NAME

exim_mailstats - Plugin to monitor the number of mails received and delivered by exim.

APPLICABLE SYSTEMS

Exim version 3 or 4.

CONFIGURATION

Usually no configuration is needed for this plugin.

  [exim*]
     env.logdir   /path/to/exim-logs/
     env.logname  mainlog
     env.exim     /usr/sbin/exim

The default value for the logdir variable is determined by running exim -bP log_file_path. mainlog is the default name given to exims main log, but it has been known to be called "main.log" in some versions of Red Hat/Fedora for example.

NOTE: If you need to set logname you must also set logdir as there is no automatic way to determine the path then.

The default value of the exim variable is /usr/sbin/exim, but if there is a executable called /usr/sbin/exim4 this is used instead.

INTERPRETATION

Need some input from an exim postmaster here.

Torstein Svendsen recalls originally writing this with Henrik Grindal Bakken to create MRTG graphs of exims mailqueues for Linpros client RunBox. Thus this code predates Munin itself.

The first traces of the plugin in CVS seems to be in 2002. Further messing by Jimmy Olsen the same year. Bugfixing and cleanup by Nicolai Langfeldt 2008.
