mailstats - print statistics collected by sendmail


mailstats [ -o ] [ -c | -C configfile ] [ -f statisticsfile ] [ -p ] file


The mailstats utility prints out the statistics collected by the sendmail(1M) program on mailer usage. These statistics are collected if the file indicated by the S configuration option of sendmail (defined in /etc/mail/ exists. The default statistics file is /etc/mail/ mailstats first prints the time that the statistics file was created and the last time it was modified. Then, the statis- tics for each mailer are displayed on a single line, each with the following whitespace-separated fields: M The mailer number. msgsfr Number of messages from the mailer. bytes_from Kbytes from the mailer. msgsto Number of messages to the mailer. bytes_to Kbytes to the mailer. msgsrej Number of messages rejected by the mailer. msgsdis Number of messages discarded by the mailer. Mailer The name of the mailer. After this display, a line totaling the values for all of the mailers is displayed, separated from the previous infor- mation by a line containing only equal sign (=) characters. You might want to add an entry to /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root to reinitialize the statistics file once a night. Copy /dev/null into the statistics file or otherwise truncate it to reset the counters. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 26 May 2000 1 User Commands mailstats(1)
