Alert When Incoming messages Drops to Zero

Unanswered Question

I recently discovered that we were not receiving any inbound email.  This was a networking issue.  However, can I get my C160 to send me an alert when my incoming message count drops to zero, or to a low number over a time period?  We get 300k to 750k message a day, so if the incoming messages per hour drops to less than 500 I want to know.  Thanks.

There was some discussion over the past to do script monitor on the C systems via https://


In the user manual, there is


Mail Status

http://hostname/xml/status


Host Mail Status for a Specified Host

http://hostname/xml/hoststatus?hostname=host


DNS Status

http://hostname/xml/dnsstatus


Top Incoming Domains

http://hostname/xml/topin


Top Outgoing Domainsa

http://hostname/xml/tophosts


You may need to switch to https, if you admin interface uses SSL port listening.


With commandline, you can do this


curl -k -u admin:yourpassword https://hostname/xml/status








Further scripting on checking the in_recips or delivered_recips over an extended period may show there is potential problem.
