Hi Team!
Is there something on Dyna to we monitor outgoing messages from UNIX ( sendmail or postfix ) ?
Something like https://github.com/smoeding/zabbix-sendmail .
If any plans on roadmap please let me know. Would be a great feature to we monitor messages from Unix Systems.
Thanks, Mauricio

Hello @borgesm ,

you can meanwhile use the telegraf postifx plugin and push the data to Dynatrace.

Thanks Julius!
I will take a look! Do y have something for Sendmail ? Most of our servers are running sendmail over AIX.

Hi @borgesm ,

not directly. I did not deal with sendmail for ages (I'm a happy postfix user), but the straightforward way would be to just write a simple shell script that will execute the mailstats command, simply process the output and push the metrics locally using the dynatrace_ingest tool available in OneAgent.  You will just need to have it executed in a loop or from a cron daemon.
