matchup - collect information on messages and deliveries

Syntax
Description

SYNTAX

matchup

DESCRIPTION

matchup reads a series of lines from qmail-send, with a numeric timestamp in front of each line. matchup matches the end of each delivery attempt with the start of the delivery attempt and with the relevant message information; it replaces qmail-send’s message reports and delivery reports with message lines and delivery lines in the format described below.

matchup exits after it sees end of file. It prints pending messages and deliveries on descriptor 5, in a format suitable for input to a future invocation of matchup:

<log.1 matchup >out.1 5>pending.2
cat pending.2 log.2 | matchup >out.2 5>pending.3
cat pending.3 log.3 | matchup >out.3 5>pending.4

Note that the 5> notation does not work with csh.

MESSAGE LINES

A message line summarizes the delivery results for a message that has left the queue:

m birth done bytes nk nz nd <sender> qp uid

Here birth and done are timestamps, bytes is the number of bytes in the message, nk is the number of successful deliveries, nz is the number of deferred delivery attempts, nd is the number of failed delivery attempts, sender is the message’s return path, qp is the message’s long-term queue identifier, and uid is the userid of the user that queued the message.

Note that matchup converts sender to lowercase. This can lose information, since a few hosts pay attention to the case in the box part of an address.

DELIVERY LINES

A delivery line shows the result of a single delivery attempt:

d result birth dstart ddone bytes
<sender> chan.recip qp uid reason

Here birth, bytes, sender, qp, and uid are message information as above; chan is the channel for this delivery; recip is the recipient address for this delivery; dstart and ddone are timestamps; result is the letter k for success, z for deferral, d for failure; and reason is a more detailed explanation of the delivery result.

matchup converts recip to lowercase.
