This plugin was created due to issues where Sipsak locks up when the proxy on the other end is not reachable.
In addition this plugin has several features not found in other SIP OPTIONS check plugins.

You can choose to accept any SIP packet as a valid response.

It can detect the several different kinds of failure and report them properly:
1) No response from proxy/Response timeout (this value can be set)
2) ICMP response (standard response on UNIX servers if the port is closed)
3) Malformed SIP/packet

It reports the standard MIN/MAX/AVG response time as well.

It also has some extra messages than can be added on failure for event handling and/or extra information.

It is written purely in Perl and has no external requirements.
