Sitescope monitor for mail - Getting statistics

Hi,

  I'm trying to get monitoring against a POP3 mailbox using Sitescope. I'd like to be able to telnet to port 110, and then autheniticate, and run the STATS command, and interpret the results. Has anyone done such a thing? I've played around a little with a script, but wanted to see if there was something out of the box I'm not seeing.

Thanks,
Stephen

Hi,

Check docs for Mail monitor, it supports POP3.

Kenneth,

  I have. There's no accounting for the response of the STAT command. The documentation makes mention of STAT being called. However, you don't see that as part of the monitor result, and therefore, you can't make a threshold such that if Message Count > 5 then alert, or what have you.

Thanks,

Stephen

 

ETA - I've gotten it working more so in the VuGen tool which would corrleate to BPMs, but it would be my preference to use Sitescope.

You're right if yo need such specific counters you may head for custom monitor instead.

Has anyone written a custom monitor for this? I've been poking around, but if someone has something, that would be great.

Thanks!
