policy-test - Postfix Policy Daemon Testing Tool


policy-test [options...] unix:/file/path policy-test [options...] inet:hostname:port
 -h, --help              display this help and exit
     --version           output version information and exit
 -v, --verbose           increase verbosity level


policy-test is a script that converts Postfix log entries on the standard input into requests to the Postfix policy daemon given as the first argument. It can be used for:
Testing the performance of a policy daemon
Pre-seeding a Greylist policy daemon with data from the logs
Note that this program is still in its very early stages of development and does only support a small subset of the normal attributes used in the Postfix policy delegation protocol. It basically supports the bare minimum to make it work with Postgrey.
Also note that a non-standard attribute is being generated: policy_test_time contains the Unix timestamp of when the client connected. Copyright (c) 2007 by Open Systems AG. All rights reserved.
