Cloud-Based Monitoring via Custom Proxy


Outlines how to connect to Cloud-Based Monitoring via custom proxy


  • Qumulo Core 2.6.4 or higher

NOTE: VPN remote support is not available when connecting to Cloud-based Monitoring via a customer-specified proxy.


Qumulo supports connecting to Cloud-Based Monitoring through a customer-specified proxy. This functionality is provided via an updated qq command and corresponding REST API endpoint. You can specify a custom proxy and port for both MQ (cloud based monitoring), and S3 (used as a target for core dumps and log uploads).

Using the ‘--all-proxy-host’ flag will configure both S3 and MQ to communicate via the same proxy settings. If you plan on using a single proxy for cloud-based monitoring, use the --all-proxy-host options.

The qq documentation for


is provided below, with the updates highlighted:

usage: qq set_monitoring_conf 

[-h] [--enabled] [--disabled] [--vpn-enabled]
[--vpn-disabled] [--mq-host MQ_HOST]
[--mq-port MQ_PORT]
[--mq-proxy-host MQ_PROXY_HOST]
[--mq-proxy-port MQ_PROXY_PORT]
[--s3-proxy-host S3_PROXY_HOST]
[--s3-proxy-port S3_PROXY_PORT]
[--all-proxy-host HOST] [--all-proxy-port PORT]
[--period PERIOD] [--vpn-host VPN_HOST]

  • There is a typo in the article.  both --mq-host and --mq-port have _ instead of -.

  • Thanks for catching that David! The article has been updated with the proper commands.
