FTP Sensor

From AlertFox Website Monitoring
Jump to: navigation, search

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is used on the Internet for exchanging files (e.g., to upload content to a webpage or to download files from a server).

The FTP sensor monitors the FTP server's availability and response time. It reports an error if the response time is greater than the specified timeout value or if the server does not respond at all.
