if this is about monitoring (rather than just collecting statistics):
At some time I had set up a system that would simply send mail via the server and receive
it back. If that did not happen (within reasonable time), something might be wrong.

Basically the system was 4 separate components (smtp, pop/imap, spam filtering, and a
database holding everything together). It occasionally happened that things got stuck, so
could, perhaps, successfully connect to smtp ... but smtp accumulated a pile of messages
that SA did not want to process
