A user script ‘nssftp.pl’ is added to support SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) monitoring. It is available in the current list of in-built NetScaler user monitors and is located in the /netscaler/monitors directory. The SFTP monitor uses the specified username and password to check if the file is present on the server.
To configure secure monitoring using SFTP by using the NetScaler command line
At the command prompt, type:
add lb monitor <monitorName> <type> -scriptName <string> -scriptArgs <string> -secure ( YES | NO )
To configure secure monitoring using SFTP by using the NetScaler GUI
1. Navigate to Traffic Management > Load Balancing > Monitors and in Type specify USER.
2. In Special Parameters, in Script Name, select nssftp.pl.
3. Specify the Script Arguments.
