messages in queue: 0
messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0
thanks, i'm trying to screen scrape the number of messages in queue to feed into our monitoring application. I can't seem to get the number of messages value all by itself becuase the number of messages preprocessed keeps getting in the way.
How do I isolate the "number of messages in queue"
Found a way around it, we modified the qmail-qstat script and just edited out what we didn't want. But now our monitoring system is running as it's own user and doesn't have permissions to access the queue directories. Hmmm, i'm not sure how to get around this right now.
Add that user in "qmail" group (the user which you are running your monitering system as) "qmail" group have access to queue directories and messages (read only), so it should let your monitering system access the same if you add your monitering system user in "qmail" group.
Let me know what you are trying to accomplish in detail, so that i can suggest a suitable solution
