SSH

SSH checks allow you to monitor the SSH service either by checking to see if the port is open, or if a session can be established. SFTP sessions can also be monitored.

Control Panel Configuration 

You can add an SSH check by choosing the SSH card in the monitoring catalog.

Check Type 

  • SSH Port

  • SSH Session

  • SFTP Session

There are a number of other options to configure with SSH including the IP or FQDN you'll be checking, and from which location you would like the check to run. The check can run from any of our public monitoring nodes, or an OnSight vCollector if you have one set up.

For SFTP session checks, you also need to provide your login credentials and the file path for the SFTP location.

You can configure the Alert Timeline in the Thresholds tab and select the number of confirmation checks required to confirm an outage (we suggest keeping the default).

You can also set up thresholds for the check in the Thresholds tab if you want to be alerted if the response time takes longer than X seconds for more than X amount of time.

An SSH Session Check is a little more involved, and includes SSH Options in the Advanced tab, allowing you to select a username and password, and a command to execute after a successful login.

If you have any questions, please contact our support team.
