NAME
mailstats - Displays statistics about mail traffic SYNOPSIS
mailstats [-o] [-C cffile [-f stfile] FLAGS
Do not display the name of the mailer in the output. Use cffile as the name of the sendmail "cf" file instead of /var/adm/sendmail/send- mail.cf. Use stfile as the input statistics file instead of /var/adm/sendmail/sendmail.st. DESCRIPTION
The mailstats command reads the information in the /var/adm/sendmail/sendmail.st file (or in the file specified with the -f flag), formats it, and writes it to standard output. Note also that you can change the location of the sendmail.st file by editing its pathname in the sendmail.cf file. EXAMPLES
The format of the information is shown in the following example, in which the first field (M) contains a number that indicates the position of that mailer in the sendmail.cf file, starting at 0 (zero). For example, the first mailer in the sendmail.cf file corresponds to the number 0 in the mailstats display, the second mailer corresponds to the number 1, and so on. Statistics from Thu Feb 17 11:20:01 2000 M msgsfr bytes_from msgsto bytes_to msgsrej msgsdis Mailer 1 50 77K 1 3K 0 0 local 6 43 59K 58 99K 0 0 smtp ============================================================ T 93 136K 59 102K 0 0 The fields in the report have the following meanings: Indicates the position of the mailer in the sendmail.cf file. Indicates the number of messages received by the local machine from the indicated mailer. Indicates the number of bytes in the messages received by the local machine from the indicated mailer. Indicates the number of messages sent from the local machine using the indicated mailer. Indicates the number of bytes in the messages sent from the local machine using the indicated mailer. Indicates the number of rejected messages. Indicates the number of discarded messages. Indicates the name of the mailer. If sendmail transmits mail directly to a file, such as the dead.letter file or an alias target, the message and byte counts are credited to the prog mailer, as defined in the sendmail.cf file. However, mailstats will still default to var/adm/sendmail/sendmail.st. FILES

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
