Server Importer

Server-side Importer regularly processes the server plain-text log files, translates them and stores the summary information into a structured SQL database storage- MySQL, MS SQL or any other database engine capable of ODBC connection. Importer runs in background after 1AM, or on a custom schedule, when server load is minimal.


The following types of log files are currently supported:

  • SMTP
  • POP3
  • Anti-Virus
  • Anti-Spam with support for Anti-Spam LIVE

Information extracted from log files is then put together, restoring the relationships between sessions and services, providing comprehensive routing information for each message passing through the system. The data can then be interpreted in a number of ways:

  • By SQL commands directly on the database
  • Using the Viewer application with many preset queries
  • Creating custom queries for the Viewer interface
  • Reading the email summary report
  • Publishing the HTML report on the web

Desktop Viewer

All views can be filtered by account, IP, time range, server ID and session type.
