Learn How to Measure and Alert on Metrics for Your FTP Servers
About the FTP Event Monitor

The FTP Event Monitor keeps track of your FTP servers and makes sure they're up and running. It does this by performing file transfer requests. It can also detect FTP servers with anonymous access enabled.

Getting Started

To begin, select the FTP server you want the event monitor to connect to. Then, select the level of alert you want to receive if the event monitor cannot connect to your network device.

Connection Settings

FTP Event Monitor Settings

The first option lets you decide whether or not server responses are included in the event monitor's notification text. After that, choose a level of alert to receive in the case that anonymous access is disabled or enabled.

Server Response and Access Settings

There is also an option that allows you to receive an alert if login fails for a specific user. Enter the username and password for that user and choose a level of alert to receive if the login fails.

Login Settings

The event monitor can also check to make sure specified files either exist or do not exist. Select a level of alert to receive in each case.

File Presence Settings

The final option enables you to choose the maximum amount of time the event monitor will wait for a response from the FTP server before giving up. Enter an amount of time in milliseconds.
