How FTP server monitoring works?
FTP server monitor helps you to monitor critical metrics such as server availability, round-trip-time, average response time, file upload time, file download time and response time from various locations across the globe. Once you add your FTP server for monitoring, Site24x7 will use a test file to check the upload and download functions as well as the availability of your FTP server.
A FTP server will be reported unavailable if
- The FTP server is not accessible.
- The username/password is invalid in the case of authenticated FTP servers.
- Response time crosses your specified threshold.
- File upload or download time crosses your specified threshold.
Site24x7 also provide you a comprehensive reports section where you can view, analyze and compare your FTP performance for a given period of time. These reports can be exported as CSV, Email, PDF or RSS for further analysis and study.
