Exim, Perl and SNMP, oh my!
Operational monitoring of a live mail system is a headache, there are so many variables that it’s hard to keep track of everything that’s going on.
This talk will look at techniques that can be used to monitor your Exim based mail systems and will cover:
- What’s sitting in your mail queue?
- Which of your internal systems has a problem or looks like it might?
- Are the components of your mail system operating as you expect? Spam assassin and Antivirus.
We’ll be looking at ways to monitor Exim via scripts to examine log files, service status and generate stats that can then be collected via SNMP using OpenNMS.
