Thread: sendmail log question

  1. sendmail log question

    Hi there,

    Are there any utilities to search through a sendmail log?
    I am trying to do it with grep and wc.
    I want to break down all sent messages by sent/connection reset/
    connection timed out/User unknown/Connection refused, in the end to be
    able to see how many were delivered and how many not. Also how many
    were sent per hour. I understand one email takes 2 lines in the log,
    one for from one for to.
    Also, where can I look for explanations for the above email status
    messages?
    Thank you, T

    splunk is a tool with free version that you can forward the sendmail
    log and search over there.
