameter is given, there will be no "Retry-After" header. If only the max parameter is given, the reply will contain a "Retry-After: max" header. If both min and max params are given, the reply will contain a "Retry-After: random" header with random being a random value between the given min and max. Meaning of the parameters is as follows: * min - the minimum value of "Retry-After" header. * max - the maximum value of "Retry-After" header. This function can be used from REQUEST_ROUTE. Example 1.12. pl_drop usage ... if (!pl_check("one")) { # send back a "503 - Server Unavailable" # with a "Retry-After: 5" pl_drop("5"); exit; } ... 5.
