I believe the timers are disabled by setting
<param name="rtp-timer-name" value="none"/>
in the sofia profile(s). The default configurations use a value of "soft".
I have similar performance concerns bridging G711 SIP calls between two
sofia profiles on an AMD Geode processor. With full media it occupies
roughly 3.0% CPU per call. It scales to 25 calls with room for other basic
system processes. Maybe 26 or 27 if we really pushed it and maintained the
cps extremely low. Proxy media mode gives about a 15% performance increase
in our case. Bypass mode was not tested because it isn't appropriate for
