Postfix Mails Stats
This is simple script that wil do the work with pnp4nagios graphs.
Please Change mail.log permissions like (chmod 644 mail.log) so plugin have read permission on mail.log
Implement logrotation on mail.log this file will rotate daily then you have stats of daily basis.
Warning and Critical levels are not defined because i dint feel the need.
Total Mails Sent: 110357 Bounced: 861 Deferred: 6068 |Sent=110357;0;9999999 Bounced=861;0;9999999 Deferred=6068;0;9999999

Plugin Works Well.

While execution, if you're getting Shell Interpreter Error, run "sed -i -e 's/\r$//' check_mstat" command.
Here is my check_mstat file

# Please Change mail.log permissions like (chmod 644 mail.log)
# Implement logrotation on mail.log this file will rotate daily then you have stats of daily basis
sent=`cat $LOGFILE | grep status=sent | /usr/bin/wc -l`
bounced=`cat $LOGFILE | grep status=bounced | /usr/bin/wc -l`
deferred=`cat $LOGFILE | grep status=deferred | /usr/bin/wc -l`

echo "Total Mails Sent: $sent Bounced: $bounced Deferred: $deferred |Sent="$sent";0;9999999 Bounced="$bounced";0;9999999 Deferred="$deferred";0;9999999"
exit 0
Here is my postfix.cfg file

define host {
use generic-switch
host_name central_nagios_postfix
define hostgroup {
hostgroup_name Postfix
members central_nagios_postfix
define service {
use generic-service,srv-pnp
host_name central_nagios_postfix
check_interval 5
retry_interval 1
contacts nishith.vyas
service_description Postfix_Mail_Sent
check_command check_postfix_sent_mails
notification_interval 1440

Here is my commands.cfg file.

define command{
command_name check_postfix_sent_mails
command_line $USER1$/check_mstat
If PNP4Nagios has already been configured, this will start showing graphs also.

Many thanks to the author for making such a nice & simple script.
