NAME

Mail::MtPolicyd::Plugin::Accounting - mtpolicyd plugin for accounting in sql tables

VERSION

version 2.03

SYNOPSIS

  <Plugin acct-clients>
    module = "Accounting"
    # per ip and user
    fields = "client_address,sasl_username"
    # statistics per month
    time_pattern = "%Y-%m"
    table_prefix = "acct_"
  </Plugin>

This will create a table acct_client_address and a table acct_sasl_username.

If a request is received containing the field the plugin will update the row in the fields table. The key is the fields value(ip or username) and the time string build from the time_pattern.

For each key the following counters are stored:

  * count
  * count_rcpt (count per recipient)
  * size
  * size_rcpt  (size * recipients)

The resulting tables will look like:

  mysql> select * from acct_client_address;
  +----+--------------+---------+-------+------------+--------+-----------+
  | id | key          | time    | count | count_rcpt | size   | size_rcpt |
  +----+--------------+---------+-------+------------+--------+-----------+
  |  1 | 192.168.0.1  | 2014-12 |    11 |         11 | 147081 |    147081 |
  |  2 | 192.168.1.1  | 2014-12 |     1 |          1 |  13371 |     13371 |
  | 12 | 192.168.2.1  | 2014-12 |    10 |        100 | 133710 |   1337100 |
