We use a lot of open source software at SmartFile. Therefore, when we have the chance, we like to give back to the community.

We recently implemented more detailed graphing and monitoring using Cacti and Nagios. If you are unfamiliar with these open source software packages, I would urge you to check them out as they are incredibly useful.

Today, we are happy to provide the a plugin for Cacti to monitor proftpd, the FTP server we use at SmartFile. The plugin allows Cacti to graph the number of users connected to the FTP server as well as the number of active uploads/downloads.

To see our posting in the Cacti forums which provides this plugin as well as instructions, please see the link below.


We will use this blog to release other contributions from time to time.
