I'm trying to monitor the size of a file via ftp. Something similar to the "File" sensor, my issue is that SMB is not an option for the version of OS we are working with. This is what I'm trying to accomplish:

1. log into the FTP 2. check the size of /home/test/file.txt 3. PRTG display current file size

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Jorge

There is no sensor which comes with PRTG offering this kind of monitoring. But you can program a script and run it through the Exe/Script sensor (if you use a Windows script) or through the SSH Script sensor (if you run the script on an according machine.)
