SFTP monitoring

Increase SFTP security

The SFTP monitor type can check the availability of your servers and report any down time. When problems occur, we'll notify you right away.

File transfer monitoring

Connect, test and download

With an SFTP monitor, you can connect to your SFTP server with a username and password, test if files exist (or not exist) and even perform a file download.

SFTP server monitoring

External SFTP monitoring

Uptrends externally monitors your server outside of the firewall to ensure reliability. We help you detect and diagnose errors, and provide detailed error logs.

Availability and performance security.

With over 225 global checkpoints monitoring your SFTP, DNS, and SSL Certificates, we can let you know when and where a problem occurs.

Diagnose errors with our long, detailed error logs. You can see uptime, page load time, and error reports for any defined time period you wish.

No software installation

Uptrends operates from the cloud, so there's no software to install. Just enter your server info and credentials, and go!

SFTP server availability

Connect to an SFTP server with a username and password, and receive errors when your SFTP server is not available.

File checking

Test if a file does or does not exist on your SFTP server, to ensure everything's still running like it's supposed to.

File downloading

Verify that downloading your files always works, by letting Uptrends download a file with a maximum size of 1MB.

Many monitoring protocols

Uptrends is able to monitor a lot of different protocols, such as Http(s), DNS, Ping, Connect, FTP, MySQL, SQL Server, Webservices, SMTP, POP3, and IMAP.

If we detect a complete failure, we’ll check it from another location just to be sure. With Uptrends, you can schedule maintenance periods and define your own escalation settings for when a problem does occur.
