The Open Port Monitor can be set to automate and manage availability of any port at regular intervals to check for its availability. The open port monitor is very useful in situations where you want to make sure a port is available 24x7. The automated open port is a simple yet highly effective tool in achieving this. It saves you the time you would take to manually determine the status of a port as well as provide you with a report showing the history of its availability.
Please refer to the chapter Managing Monitors for the common settings required.
The Options specific to the Open Port monitor are:
Port (integer): This is the port which we want to check if one can connect to it at regular intervals.
Time out (sec) (integer): This is the time out in seconds for which it should wait before sending an alert that the port cannot be connected to.
