[OpenSIPS-Users] Timer shift on dr-pinger

First of all, what kind of probing mode do you have defined ? ( [1] )

Possible reasons are that either you are talking to your gateways via 
TCP, and OpenSIPS is losing some time establishing new connections or 
actually sending out SIP messages via TCP. You can set some thresholds 
where OpenSIPS will warn you in case TCP gets slow, see [2].

Another possibility would be that you have your gateways defined as 
FQDNs, and OpenSIPS is wasting lots of time doing DNS queries.You can 
set some thresholds where OpenSIPS will warn you in case DNS gets slow, 
see [3].
