Component monitors

Message Transfer Agent: Statistic 1

This monitor returns different MTA statistic. The returned values are as follows:

  • Total Domains - This component returns the total number of domains the MTA links to.
  • Closed Domains – This component returns the number of domains that are currently closed.
  • Total Post Offices – This component returns the total number of post offices in the domain.
  • Closed Post Offices – This component returns the number of post offices that are currently closed.
  • Total Gateways – This component returns the total number of gateways in the domain.
  • Closed Gateways – This component returns the number of gateways that are currently closed.

Set arguments in the following order:
IP_address,port

where

IP_address is the IP address of target server with installed MTA. By default it uses value ${IP} which will automatically set the IP address of target node;

port is the MTA HTTP access port. By default it is set to 7180.

If the monitor returns a value of -1, this can mean that the statistic cannot be found on MTA's web page.

Message Transfer Agent: Statistic 2

  • Total Undeliverable Messages – This component returns the total number of messages that could not be delivered to a domain, post office, or gateway. This value should be as low as possible.
  • Undeliverable Messages In Last 10 Minutes – This component returns the number of messages that could not be delivered to a domain, post office, or gateway in last ten minutes. This value should be as low as possible.
