collectd-email - Documentation of collectd's "email plugin"
# See collectd.conf(5)
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
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.
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:
- E-Mail type (e.g. "ham", "spam",
"virus", ...) and size (bytes):
If "size" is less than or equal to zero, "size" is
- Spam score:
- Successful spam checks (e.g. "BAYES_99",
Each line is limited to 256 characters (including the newline character).
Longer lines will be ignored.
