howto monitor E-mail Volume

May 10, 2023

I want to monitor the E-mail Volume as it is shown in the Dashboard (Mails/min). I don't find this numbers in the API (/statistics ...). Any ideas how/where I can get Mails/min else?

Thanks for the answer, the counters in /statistics/mailcount where also my first guess, but they sum up on hours.
I've found it now in /statistics/recent e.g. to get the mails incoming in the last 5 minutes:
pmgsh get /statistics/recent --timespan 300 --hours 1 | jq ".[11].count_in"
