The FTP Server monitor can watch an FTP server on a monitored computer to ensure it is up and running. This is accomplished by connecting to the server, optionally using credentials that you supply.
Above you can see the configuration dialog for configuring the FTP Server monitor. The FTP server name is taken from the server that the monitor is attached to. An optional username and password can be entered.
SSL connections (FTPS) are supported. If you don't know which setting to use, select "Don't Know" and press the Test button. Each option will be tried and the one that works will be selected for you automatically.
When you press the Test button, the FTP settings are sent to the monitoring service (Central Monitoring Service or Satellite) and are tried there. The test results will be sent back and displayed.
The FTP Server can create reports based on the time to connect to the FTP server. This data can be charted as well as output in .CSV or HTML tabular form. In addition, you can define what 'up' means and create an uptime report showing a percentage of uptime over a given time period.
