Reports Overview

The practice of routinely generating and evaluating reports provides users, domain administrators, and system administrators with the information they need to uncover problems and establish policies.

Summary and Trend Reports

SmarterMail includes dozens of predefined summary and trend reports:

  • Summary reports display summarized data at the system, domain, and user level within a user defined block of time. Summary reports are especially useful for determining the overall usage and performance of systems, domains, and users relative to each other.
  • Trend reports display data points—connected by trend lines—for a system, domain, or user over a selected time span. Trend reports are especially useful for determining the usages and performance month-by month, day-by-day, and hour-by-hour (etc.).

These reports can be grouped and filtered to create custom reports. With summary, trend, and custom reporting, SmarterMail provides domain and system administrators with the information they need to efficiently monitor the performance of their mail server software. Note: Not all reports are available for users and/or domains. Consult your system or domain administrator for report availability.
