       ftp - Configures a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) monitor.

       gtm monitor

       Configure the ftp component within the gtm monitor module using the syntax in the following sections.

	create ftp [name]
	modify ftp [name]
	    debug [no | yes]
	    defaults-from [name]
	    description [string]
	    destination [ [ ipv4 address[:port] ] | [ ipv6 address[.port] ] ]
	    filename [ [filename] | none]
	    ignore-down-response [enabled | disabled]
	    interval [integer]
	    mode [passive | port]
	    password [none | [password] ]
	    probe-timeout [integer]
	    timeout [integer]
	    username [name]

	edit ftp [ [ [name] | [glob] | [regex] ] ... ]

	list ftp
	list ftp [ [ [name] | [glob] | [regex] ] ... ]
	show running-config ftp
	show running-config ftp [ [ [name] | [glob] | [regex] ] ... ]

	delete ftp [name]

       Note: You cannot delete default monitors.

       You can use the ftp component to configure a custom monitor, or you can use the default FTP monitor that the Global Traffic
       Manager provides. This type of monitor verifies the FTP service by attempting to download a specific file to the /var/tmp
       directory on the system. Once downloaded successfully, the file is not saved.

       create ftp my_ftp defaults-from ftp

       Creates a monitor named my_ftp that inherits properties from the default FTP monitor.

       list ftp

       Displays the properties of all of the FTP monitors.

	    Specifies whether the monitor sends error messages and additional information to a log file created and labeled
	    specifically for this monitor. You can use the log information to help diagnose and troubleshoot unsuccessful health

	    The default value is no. The options are:

	    no	 Specifies that the system does not redirect error messages and additional information related to this monitor.

	    yes  Specifies that the system redirects error messages and additional information to the
		 /var/log/monitors/--.log file.

	    Specifies the name of the monitor from which you want your custom monitor to inherit settings. The default value is

	    User defined description.

	    Specifies the IP address and service port of the resource that is the destination of this monitor. The default value
	    is *:*.

	    Possible values are:

	    *:*  Specifies to perform a health check on the address and port supplied by a pool member.

		 Specifies to perform a health check on the server with the IP address supplied by the pool member and the port
		 you specify.

	    IP address:port
		 Specifies to mark a pool member up or down based on the response of the server at the IP address and port you

	    Specifies the full path and file name of the file that the system attempts to download. The health check is successful
	    if the system can download the file. The default value is none.

       glob Displays the items that match the glob expression. See help glob for a description of glob expression syntax.

	    Specifies whether the monitor ignores a down response from the system it is monitoring. The default value is disabled.

	    Specifies the frequency at which the system issues the monitor check. The default value is 10 seconds.

       mode Specifies the data transfer process (DTP) mode. The default value is passive. The options are:

		 Specifies that the monitor sends a data transfer request to the FTP server. When the FTP server receives the
		 request, the FTP server then starts and establishes the data connection.

	    port Specifies that the monitor starts and establishes the data connection with the FTP server.

       name Specifies a unique name for the component. This option is required for the commands create, delete, and modify.

	    Specifies the password, if the monitored target requires authentication. The default value is none.

	    Displays the administrative partition within which the component resides.

	    Specifies the number of seconds after which the BIG-IP(r) system times out the probe request to the BIG-IP system. The
	    default value is 5 seconds.

	    Displays the items that match the regular expression. The regular expression must be preceded by an at sign (@[regular
	    expression]) to indicate that the identifier is a regular expression. See help regex for a description of regular
	    expression syntax.

	    Specifies the number of seconds the target has in which to respond to the monitor request. The default value is 31

	    If the target responds within the set time period, it is considered up. If the target does not respond within the set
	    time period, it is considered down. Also, if the target responds with a RESET packet, the system immediately flags the
	    target as down without waiting for the timeout interval to expire.

	    Specifies the username, if the monitored target requires authentication. The default value is none.
