SMTP Monitor

This SAM component monitor tests the ability of an SMTP server to accept incoming connections and respond with the correct code.

Statistic

This component monitor does not compute a statistic.

Field descriptions

Description

A default description of the monitor. You can override the default description by adding to or replacing the text, which is automatically saved. The variable to access this field is ${UserDescription}.

Changing the default description to specify what will be monitored can be helpful when receiving alerts and notifications later.

Enable Component

Determines whether the component is enabled. Disabling the component leaves it in the application in a deactivated state not influencing either SolarWinds SAM application availability or status.

Port Number

The port number used for SMTP connections. The default value is 25. For Secure SMTP (SSMTP), use port 465.

Response Time Threshold

Set the threshold conditions based on the response time. The response time is the time in milliseconds it takes SolarWinds SAM to determine that a component is not Down and to retrieve any statistical data. See Application Monitor Thresholds for details.

User Notes

Add notes for easy reference. You can access this field by using the variable, ${UserNotes}.
