Not a lot to break; here's the script in its entirety:


grep -c mailer=local /var/log/maillog
egrep -c 'uce () ftc|reject|njabl' /var/log/maillog

A lot of mail traffic on my box is mailing lists; perhaps thats why
the graphs look so smooth.

  Here's the stats for one of the smtp boxes in our cluster (83% rejection
  rate...and it's +/- 1% across the other boxes in the cluster):
