MAILSTATS(8)                System Manager's Manual               MAILSTATS(8)



NAME
       mailstats - print statistics collected by sendmail

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/mailstats [ filename ]

DESCRIPTION
       mailstats  prints  out the statistics collected by the sendmail program
       on mailer usage.  These statistics are collected if the file  indicated
       by  the  S configuration option of sendmail exists.  The mailstats pro-
       gram first prints the time that the statistics file was created and the
       last time it was modified.  It will then print a table with one row for
       each mailer specified in the configuration file.  The first  column  is
       the  mailer  number,  followed by the symbolic name of the mailer.  The
       next two columns refer to the number of messages received by  sendmail,
       and  the last two columns refer to messages sent by sendmail.  The num-
       ber of messages and their total size (in 1024 byte units) is given.  No
       numbers  are  printed  if  no  messages were sent (or received) for any
       mailer.

       You might want to  add  an  entry  to  /var/spool/cron/crontab/root  to
       reinitialize the statistics file once a night.  Copy /dev/null into the
       statistics file or otherwise truncate it to reset the counters.

FILES
       /etc/sendmail.st    default statistics file
       /etc/sendmail.cf    sendmail configuration file
       /var/spool/cron/crontab/root
       /dev/null

SEE ALSO
       sendmail(8)

BUGS
       Mailstats should read the configuration file instead of having a  hard-
       wired table mapping mailer numbers to names.
