exiqsumm - Summarising the queue
exiqsumm [-a] [-c]
utility is a Perl script which reads the output of exim
and produces a summary of the messages on the queue. Thus, you use it
by running a command such as
exim -bp | exiqsumm
The output consists of one line for each domain that has messages waiting for
it, as in the following example:
3 2322 74m 66m msn.com.example
This lists the number of messages for the domain, their total volume, and the
length of time that the oldest and the newest messages have been waiting. By
default the output is sorted on the domain name, but exiqsumm
which cause the output to be sorted by oldest
message and by count of messages, respectively.
The output of exim -bp
contains the original addresses in the message, so
this also applies to the output from exiqsumm.
No domains from
addresses generated by aliasing or forwarding are included (unless the
“one_time” option of the redirect router has been used to
convert them into ‘top level’ addresses).
