I'm trying to figure out how to monitor the overall activities of a
ListProc site. For example, I'd like to be able to see a listing of the
weekly numbers of subscribers and of postings for all lists. I'd also like
to be able to ask questions like "Which list are moderated?" And I'd like
to be able to tell whenever a list manager changes, so that I can find out
whether the new manager has a clue.
The only way I can figure out to do this with ListProc is a major kludge --
I'm setting up an Access database on a PC that will query ListProc via
e-mail commands to find out the current settings for each list, the list
owners, and the traffic statistics (which are collected by a little script
someone wrote). Then I can use Access queries to see what's going on.
Anyone have a better idea?
