Adding Charts in Axigen

Reporting & Monitoring

As previously explained, the Axigen Reporting service can be configured to monitor various parameters of interest. As a hands-on example, the following charts will detail the quantity of messages processed by the SpamAssassinBundled filter, depending on their status.

Example 1

Defining a chart that displays the quantity of messages passing the SpamAssassinBundled filter with the verdict of Spam:

  • Login to the WebAdmin interface;

  • Click on the "Status & Monitoring" drop-down menu;

  • Click the "Charts" link;

  • Click the "Add chart" button;

  • Type the name of the new chart group: "Spam", in this example;

  • In the "Chart Name" field, type the name of the chart to be created (in our case "Spam_messages");

  • Within the "Parameters" section, click on the "Add chart counter", then select the Built-in Filter: SpamAssassinBundled Match parameter to collect.


  • Click the "Save configuration" button at the bottom to save the newly introduced data;

Please note that any changes to a chart's data recording settings will lead to a reset of the chart's information.

Example 2

Defining a chart that displays the quantity of messages passing the SpamAssassinBundled filter with the verdict of "Not Spam":

  • Click on the "Add Chart" button in the "Charts" page;

  • Click "Edit" on the already created Spam chart group;

  • In the "Chart Name" field, fill in the name of the chart to be created; in this case, you can type "Clean_messages";



  • Click on the "Next step" button. You will then access a new page with further configuration options regarding the chart parameters and display settings;

  • Within the "Parameters" section, click on the "Add chart counter", then select the SpamAssassinBundled "Passparameter" to collect.

  • Click the "Save configuration" button at the bottom to save the newly introduced data;

  • Click the "OK" button from the warning message box to complete the creation of the chart; since this is a new chart, there is no data stored regarding the specified parameter.
     

The above charts are mentioned as a guideline of the required steps to create and configure a chart.
