Postfix manual - qmgr(8)

QMGR(8) QMGR(8) NAME qmgr - Postfix queue manager SYNOPSIS qmgr [generic Postfix daemon options] DESCRIPTION The qmgr(8) daemon awaits the arrival of incoming mail and arranges for its delivery via Postfix delivery processes. The actual mail routing strategy is delegated to the triv- ial-rewrite(8) daemon. This program expects to be run from the master(8) process manager. Mail addressed to the local double-bounce address is logged and discarded. This stops potential loops caused by undeliverable bounce notifications. MAIL QUEUES The qmgr(8) daemon maintains the following queues: incoming Inbound mail from the network, or mail picked up by the local pickup(8) daemon from the maildrop direc- tory. active Messages that the queue manager has opened for delivery. Only a limited number of messages is allowed to enter the active queue (leaky bucket strategy, for a fixed delivery rate). deferred Mail that could not be delivered upon the first attempt. The queue manager implements exponential backoff by doubling the time between delivery attempts. corrupt Unreadable or damaged queue files are moved here for inspection. hold Messages that are kept "on hold" are kept here until someone sets them free. DELIVERY STATUS REPORTS The qmgr(8) daemon keeps an eye on per-message delivery status reports in the following directories. Each status report file has the same name as the corresponding message file: bounce Per-recipient status information about why mail is bounced. These files are maintained by the bounce(8) daemon. defer Per-recipient status information about why mail is delayed. These files are maintained by the defer(8) daemon. trace Per-recipient status information as requested with the Postfix "sendmail -v" or "sendmail -bv" com- mand. These files are maintained by the trace(8) daemon. The qmgr(8) daemon is responsible for asking the bounce(8), defer(8) or trace(8) daemons to send delivery reports. STRATEGIES The queue manager implements a variety of strategies for either opening queue files (input) or for message delivery (output). leaky bucket This strategy limits the number of messages in the active queue and prevents the queue manager from running out of memory under heavy load. fairness When the active queue has room, the queue manager takes one message from the incoming queue and one from the deferred queue. This prevents a large mail backlog from blocking the delivery of new mail. slow start This strategy eliminates "thundering herd" problems by slowly adjusting the number of parallel deliver- ies to the same destination. round robin The queue manager sorts delivery requests by desti- nation. Round-robin selection prevents one desti- nation from dominating deliveries to other destina- tions. exponential backoff Mail that cannot be delivered upon the first attempt is deferred. The time interval between delivery attempts is doubled after each attempt. destination status cache The queue manager avoids unnecessary delivery attempts by maintaining a short-term, in-memory list of unreachable destinations. preemptive message scheduling The queue manager attempts to minimize the average per-recipient delay while still preserving the cor- rect per-message delays, using a sophisticated pre- emptive message scheduling. TRIGGERS On an idle system, the queue manager waits for the arrival of trigger events, or it waits for a timer to go off. A trigger is a one-byte message. Depending on the message received, the queue manager performs one of the following actions (the message is followed by the symbolic constant used internally by the software): D (QMGR_REQ_SCAN_DEFERRED) Start a deferred queue scan. If a deferred queue scan is already in progress, that scan will be restarted as soon as it finishes. I (QMGR_REQ_SCAN_INCOMING) Start an incoming queue scan. If an incoming queue scan is already in progress, that scan will be restarted as soon as it finishes. A (QMGR_REQ_SCAN_ALL) Ignore deferred queue file time stamps. The request affects the next deferred queue scan. F (QMGR_REQ_FLUSH_DEAD) Purge all information about dead transports and destinations. W (TRIGGER_REQ_WAKEUP) Wakeup call, This is used by the master server to instantiate servers that should not go away for- ever. The action is to start an incoming queue scan. The qmgr(8) daemon reads an entire buffer worth of trig- gers. Multiple identical trigger requests are collapsed into one, and trigger requests are sorted so that A and F precede D and I. Thus, in order to force a deferred queue run, one would request A F D; in order to notify the queue manager of the arrival of new mail one would request I. STANDARDS None. The qmgr(8) daemon does not interact with the out- side world. SECURITY The qmgr(8) daemon is not security sensitive. It reads single-character messages from untrusted local users, and thus may be susceptible to denial of service attacks. The qmgr(8) daemon does not talk to the outside world, and it can be run at fixed low privilege in a chrooted environ- ment. DIAGNOSTICS Problems and transactions are logged to the syslog daemon. Corrupted message files are saved to the corrupt queue for further inspection. Depending on the setting of the notify_classes parameter, the postmaster is notified of bounces and of other trou- ble. BUGS A single queue manager process has to compete for disk access with multiple front-end processes such as cleanup(8). A sudden burst of inbound mail can negatively impact outbound delivery rates. CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS Changes to main.cf are not picked up automatically as qmgr(8) is a persistent process. Use the "postfix reload" command after a configuration change. The text below provides only a parameter summary. See postconf(5) for more details including examples. In the text below, transport is the first field in a mas- ter.cf entry.
