NAME
mailstats - display mail statistics SYNOPSIS
mailstats [-c] [-o] [-p] [-P] [-C cffile] [-f stfile] DESCRIPTION
The mailstats utility displays the current mail statistics. First, the time at which statistics started being kept is displayed, in the format specified by ctime(3). Then, the statistics for each mailer are displayed on a single line, each with the following white space 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. msgsdis Number of messages discarded. msgsqur Number of messages quarantined. Mailer The name of the mailer. After this display, a line totaling the values for all of the mailers is displayed (preceded with a ``T''), separated from the previous information by a line containing only equals (``='') characters. Another line preceded with a ``C'' lists the number of TCP connections. The options are as follows: -C Read the specified file instead of the default sendmail configuration file. -c Try to use submit.cf instead of the default sendmail configuration file. -f Read the specified statistics file instead of the statistics file specified in the sendmail configuration file. -P Output information in program-readable mode without clearing statistics. -p Output information in program-readable mode and clear statistics. -o Don't display the name of the mailer in the output. The mailstats utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs. FILES
/etc/mail/sendmail.cf The default sendmail configuration file. /var/log/mail/statistics The default sendmail statistics file. SEE ALSO

NAME
mailstats - print statistics collected by sendmail SYNOPSIS
mailstats [-o] [-c ] [-C configfile] [-f statisticsfile] [-p] [-P] DESCRIPTION
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 StatusFile configuration option of sendmail (defined in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf) exists. The default statistics file is /etc/mail/statistics. To enable mailstats, you must, as root, touch /etc/mail/statistics. See the StatusFile processing option in sendmail(1M). mailstats first prints the time that the statistics file was created and the last time it was modified. Then, the statistics 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. msgsqur Number of messages quarantined by the mailer. Mailer The name of the mailer. The display of statistics described above is followed by a separation line containing only equal sign (=) characters. After the separation line, a line preceded with a "T" and totaling the values for all of the mailers is displayed. This is followed by another line preceded with a "C" that lists the number of TCP connections. To reinitialize the statistics file once a night, add an entry to root's crontab(1): mailstats -p > /dev/null OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -c Try to use submit.cf instead of the default sendmail configuration file. -C configfile Specify a sendmail configuration file. -f statisticsfile Specify a sendmail statistics file. -o Do not display the name of the mailer in the output. -p Output information in program-readable mode and clear statistics. -P Output information in program-readable mode without clearing statistics. USAGE
See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of mailstats when encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2^31 bytes). FILES
/dev/null Zero-lined file /etc/mail/statistics Default sendmail statistics file /etc/mail/sendmail.cf Default sendmail configuration file ATTRIBUTES
