I've just uploaded the latest MailScanner-MRTG UNSTABLE release
(0.11.00) to sourceforge for the brave amongst you to test ;)
You can download the tarball or rpm at http://tinyurl.com/988vk
This testing release contains the initial implementation of the
new alarm functionality. This allows the user to specify thresholds
(high or low) beyond which an alarm is triggered. There are two
levels of alarm, warning or critical. At this stage alarms are only
indicated by a coloured bar on the web page, I plan to add additional
alert capability in a future release.
Note that this functionality relies on server side includes, so
apache should be configured with mod_include enabled and
The existing functionality remains unchanged, with just a few minor
bug fixes and extra safety checks.
Feedback is invited via the forums on the MailScanner-MRTG sourceforge
site at http://mailscannermrtg.sourceforge.net
- Updated specfile and install script to include new features
- Data collection run writes small include files into webserver
directory which are included using SSI's from index.html to provide
a visual indication of alarm status, a .htaccess file enables server
- New Alarm.pm which works out the current alarm status.
- Update copyright messages
- Added new threshold configuration file and parsing routines
- Fix typos in man page
- Include recipients discarded in count of spams rejected by the MTA.
NOTE: this currently works for sendmail only. If anyone wants this
exim/ postfix please email me.
- Check that data run timeout is defined in config file
- Minor correction to usage of df to eliminate error messages from df
filesystem specifications are missing from the conf file
