What protocols does your mail server provide and on which TCP ports? For example:

  • Is the server reachable with ping (ICMP)?
  • POP3 / POP3S
  • Do you have a web interface?

For each protocol, there is a monitor in OpenNMS which is configured in "Pollerd" and his configuration file poller-configuration.xml. The configuration for monitors you can find here: http://docs.opennms.org/opennms/releases/20.0.0/guide-admin/guide-admin.html#ga-service-monitors


If you need a little bit more conceptional information how service monitoring works, have a look at http://docs.opennms.org/opennms/releases/20.0.0/guide-user/#gu-service-assurance.


Hope this helps.

Well, I guess my question wasn't rather clear ^^

I want to know if, in this thing : http://imgur.com/a/bUbxE  , there is a category for add email servers. Just a single "yes" or "no" will be sufficient, and if yes, how to do it.
