ImapTest States

By default imaptest runs through all the states in the order specified in the table below. Each command is run with the given probability. If it's not run, it skips to the next command and performs the same check for it. Only commands that are valid in the current connection state can be processed of course. Using "random" parameter will randomize the order of commands in "selected" state completely, so 1) randomized command is chosen and 2) probability check will determine if it's used or the next random command will be attempted.

States can be specified using full or short names. You specify the probabilities in percents, so for example list=30 means that LIST command is executed with 30% probability.

The second probability is mainly useful for APPEND, where it controls how often to append multiple messages with MULTIAPPEND extension, so for example append=80,30 means that APPEND command is executed with 80% probability, and after each appended message there's a 30% chance of the APPEND command continuing.

You can disable all except LOGIN, LOGOUT and SELECT states by giving "-" parameter. For example: ./imaptest - select=0 append=100,0 logout=0 will do nothing but a LOGIN followed by APPENDs.

UIDFETCH

UIDF

0

UID FETCH 1:* FLAGS - This is run only once per session. The probability specifies how likely the first time happens.

FETCH

Fetc

100

FETCH n:m (random fields) where n:m is a range with random start for 100 messages (or all messages if mailbox has less than 100 messages). Randomly fetched fields are: UID, FLAGS, ENVELOPE, INTERNALDATE, BODY, BODYSTRUCTURE and BODY.PEEK[HEADER.FIELDS (random headers)]. Random headers are: From, To, Cc, Subject, Message-ID, In-Reply-To, References, Delivered-To.

FETCH2

Fet2

100,30

FETCH n (BODY.PEEK[]) where n is a random message

SEARCH

Sear

0

SEARCH <random search query> where the query can contain multiple parameters, including ORs and parenthesis. It randomly choses among: SMALLER, LARGER, BEFORE, ON, SINCE, SENTBEFORE, SENTON, SENTSINCE, SUBJECT, TEXT, BODY

SORT

Sort

0

SORT (SUBJECT) US-ASCII for ALL or FLAGGED randomly

THREAD

Thre

0

THREAD REFERENCES US-ASCII ALL

COPY

Copy

33,5

COPY random number of messages

STORE

Stor

50

STORE <random-range> [+-]FLAGS[.SILENT] <random flags and keywords>. Only $Label1..5 are used as keywords. SILENT is used if checkpointing is disabled. \Deleted flags aren't set.

DELETE

Dele

100

STORE <random-range> +FLAGS[.SILENT] \Deleted

EXPUNGE

Expu

100

EXPUNGE

APPEND

Appe

100,5

APPEND messages to mailbox. MULTIAPPEND extension is used if possible. The counter shows number of APPEND commands, so with MULTIAPPEND it doesn't match the actual number of appended messages.

NOOP

Noop

0

NOOP command.

IDLE

Idle

0

IDLE command. The finishing DONE is sent before the next command. This doesn't add any extra waits/delays.

CHECK

Chec

0

LOGOUT command.

DISCONNECT

Disc

0

Disconnect without LOGOUT.

DELAY

Dela

0

random 0..999 millisecond delay

CHECKPOINT!

ChkP

0

Use checkpoint parameter to change this. The counter shows number of client connections successfully checkpointed
