Below is an example of data from applTable (mib-18.104.22.168).
mtaTable: mtaReceivedMessages.1 = 172778 mtaStoredMessages.1 = 19 mtaTransmittedMessages.1 = 172815 mtaReceivedVolume.1 = 3817744 mtaStoredVolume.1 = 34 mtaTransmittedVolume.1 = 3791155 mtaReceivedRecipients.1 = 190055 mtaStoredRecipients.1 = 21 mtaTransmittedRecipients.1 = 3791134 mtaSuccessfulConvertedMessages.1 = 0 (1) mtaFailedConvertedMessages.1 = 0 mtaLoopsDetected.1 = 0 (2)
The .x suffix (.1) provides the row number for this application in the applTable. In this example, .1 indicates this data is for the first application in the applTable. Thus, this is data on the MTA.
Only takes on non-zero values for the conversion channel.
Counts the number of .HELD message files currently stored in the MTA’s message queues.
If mtaLoopsDetected is not zero, then there is a looping mail problem. Locate and diagnose the .HELD files in the MTA queue to resolve the problem.
If the system does virus scanning with a conversion channel and rejects infected messages, then mtaSuccessfulConvertedMessages will give a count of infected messages in addition to other conversion failures.
