mailstats(1)                     User Commands                    mailstats(1)



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 send-
       mail(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-sep-
       arated 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

                               output.



       -p                      Output information in program-readable mode and
                               clear statistics.



       -P                      Output  information  in  program-readable  mode
