Network Speed Monitor Template

The Network Speed Monitor enables you to monitor data transfer rates between two hosts using either Windows Shares, SFTP or FTP/S. This template is typically used to monitor SFTP and FTP/S server availability, verify network speed and monitor network performance.

How to configure the Network Speed Monitor Template:

  • From the Menu Bar, select File | New. The Create New Object View displays.
  • From the Create New Object View, expand Templates | Network and Application Monitors then select Network Speed Monitor. The New Template Properties View displays.
  • The Template Properties view contains 3 tabs.

The Options Tab

  • Use the Server drop-down to select the remote host you want to monitor.
    Once selected, the server is automatically assigned to this template.
  • Use the Upload check box to test upload speed.
  • Use the Upload filename text box to select the local file to upload.
  • Use the Destination directory of filename to select the remote file destination and optionally the filename.
    If no filename is specified, the local filename is saved to the specified path.
  • Use the Delete file when complete to configure Server Manager to delete the remote uploaded file once the monitor has completed.
  • Use the Download check box to test download speed.
  • Use the Download filename text box to select the remote file to download.
    If the file does not already exist, manually type the filename.
  • Use the Destination directory of filename to select the local file destination and optionally the filename.
    If no filename is specified, the remote filename is saved to the specified path.
  • Use the Delete file when complete to configure Server Manager to delete the locally downloaded file once the monitor has completed.
  • Use the Warning trigger and Critical trigger controls to configure the trigger thresholds.
