IMS IMAP Test

This test reports critical metrics pertaining to the performance of the IMAP service of the Oracle Communications Messaging server.

Target of the test : An Oracle Communications Messaging Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every Oracle Communications messaging server.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed.

Host

The host for which the test is to be configured.

Port

The SMTP port of the Oracle Communications messaging server.

ServerRoot

Specify the path to the directory into which all servers of a given server group (i.e., all servers managed by a given Administration Server) are installed. For example, in Windows environments, the path can be expressed as: C:\iOracom\server5. In Unix platforms, the path can be specified in the following format: /usr/iOracom/server5. A server group may include other Oracle Communications messaging servers in addition to the messaging server.

Version

This refers to the version number of the messaging server that is being monitored. By default, none will be displayed as the Version. If you are monitoring a messaging server that is of a version below 6.0, you need not change the default value of this parameter. However, while monitoring version 6.0 or above, the exact version number needs to be explicitly mentioned against this parameter.

CounterRegistry

Enter the full path to the counter registry to use. By default, the path to the counter registry will be: <IPLANET_MESSAGING_SERVER_ROOT_DIR>/<SERVER_INSTANCE>/counter/counter. Here, SERVER_ROOT_DIR will be the value of the ServerRoot parameter above, and the SERVER_INSTANCE is the name of the instance of the messaging server specified during installation. For example, in Windows environments, the path specification can be: C:\iPlanet\Server5\msg-egtes\counter\counter, and in Unix environments, it can be: usr/iplanet/server5/msg-sun08/counter/counter.

Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Active connections

Indicates the number of active IMAP connections to the server.

Number

A high value for this measure indicates that a large number of IMAP connections are opened to the server.

Connections served

Indicates the rate of connections served by the IMAP server

Conns/Sec

A high value for this measure indicates that the IMAP service is functioning efficiently.

Indicates the rate of successful logins served by the IMAP server
