    Default Interpreting graphs?

    I'm looking at the graphs in the Admin console and am trying to figure out what the graphs are telling me:

    For the 48 hour graph in Message count, for example, if it hovers around 4k, what's the internval the 4k refers to? is it 4k/hour? 4k/(4 hours)?

    Similarly for the other graph for 30, 60 and 365 days?

    Am I missing some cue in the graphs that would be giving me this info?

    Ok, here an example:



    This is the graph that shows message counts for the last 48 hours. The graph shows that last night around midnight the server processed (sent and received) less than 2000 messages. Also, it shows that today around noon, the server processed between 4K and 6K messages. There is a catch though, if you are using 4.0, these graphs are most likely broken. They are fixed in 4.5

    Thanks for the response!

    I guess my question was "When it says that around noon, it processed between 4k and 6k messages" what time period is it talking about? 12pm - 12:10pm? 12pm - 1pm?"
    Or is it saying that the amount of traffic I processed around 12pm indicates that it will be processing around 5k (well, between 4k and 6k) for the 4-hour block that shown in the graph from 12pm-4pm?
    It's almost a guarantee that in our case, when the server says it's processed 4k around noon, it hasn't processed 4k messages in any time less than 4 hours.

    The last 48 hour graph has data aggregated into 1 hour resolutions, with major points every 4 hours. All the graphs have the latest (current) data on the right hand side, data moves in the direction of the red arrow.

    As far as accounting for the numbers, remember this is all the messages processed by the mta. This includes delivered mail as well as bounces. zmdailyreport will give you an idea of where messages are being delivered as well as counts. For instance for the server which the graph was provided processes 40-50k messages per day but after bounces and spam filtering only 6-8k of those messages are delivered into the message store.

    The amavis msg count is more accurate picture of what is being delivered.
