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 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.
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 ignored.
· Spam score:
· Successful spam checks (e.g. "BAYES_99", "SUBJECT_DRUG_GAP_C",
Each line is limited to 256 characters (including the newline
character). Longer lines will be ignored.
