NAME

  mailstats - Displays statistics about	mail traffic

SYNOPSIS

  mailstats [-o] [-C cffile[-f stfile]]

OPTIONS

  -o  Do not display the name of the mailer in the output.

  -C cffile
      Use cffile as the	name of	the sendmail "cf" file instead of
      /var/adm/sendmail/sendmail.cf.

  -f stfile
      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
  option), 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.

  The fields in	the report have	the following meanings:

  M   Indicates	the position of	the mailer in the sendmail.cf file.

  msgsfr
      Indicates	the number of messages received	by the local machine from the
      indicated	mailer.

  bytes_from
      Indicates	the number of bytes in the messages received by	the local
      machine from the indicated mailer.

  msgsto
      Indicates	the number of messages sent from the local machine using the
      indicated	mailer.

  bytes_to
      Indicates	the number of bytes in the messages sent from the local
      machine using the	indicated mailer.

  msgsrej
      Indicates	the number of rejected messages.

  msgsdis
      Indicates	the number of discarded	messages.

  Mailer
      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

  /usr/sbin/mailstats
      Specifies	the command path

  /var/adm/sendmail/sendmail.st
      Contains system statistics

  /var/adm/sendmail/sendmail.cf
      Contains configuration information for sendmail
