The Reports tab allows you to generate and view a variety of reports on PureMessage performance, operations, and message-processing statistics that are displayed as graphs and tables. Reports can be exported to CSV format, scheduled for automatic generation, and emailed to specified recipients.
To use these reporting features, the PostgreSQL database must be enabled. Several programs are used to populate some database tables prior to initial use. Others consume report data from PureMessage log files and store the data in the PostgreSQL database.
The Reports: Summary (default) page displays three of the key PureMessage reports:
- Top Spam Relays: The top relays by number of spam messages received from them.
- Message Categorizations: The number of messages detected as spam, virus or other (neither virus nor spam). If PureMessage determines that a message contains spam and also contains a virus, the message counts toward the virus total only. A message is marked as being spam if its spam probability score is 50% or greater by default.
- Quarantine Size: The current size (in kilobytes) of local and central quarantines. It also summarizes new messages added, helping you understand the growth rate of your quarantine.
