address_metrics_cleanse_interval — the interval for refreshing address metrics


Address_Metrics_Cleanse_Interval = 3600


Address metrics store data on the quality of service to a particular target host from a particular binding; data such as the time since the last failure, and how long it takes to connect and to deliver a message. Address metrics are used to determine which of a domain's MXs to open more connections to. The address_metrics_cleanse_interval option controls how often stale entries are cleaned up. Normally this option does not need to be changed.

The default value for this option is 3600 seconds.


Address_Metrics_Cleanse_Interval is valid in the global scope.
