Mandrill is a transactional email API, it's reliable, powerful, and ideal for sending data-driven emails.
Mandrill can both send and receive smtp based email via http webhooks. Mandrill's API can be used to query the volume of email being sent and actually delivered.
This plugin checks the status of mail volumes sent through the Mandrill mail gateway service. Typically, an alerting or messaging service will be sending emails continuously and if either more or less than a threshold is exceeded, it may indicate a failure of internal systems. This check will alert if more or less than a set number of emails is being sent, or if the unsent backlog is exceeded.
This plugin checks the status of mail volumes sent through the Mandrill mail server. It checks for a minimum number of messages sent and alerts if the number is less than the warning/critical thresholds. If it is expected that mail is sent on a regular basis, if less than the expected amount is sent it may indicate a problem on Mandrill, most likely billing or reputation related. You should be checking the mail host which sends to the Mandrill API to check that it is working in addition.

Also, this checks for a backlog on Mandrill which represents queued mail which has been sent from the API but not delivered. Values from the API which give messages opened and rejected are also presented, but as they are not certain to be correct, they are not alerted on.

Status info is provided which allows pretty graphs to be drawn
