with our old ipMonitor we was able to test the ability of our SMTP server to receive and distribute email, as well as the ability of your
"end-users" to log in from a POP3 enabled client and retrieve their mail.
Are there a way to simulate an email roundtrip and measures the time it takes for the series of transaction to occur?:
- First, Opsview-Monitoring (plugin) delivers an email to the SMTP server (p25) for the recipient address I specify.
- Next, Opsview-Monitoring (plugin) logs in to the POP3 Mail Server (p110) and retrive the list of queued mail.
- Then, Opsview-Monitoring (plugin) locates and validates the email it sent, and sends a DELE command to delete the message.
- Finaly, Opsview-Monitoring (plugin) disconnects from the server by sending a QUIT command to terminate the connection.
Are there a way, or knows somebody a Nagios plugin, which can I do the check like this one?
Thanks in advance for a feedback
