You can try similar to these,substitue the admin username and password for your own:

curl -k https:///xml/status -u admin:ironport

Equivalent to the IronPort CLI command "status" for general system status

curl -k https:///xml/dnsstatus -u admin:ironport

Equivalent to the IronPort CLI command "dnsstatus" for DNS status

curl -k https:///xml/topin -u admin:ironport

Equivalent to the IronPort CLI command "topin" for top incoming domains

curl -k https:///xml/tophosts -u admin:ironport

Equivalent to the IronPort CLI command "tophosts" for top outgoing messages

curl -k https:///xml/hoststatus -u admin:ironport -F hostname=example.com

Equivalent to the IronPort CLI command "hoststatus" for a particular host.

SNMP can be used to monitory overall system health, including the hardware.

Modify User session time-out values on the Ansync OS 7.6 for Ema

Hi David,

   Thanks a million for your prompt response.  I am trying to set the timeout values on a per user basis such that the account setup for monitoring the appliance does not timeout after a long period of inactivity whilst other users accounts may remain at default settings.

Regards,

Obiora

Hve you thought about using XML screen scraping for the monitor?

E.g.  https:///xml/status?username=&password=

You could put this in a script and loop it every 5 mins or whatever and no need to worry about admin timeouts.

There are other xml commands that can extract other data.
