FTP Monitor

The FTP Monitor is a SAM component monitor that is also available as a SAM template that can test the ability of an FTP server to accept incoming sessions and respond with the correct codes.


This component monitor does not compute a statistic.

Field descriptions


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 if a component is enabled. Disabling a component leaves it in the application as deactivated and does not influence application availability or status, as displayed in the Orion Web Console.

Port Number

The port number used for FTP sessions. The default value is 21.

Response Time Threshold

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

User Notes

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