Qumulo's Cloud-Based Monitoring


Outlines the configuration and support for Cloud-based Monitoring.


  • Cluster running Qumulo Core

Cloud-Based Monitoring is an internal monitoring tool that allows Qumulo’s Customer Success team to proactively monitor your cluster. Enabling this feature in the UI or via the qq CLI allows the cluster to send detailed diagnostic data over an encrypted connection to a Qumulo cloud instance. Qumulo has developed a proprietary application that aggregates cluster diagnostic data and sends alerts to our Customer Success team should an issue arise.

Once enabled, the following data will be collected by Qumulo so that our team can proactively reach out if an incident occurs.

  • Cluster name and number of nodes
  • Performance and capacity statistics
  • Notification of hardware and software issues
  • Configuration data including users, groups, shares and exports
  • Logs, stack traces, and core dumps

Note: The Cloud-Based Monitoring service does not collect file & path names, client IP addresses, and login information (such as usernames & passwords).


Our team receives alerts 24/7 for the following incidents via Cloud-based Monitoring so that we can be available for help when you need it the most:

  • Drive CRC errors & SMART status alerts
  • Drive Failures (SSD & HDD)
  • Capacity Triggers
  • Power Supply Failure
  • Fan failure
  • New Process Core Dump
  • Recused Node
  • Node Offline
  • Lost Communication with Cluster

Depending on the severity of the issue and the current state of the cluster, a member from our team will reach out in the following ways. Primarily, your team will be notified via Slack or email for most incidents listed above. For critical alerts, our team will call the phone number provided for the technical contact to resolve the issue. Reference Qumulo's SLA agreement below for additional details on expected response times.


We highly recommend that you enable Remote Support with Cloud-Based Monitoring so that our team can provide fast support during critical issues. Reference Qumulo's Remote Support article for additional details.
