Alas, it's more complicated -- it's a SnapServer that's freezing up, 
we're working with Adaptec to try and fix it (seems to be some sort of 
java problem on device). I did an OS upgrade at 11pm last night, all was 
working well and then sometime after midnight it ate itself and froze 
the exported mounts. As a result, thousands of emails got 
deferred/queued (*) until I could bring the device back online.

So, until we get this issue resolved on the device, I need to monitor 
the exports from a single client (the backup server where they're all 
mounted, a CentOS4 box) and send an email/sms when things die.


(*) once again, exim saves the day. swiss army knife of the MTA world.
