gammu-smsd-run - documentation for RunOnReceive directive
Gammu SMSD can be configured by RunOnReceive directive (see
gammu-smsdrc(5) for details) to run defined program after receiving
This parameter is executed through shell, so you might need to escape
some special characters and you can include any number of parameters.
Additionally parameters with identifiers of received messages are
appended to the command line. The identifiers depend on used service
backend, typically it is ID of inserted row for database backends or
file name for file based backends.
Gammu SMSD waits for the script to terminate. If you make some time
consuming there, it will make SMSD not receive new messages. However to
limit breakage from this situation, the waiting time is limited to two
minutes. After this time SMSD will continue in normal operation and
might execute your script again.
Program is executed with environment which contains lot of information
about the message. You can use it together with NULL service (see
gammu-smsd-null(7)) to implement completely own processing of messages.
Number of physical messages received.
Number of decoded message parts.
Per message variables
The variables further described as SMS_1_... are generated for each
physical message, where 1 is replaced by current number of message.
Class of message.
Message text. Text is not available for 8-bit binary messages.
Per part variables
The variables further described as DECODED_1_... are generated for each
message part, where 1 is replaced by current number of part. Set are
only those variables whose content is present in the message.
Decoded long message text.
Sender of MMS indication message.
title of MMS indication message.
Address (URL) of MMS from MMS indication message.
Size of MMS as specified in MMS indication message.
Passing MMS indication parameters to external program
Following script (if used as RunOnReceive handler) will write
information about each received MMS indication to the log file. Just
replace echo command with your own program to do custom processing.
if [ $DECODED_PARTS -eq 0 ] ; then
# No decoded parts, nothing to process
if [ "$DECODED_1_MMS_ADDRESS" ] ; then
echo "$DECODED_1_MMS_ADDRESS" "$DECODED_1_MMS_SENDER" "$DECODED_1_MMS_TITLE" >> /tmp/smsd-mms.log
