Monitor SFTP availability and performance. Visualize the data as Synthetic tests in Dynatrace.
This is an ActiveGate extension which can connect to a remote host and provide insights into the availability and performance of SFTP connections.
The data is then reported to Dynatrace as third party Synthetic tests which means you can analyze outages and performance over time.
This extension has been developed with Dynatrace Extension Framework 1.0. This means that the .zip archive you have been provided with must be uploaded and extracted to the plugin_deployment folder of all ActiveGates that should run it.
By default this is found:
The same .zip archive must also be uploaded to Dynatrace. In the Dynatrace UI, go to Settings > Monitored technologies > Custom extensions and click the Upload extension button.
The extension will appear in the list below:
Once this is visible, you can click on the extension name and begin configuration.
Once the extension has been deployed, endpoints can be configured for carrying out the SFTP checks.
Create and read synthetic monitors, locations, and nodes
If the remote host is only reachable throu a proxy, this can be added using:
Once the extension is successfully running, you can explore tests from the Synthetic menu. These are automatically created using the hostname and port of the endpoint.
Outages are automatically signalled by Dynatrace, and in depth metrics are available same as for other synthetic tests. These can be found easily by typing "synthetic.external" in the Metrics menu.
