Hello Everyone,
I am new to SMS Server Tools 3 and to this forum - my name is Lucas.
First of all I'd like to thank to the Author for this great piece of software. It's working like a charm and extremely easy to configure :)

Second, I'd like to add sth about performance - I am using SMS3 only for receiving SMS, so I configured 450! modems on old Core2Duo server and it's working really well (normally load is like 0.50-1.00)!!! Despite the fact this server is running icinga1 with monitoring 100 services too :)

My question is:
Is there a possibility to make SMS3 fetch sms periodically? Like 1 time for an hour? And if yes, would it be a way to fetch them manually?

Thanks for choosing this software!

There is a global setting delaytime available. If you set it to 3600, modems are polled once per hour.

Manual fetching can be done by sending a signal CONT to the modem process.

As the delaytime setting is global, it is the same for all modems. Do you think that it could be useful if this setting could be done for each modem? I could add a modem setting to the next version.

Another thing, as your system has very large number of modems, could it be useful if delaytime is randomized when each process is started, meaning that later they do not cause server load at the same time?

Thank you, for such quick response.
I think both of your ideas would be great to commit.
Randomizing delaytime needs no explanation, it would be just great in order to avoid high peak load.
And about setting delaytime for each modem - I think that also may become handy - still, for me and those who use numerous modems randomizing can be real life-saver :D

Please take a look at the 3.1.18 which is released now.
