Chart Counters

Axigen Administration via WebAdmin

The "Parameters" tab allows you to add/edit/delete chart counters. Use the "Add chart counter" button to add a new parameter that will be graphically represented on the chart.

In the "General" tab, use the options under the General Settings section in order to specify the parameter ID, the parameters to be collected, the "Chart Group", as well as the "Aggregation Function" used in representing the values for the counter.

Use the drop-down menu available on the right hand side of the "Parameter to collect" option in order to select the new parameter to be monitored.

Below is a brief description of the Reporting Parameters.

All connection related parameters are usually incremented / updated only when that specific connection is closed.

System Parameters

  • QUEUE_Size — monitors the number of messages in the Axigen's processing queue.

Filter Parameters

All filter objects have an associated AFSL file. Filter parameters are in fact counters for the various resulting actions generated by the AFSL files. For each available socket filter (active or not) 7 parameters are available: Pass, Discard, Match, Reject, Successful, Error and Total. This means that the total number of filter related parameters is the number of filters * 7.

  • <filter_name> Pass — each time a PASS returning code is generated for a message this counter is incremented.
  • <filter_name> Discard — this counter is incremented each time a DISCARD returning code is generated for a message.
  • <filter_name> Match — each time a MATCH returning code is generated for a message this counter is incremented, as such the "actionOnMatch" value will be returned (depending on the filter this can mean pass / discard / reject).
  • <filter_name> Reject — this counter is incremented each time a REJECT returning code is generated for a message (NDR will also be sent for that message)
  • <filter_name> Successful — each time a message was successfully tested and either passed, matched or was discarded / rejected (no errors were triggered) this counter is incremented.
  • <filter_name> Error — this counter is incremented each time a message triggered an AFSL or any processing related error.
  • <filter_name> Total — each time a message was processed (Error or Successful) this counter is incremented.

Example: Built-in Filter: SpamAssassin

The "Chart Group" drop-down box allows you to choose the level for which data will be collected in reference to the above set parameter.

Use the drop-down menu to select one of the available Aggregation Functions: average, maximum, minimum or total.

When you are done configuring these parameters, remember to hit the "Save Configuration" button to preserve your changes.
