QNAP monitoring

The product obtains all data from QNAP Q'center via ssh.
Do not connect it directly to QNAP storage devices, that does not work.

Storage connectivity

  • Connect to the QNAP Q'center as admin and allow ssh access
    QNAP Storage management

  • Create OS level user on the QNAP Q'center appliance, preferably xormon with no any special rights
