Good Morning:

Does anyone have any recommendations for a graphical tool that can be used to
track mission critical Unix mail queues (on Sparc 450's)? What I am envisioning
is something like a plug in for HP Openview, SunNetMgr etc that (ideally) would
give graphs showing daily mail messages in and out among other things, sendmail
process graphsd as well
as send alerts to a mgmt device and a pager.

I realize a home grown solution can be created, however, ongoing support and
upgrades will be an issue with 15 of the servers around the country, almost
immediate deployment targets, and centralized support of decentralized machines

Summaries of responses will be shared.
