ManageEngine Applications Manager's FTP monitoring provides an array of features which keeps track of service availability and performance of your FTP/SFTP services. This allows you to instantly detect performance issues and take corrective action before it affects customer end-user performance, and ensure that the critical FTP/SFTP services are up and running at all times.
Applications Manager's FTP monitoring tool provides technical acuity into the performance of your service protocols in the form of graphs and reports for easy comprehension. Our FTP monitor tracks:
Applications Manager makes it easier to glance through the overall health and availability of your FTP/SFTP services within a single dashboard panel. This comes in handy when monitoring multiple protocols.
FTP management can never be complete without a proper alerting system in place. With Applications Manager, monitor FTP services by configuring an alarm that will go off whenever a performance metric breaches the threshold. Alerts can be sent via SMS, email or even made to trigger an action.
In addition, technicians can be assigned to each FTP alarm message for error troubleshooting. If left unattended, the FTP monitor will escalate the alarm until the issue is addressed.
Avail reports on FTP and SFTP server performance over a given period of time to understand its efficiency, analyze the areas that need optimizing, and make the necessary improvements. Our report provides historical data on MTTR (Mean Time To Repair), MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures), downtime, uptime, unmanaged and maintenance statistics which are crucial elements to track when you monitor FTP server.
Applications Manager also supports SFTP monitoring where you can monitor SSH files and the time it takes to connect and login. SFTP traffic can also be monitored with the aid of performance parameters such as file transfer rate, upload, and download transaction rates.

FTP monitoring is performed to ensure constant availability and responsiveness of FTP servers and protocols. By tracking FTP file changes, connection time, and file transfer statistics, an FTP performance monitoring tool provides instant alerts whenever a threshold is breached.
Using a tool for FTP monitoring like Applications Manager, businesses can decrease the number of issues and anomalies in the system by proactively monitoring the key metrics that influence performance. It also reduces downtime and the time to troubleshoot issues with instantaneous and intelligent alerts.
Applications Manager's FTP monitoring tests the availability of FTP services by transferring files across the FTP server and uses metrics such as response time, file transfer rate, and transaction rate to determine its performance factor.
FTP server monitoring works by uploading or downloading files across the FTP server to determine its accessibility. Unavailability of an FTP server is indicated whenever the file transfer rate or response rate crosses the acceptable threshold margins.
