ImapTest Examples

Basics:

imaptest host=127.0.0.1 port=143 user=testuser pass=testpass mbox=dovecot.mbox

Test IMAP server compliancy:

imaptest checkpoint=1
imaptest checkpoint=1 logout=0 expunge=10
imaptest checkpoint=1 rawlog no_pipelining
imaptest own_msgs expunge=5 logout=1
imaptest own_flags expunge=5 logout=1
imaptest logout=0 search=100 expunge=10 clients=1

If you want to do benchmarking, you can set it to run for specified amount of time, and you should also give random number generator the same seed every time:

imaptest seed=123 secs=300

If you want to test/benchmark only the login+logout speed, use:

imaptest - select=0

To create a lot of long-running clients doing STATUS and NOOPs:

imaptest clients=100 - logout=0 status=50 noop=50 delay=100

Benchmarking how fast messages can be saved:

imaptest - append=100,0 logout=0 msgs=10000000

To test copying messages:

imaptest copybox=Trash

By default LOGIN command is used. If you want to try AUTHENTICATE PLAIN:

imaptest auth=100

Run scripted tests from a given directory:

imaptest test=tests rawlog
