Subject [jira] [Created] (COMDEV-295) Consider whether to extract mod_mbox statistics locally
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2018 14:47:00 GMT
Sebb created COMDEV-295:

             Summary: Consider whether to extract mod_mbox statistics locally
                 Key: COMDEV-295
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Reporter Tool
            Reporter: Sebb

At present the reporter tool uses the mailglomper script to extract information about the
number and timing of mails sent to each list.

To do this, it has to download the entire mailbox, even though it only needs the ^From_ lines.
Whilst the code attempts to avoid unnecessary downloads (by checking dates and sizes), for
busy mbox files there can be a lot of network traffic.

It might make sense for some initial data extraction to be done locally and cached in a file.

This could be done as part of updating the mod_mbox indexes.

For example, the script could extract just the ^From_ lines into a separate file and store
that alongside the .mbox file. Mailglomper would read the much abbreviated file instead.
