How do FTP and SFTP monitors work in ASM?

Environment:
Any
Answer:

The FTP and SFTP monitors work in the same manner, except the SFTP monitor uses SSL.

They will:

 - Connect over TCP (IPv4 or 6).
 - Log in with the credentials provided.
 - Set up a SSL connection if requested to so do (SFTP).
 - Download the file indicated by the "path" field.
 - Tear down the SSL (SFTP) and disconnect.
