The GW MTA Service Layer
This layer monitors the GWMTA in and out to reveal the following:
- Availability and responsiveness of the MTA
- Overall MTA health in terms of the throughput seen by the MTA, outstanding messages to the MTA, error-filled messages, etc.
- The health of the MTA's Admin thread
- The type and length of the message queues on the MTA
