Monitoring Your Security Strategy

Monitoring your server is an important part of your security strategy. To identify attacks on your system, monitor message queue size, CPU utilization, disk availability, and network utilization. Unusual growth in the message queue size or reduced server response time may identify some of these attacks on MTA relays. Also, investigate unusual system load patterns and unusual connections. Review logs on a daily basis for any unusual activity.
