What do the icons in the Session History tab mean?
Posted by - NA -, Last modified by Said Khammar on 06 June 2014 09:25 AM

There are three colors and two letters which can be shown in icons in the Session History.

 

 

S means the Server session (Icewarp acts as receiver)

C means the Client session (Icewarp acts as sender)

Yellow denotes an Active session

Green denotes a Success

Red denotes a Failed session

You can view the commands being sent to the server and also the responses. If you have the service logging on, you can double click on the particular session and the whole history of the session protocol (log) will be displayed or can be saved into a file.

 

Server session

This type of session means that Icewarp Mail Server acts as Server in the Client/Server model. In other words, Icewarp Mail Server is the receiver of a message in this case. It can occur when:

  • a client wants to send a message through the Icewarp Mail Server
  • another server sends a message to Icewarp Mail Server because it is e.g. for users on Icewarp Mail Server

SYSTEM [00000F6C] Thu, 22 Apr 2004 22:01:51 +0200 Client session Disconnected

This is a session where Icewarp Mail Server sends along the message which was received in previous Server session.

 

Important notes

Session history is stored just in the service memory. Only the last 100 sessions are stored in the memory, this memory is cleared with every single restart – this applies for all the services except for WebClient. WebClient runs PHP sessions and only the ones which are not active anymore are visible in the history.

For WebClient, the history shows all sessions which were not properly closed with a logout – so the session file exists in php\temp and because of this file, the entry shows up in history.

Also note that if you close WebClient by closing the browser, the corresponding session remains active for 15 minutes after browser shutdown and then shifts into history.
