Windows 2008 R2 - 2012 FTP Service

This template assesses the status and overall of services and performance of a Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 – 2012 FTP service.

Prerequisites

WMI access to the target server.

Credentials

Windows Administrator on the target server.

Monitored Components

For details on monitors, see SAM Component Monitor Types.

You should manually enter thresholds for component monitors according to your requirements.

Microsoft FTP Service

This monitor returns CPU and memory usage for the Microsoft FTP Service, which enables this server to be a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server. If this service is stopped, the server cannot function as an FTP server. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

FTP User Experience Monitor

This component monitor tests the ability of an FTP server to accept an incoming session, process the user login, and then transmit the specified file to the SAM server. After receiving the file, SAM performs a file integrity test comparing the MD5 checksum of the downloaded file against a previously generated checksum. If the checksums match, the component monitor reports its status as up.

This monitor should be properly configured before using it on the target FTP server. By default this monitor is disabled.

Bytes Received/sec

This monitor returns the number of bytes received per second by the FTP service.

Bytes Sent/sec

This monitor returns the number of bytes sent per second by the FTP service.

Current Anonymous Users

This monitor returns the number of users who currently have an anonymous connection using the FTP service.

Current Connections

This monitor returns the current number of connections established with the FTP service.

Current Non-Anonymous Users
