Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a number of CentOS machines running postfix and sendmail. Is there some thing that I can use to monitor the current message throughput of a mail server from its logs? I'd particularly would like to know the messages processed per second in real-time. Unfortunately postfix does not include this sort of functionality out of the box.

http://mailgraph.schweikert.ch/ should do the trick

Maybe glTail would do the trick? http://fudgie.org/

glTail is definitely real-time, but I'm afraid it's way too flashy and graphically intensive for my needs. –  kdingo Sep 28 '09 at 15:08
