	<title>Overview</title>
	<para>
		The SIPtrace module offer a possibility to store incoming and outgoing SIP
		messages in a database and/or duplicate to the capturing server (using <acronym>HEP</acronym>,
		the Homer encapsulation protocol, or plain SIP mode). Since version 5.3.0 new levels of tracing
		are available. Transactions and dialogs can be traced.
	</para>
	<para>
		There are multiple ways of storing information:
		<itemizedlist>
		<listitem>
		<para>
		by calling the sip_trace() method explicitly in the &kamailio; configuration
		file. In this case the original message is processed along with it's corresponding
		transaction/dialog if certain flags are used.
		</para>
		</listitem>
		<listitem>
		<para>
		by setting <quote>trace_mode</quote> to mirror or store to db all traffic.
		</para>
		</listitem>
		</itemizedlist>
	</para>

	<para>
	The tracing can be turned on/off using Kamailio <acronym>RPC</acronym> commands.
	</para>
	<para>
	&ctltool; rpc siptrace.status on

		<para>
		Store or forward the current processed SIP message/transaction/dialog in database.
		It is stored in the form prior applying changes made to it. Based on mode, one can trace
		the current message('m'), the current transaction('t') or the current dialog('d').
		If no mode is given, it falls back to the default mode - transaction tracking when
		trace_flag is set, otherwise only the current message.
		</para>
		<para>Meaning of the parameters is as follows:</para>
		<itemizedlist>
		<listitem>
		<para><emphasis>address</emphasis> - The address in form of SIP URI
		where to send a duplicate of traced message. This parameter trumps
		duplicate_uri and allows tracing to more than one server.
		</para>
		</listitem>
		<listitem>
		<para><emphasis>correlation_id</emphasis> - A string with a correlation ID
		to be added to the HEP header when using HEPv3.
		It's possible to use PVs.
		</para>
		</listitem>
		<listitem>
		<para><emphasis>mode</emphasis> - SIP messages to be traced. One can trace the current message

		<title>Database setup</title>
		<para>
		Before running &kamailio; with siptrace and activated trace_to_database
		parameter, you have to setup the database tables where the module will
		store the data. For that, if the table were not created by the
		installation script or you choose to install everything by yourself
		you can use the siptrace-create.sql <acronym>SQL</acronym> script in
		the database directories in the kamailio/scripts folder as template.
		You can also find the complete database documentation on the
		project webpage, &kamailiodbdocslink;.

	Stateless forwarded messages (forward()) are not logged if you set the
	flag, use sip_trace() inside <emphasis>onsend_route</emphasis> block.
	</para>
	<para>
	If dialog level tracing is used internally generated BYE transaction(in
	case of internal timeouts) won't be traced. At the moment kamailio offers
	no posibility to trace those messages.
	</para>
	<para>
		<emphasis>Trace_info</emphasis> xavp name is reserved by this module.
		Any use of xavp with this name will result in overlapping internal
