How can I find out how to figure out how long it takes for an SMS to come into nowsms and then leave nowsms

I have looked at the in and out logs and allot of the messages dont match up

Im trying to determine an SLA X number of seconds to come in and leave the nowsms server

I can provide logs if needed

Hi Clint,

The timing is going to be dependent largely on the speed of the outbound connection. (Especially as contrasted with the speed at which clients are submitting messages into the queue.)

SMSWEB-yyyymmdd.LOG records when a client submits a message. (Even if the client was using SMPP.)

The IDs recorded in that log should correlate with SMSOUT-yyyymmdd.LOG.

(SMSIN-yyyymmdd.LOG records messages that come in via an SMSC, routing to 2-way commands or a client connection. It is more difficult to correlate with other logs.)

When using async SMPP, there is some slight buffering of the log recording so that the logging does not slow down transmission.

I hope that helps.
