ftp and sftp monitoring improvements

We have improved our ftp and sftp monitoring by adding an option to upload, download and delete a file.

If you specify a username and password when configuring your ftp/sftp monitor the monitor will automatically logon to your server and then processed to upload a small file, retrieve it and then delete it.

Previously we just used to check that your ftp server responded on the port.

The optional additional tests check all the major features of your ftp server are working.
