IP Connections

SmarterMail includes several detailed, real-time performance dashboards that supply system administrators with important, on-demand statistics about their server as a whole as well as information on the traffic coming into and going out of, their servers.

Each card, on each dashboard, represents an overview of a specific metric. Clicking on the card takes system administrators to the overall report that gives a more detailed breakdown of what is being displayed. The exception is the general Dashboard, which gives overall information that doesn't have a specific report associated to the metrics shown.

The Dashboards available include:
