tophosts counter

Answered Question
Apr 1st, 2010

Hello there,

"tophosts" CLI command provide similar report as below.

How long the counts under each column is accumulated?.

For example, there are "336" hard bounces for "aol.com". This is in an hour or in 24 hours, in life time?.

Is it possible to reset this count periodically?

Help on this to identify will be highly appreciated.

Hello Sikkandar,

It took me some time to figure it out.... but finally I think I have found your answer.

the output of the CLI "tophosts" command shows the same output as the GUI "Monitor/Delivery status" window.

the help deliverd by that page states:

"This page displays a list of the top 20, 50, or 100  recipient domains for messages delivered by the system within the  last three hours"

so that means you are watching the status of the last  3 hours I guess. ;-)

I believe it's since the last reset, you can use the "resetcounters" command to initiate a reset.

Hello Chris,

Thank you for your response. But I donot think, it is from last reset. If it is from last reset, the count should be huge for each domain, since we did not reset the counter for quite long time and our ironport has heavy outbound traffic.

Regards,

Sikkandar
