pmdapostfix — Postfix performance metrics domain agent (PMDA)

Description

pmdapostfix is a Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) which exports mail queue sizes as reported by qshape(1), as well as aggregate statistics collected from mail.log.

Installation

If you want access to the names and values for the Postfix performance metrics, do the following as root:

# cd $PCP_PMDAS_DIR/postfix
# ./Install

To uninstall, do the following as root:
