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
