If I would have to code it and do it in C (for performance reasons),
perhaps I would go for patching sngrep (already mentioned here) or sipgrep.

sngrep already has options to display duration of singaling and duration
of connecting, so could be easy to track the places in the exiting code.
On the other hand, I am not sure if it would be easy to just write
reports to files instead of displaying with ncurses on the terminal.

Main reason for replying here is to point to wireshark/tshark, which has
embedded Lua support. That could be handy for non-C programers and the
performances are still high. Searching on google for wireshark+sip+lua
will reveal several examples that can be used as a starting point.
