NAME

mailping-latency - Munin plugin to graph latency of mail deliveries  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/share/mailping/munin-plugins/mailping-latency {[config] | ['']}
 

DESCRIPTION


 mailping-latency is a Munin plugin that monitors the time spent between email submit and it's delivery.  

Configuration output

When passed config, it outputs Munin configuration information. If there are no circuits defined (no subdirectories in /etc/mailping), it specifies that Munin should draw no graph either.

If configuration files /etc/mailping/circuit/warnlatency and /etc/mailping/circuit/faillatency exist, the values in them are passed on to Munin, for use in Nagios alert integration.  

Value output

When passed an empty string '', mailping-latency outputs latency of last successful probe message, for each configured circuit.  

FILES

/etc/mailping/

List of circuits that exist; each subdirectory is a circuit.

/etc/mailping/circuit/warnlatency

If latency is greater than this many seconds, a Nagios warning is triggered by Munin (assuming it has been configured to do that). Default: no warnings.

/etc/mailping/circuit/faillatency

If latency is greater than this many seconds, a Nagios alert is triggered by Munin (assuming it has been configured to do that). Default: no alerts.

/var/lib/mailping/state/circuit/latency

Amount of latency in seconds of the last successful probe for circuit.
 

ENVIRONMENT

MAILPING_CONFIGDIR

Override the location of the configuration directory. Default: /etc/mailping

MAILPING_STATEDIR

Override the location of the state directory. Circuit states are stored in the state subdirectory of this directory, in subdirectories named after the circuit name. Default: /var/lib/mailping
