Old MFC reporting vs. new reporting

Unanswered Question
Aug 15th, 2008

I like the new reports with the graphs and such. But did find the old MFC reports useful specially the "Volume Report by Domain" sections "Inbound Email by Recipient Domain" and "Outbound Email by Sending Host" this gave me a break down of the hosts relaying via the appliance and the total # of emails each sent. Any one know of a way to do this using the new reporting?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

The new AsyncOS version will have a per Recipient Domain Report. Other than that, you can continue using MFC if that helps you.

Yes the Old reports were definitely helpful, because it gave the stats by servers IP sending email to your IronPort and if you have DNS properly configured it would list them by the host name. There is a new report in the SMA "Outgoing Senders: Domains" but in the ESA it allows you to switch views to IP Addresses but no reports in SMA for the IP address view, and resolved to hostnames. How do I go about requesting for new report to be added?? ;-)

Note if you want your internal host IPs resolved in the reports and you are using the Internet Root DNS you will also need to add the xxx.in-addr.arpa. entries for your internal subnets to the alternate DNS entry list.

Example for 10.x.x.x and 192.168.x.x would be:
10.in-addr.arpa. -> Internal DNS server name
168.192.in-addr.arpa -> Internal DNS server name

That is correct Erich or you can use the "Alternate DNS servers Overrides" feature for the domain your hosts belong to. Or you can use your own internal DNS servers if you have them. ;-) But definitely give us the choice of reports by Domain or IP addresses please.
