qmqp-source - multi-threaded QMQP test generator
qmqp-source [options] [inet:]host[:port]
qmqp-source [options] unix:pathname
qmqp-source connects to the named host and TCP port
(default 628) and sends one or more messages to it, either
sequentially or in parallel. The program speaks the QMQP
protocol. Connections can be made to UNIX-domain and IPv4
or IPv6 servers. IPv4 and IPv6 are the default.
Note: this is an unsupported test program. No attempt is
made to maintain compatibility between successive ver-
-4 Connect to the server with IPv4. This option has no
effect when Postfix is built without IPv6 support.
-6 Connect to the server with IPv6. This option is not
available when Postfix is built without IPv6 sup-
-c Display a running counter that is incremented each
time a delivery completes.
When a host sends RESET instead of SYN|ACK, try
count times before giving up. The default count is
1. Specify a larger count in order to work around a
problem with TCP/IP stacks that send RESET when the
listen queue is full.
Use the specified sender address (default:
Send length bytes as message payload. The length
includes the message headers.
Send the specified number of messages (default: 1).
Use the specified hostname or [address] in the
default sender and recipient addresses, instead of
the machine hostname.
Send the specified number of recipients per trans-
action (default: 1). Recipient names are generated
by prepending a number to the recipient address.
Run the specified number of QMQP sessions in paral-
lel (default: 1).
-t to Use the specified recipient address (default:
Wait for a random period of time 0 <= n <= interval
between messages. Suspending one thread does not
affect other delivery threads.
-v Make the program more verbose, for debugging pur-
Wait a fixed time between messages. Suspending one
thread does not affect other delivery threads.
