check_mailqueue.pl [-d] [-h] -w -c

-w, --warning warning threshold - mails in queue
number of mails in queue > time
ex: 30=3d,100=3h
-c, --critical critical threshold - mails in queue
number of mails in queue > time
ex: 30=3d,100=3h
-d, --debug enable debug mode
-h, --help show help message

warning and critical threshold:
specify something like 100=5h which means: more than 100 mails in queue for more than 5 hours. You can specify multiple declarations
for instance
-w 100=5h,30=3d,10=10d -c 150=5h,35=3d,15=10d
check_mailqueue.pl checks the mailqueue size. Thresholds can be given in a very detailed way. Let's say you wanna specify a threshold of 50 mails in queue longer than 4 days => 50=4d
You can specify multiple time frames for critical and warning threshold.
It uses mailq to get the mailq size.
