Rspamd Processing

Rspamd is an advanced spam filtering system that allows evaluation of messages by a number of rules including regular expressions, statistical analysis and custom services such as URL black lists. Each message is analysed by Rspamd and given a spam score.A ccording to this spam score and the user’s settings, Rspamd recommends an action for the MTA to apply to the message, for example, to pass, reject or add a header. Rspamd is designed to process hundreds of messages per second simultaneously, and provides a number of useful features. As Rspamd is open-source, many administrators will run it separate from SmarterMail as a remote service on Linux servers. As a result, this report tells an administrator how efficiently Rspamd is running on a remote server by detailing the number of successful and failed connections to the remote SpamAssassin service.

An administrator can change the dates of the report as well as the "Step", which means whether you want to see the report by hour, day, week, month or quarter. (Based on the start and end dates -- so a quarerly report would need a full 3 months selected.) Admins can change the chart type by clicking the chart icon next to the date, or even export the report as needed. Each column in the report is sortable, either ascending or descending, and the sort can change simply by clicking the column header.

The following report items are available:

  • Day - The specified amount of time that the report data falls within.
  • Successful Connections - The total number of successful connections to the remote server.
  • Failed Connections - The total number of failed connections to the remote server.

It's also possible to export this data in CSV format for use in other applications, such as Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, Apple Numbers, etc. To do this, simply click the page icon in the upper right hand corner of the reports page. Once clicked, you'll be able to save the data and name the file to whatever you want.
