Check that the stored process is running. stored creates and updates a pid file in msg-svr-base/data/proc called store. The pid file shows an init state when recovering and a ready state when ready. For example:
231: cat store 28250 ready
The number on the first line is the process ID of stored.
232: ps -eaf | grep stored inetuser 28250 1 0 Jan 05 ? 8:44 /opt/SUNWmsgsr/lib/stored -d
Check for log file build up in msg-svr-base/store/mboxlist. Note that not every log file build up is caused by direct stored problems. Log files may also build up if imapd dies or there is a database problem.
Check the timestamp on the following files in msg-svr-base/config:
stored.ckp - Touched when attempt at checkpointing is made. Should get time stamped every 1 minute stored.lcu - Touched at every db log cleanup. Should get time stamped every 5 minutes stored.per - Touched at every spawn of peruser db writeout. Should get time stamped every 60 minutes
Check for stored messages in the default log file msg-svr-base/log/default/default
Can be monitored with watcher and msprobe. See 4.5 Automatic Restart of Failed or Unresponsive Services and 27.8.9 Monitoring Using msprobe and watcher Functions.
