NAME

collectd-email - Documentation of collectd’s "email plugin"

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  # See collectd.conf(5)
  LoadPlugin email
  # ...
  <Plugin email>
    SocketGroup "collectd"
    SocketPerms "0770"
    MaxConns 5
  </Plugin>



DESCRIPTION

The email plugin opens an UNIX-socket over which one can submit email statistics, such as the number of ham, spam, virus, etc. mails received/handled, spam scores and matched spam checks.

This plugin is intended to be used with the Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Collectd SpamAssassin-plugin which is included in contrib/, but is of course not limited to that use.

OPERATION

This plugin collects data indirectly by providing a UNIX-socket that external programs can connect to. A simple line based protocol is used to communicate with the plugin:
o E-Mail type (e.g. ham, spam, virus, ...) and size (bytes):



  e:<type>:<size>



If size is less than or equal to zero, size is ignored.

o Spam score:



  s:<value>



o Successful spam checks (e.g. BAYES_99, SUBJECT_DRUG_GAP_C, ...):



  c:<type1>[,<type2>,...]



Each line is limited to 256 characters (including the newline character). Longer lines will be ignored.
