FTP Monitoring Sensor

FTP Performance Graph The FTP sensor provides performance and availability monitoring of your target FTP server. Upon establishing an FTP connection, the sensor verifies that your target server responds with the correct greeting and status code.

Optionally, it will also attempt to authenticate against your server using the supplied username and password credentials.

TCP Port
Specifies the TCP port that the monitored FTP server is running on. Defaults to 21.

Timeout
Number of seconds after which we consider the FTP server to have failed if no response is received. Default is 15 seconds.
