Heartbeat to Monitor FTP Server Status

Is there a way to monitor the status of an FTP server using heartbeat? There isn't an ftp monitor type like there is for http

You can monitor a TCP port with heartbeat, and at least check that the server has the portname open, but there's no proper FTP support.

Given the declining popularity of FTP it's not on our roadmap currently, though that could change if we hear from more users.

FTP is useful for testing network bandwidth, would be a dream for metricbeat to be able to logon, push or pull ftp content and record the time to download/upload.

Having said that a TCP payload option to measure bandwidth would be useful, maybe bundled with a Heartbeat listening client that you could install on remote nodes for testing bandwidth.
