Thanks! I released it yesterday, with instructions sent to the mailing
I have added your request to the TODO list. Right now it's not possible
because I'm not using /var/log/maillog for creating the graphs. I do
intend to use the maillog at some point, but I feel I need to add data
summary caching to the application so you aren't scanning the ENTIRE
maillog each time you want to display graphs.
What I intend to do to fulfill this request (in order):
1. Add data caching for summary data so I don't have to go back to the
raw data for each graph.
2. Switch graph engine to work off of the /var/log/maillog file.
3. Collect additional summary statistics from /var/log/maillog regarding
total sent messages.
4. Add option to graphdefang to display total sent statistics on charts.
