ActiveXperts solution to monitor SFTP servers
SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) allows secure network file transfer over an insecure network, such as the Internet.
The Secure File Transfer Protocol is an extension to the SSH version 2.0 protocol. Most SSH server implementations will also allow for SFTP logins. SFTP is the secure successor to SFTP.
An SFTP check takes the following parameters:
- Host - Hostname or IP address of the remote SFTP server;
- Port - Port of the SFTP daemon on the remote SFTP host. Default: port 22;
- Account - Account used to access the SFTP server;
- Password - Password to authenticate to the SFTP server. If omitted, you must set a valid Private Key File;
- Private Key File - Private Key File to authenticate to the SFTP server. If omitted, you must set a valid Password;
- Accept Host Key - Specifies whether to accept an unknown or changed host key;
- Check Connectivity / Check File Existence - If you want to check availability only, you should select 'Check Connectivity' here. If you want to check for existence of a particular file, you must select 'Check File Existence';
- File (Full Path) - The file you want to check;
- Pattern should match / Pattern should not match - If the pattern is matched, then the result of the check can be either success or error./li>
